In a world where technology allows constant connection with people thousands of miles away, it’s easy to forget that such effortless communication was once unavailable to us. Despite the technological challenges of the day, the School of Information Sciences found a way to be the first school at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, to establish a distance education program in the 1980s. It just didn’t look anything like it does today.
Information Sciences has been very well represented among those honored as the school year draws to a close. These most recent announcements follows on the heels of the enormous honor announced two weeks ago for Dr. Carol Tenopir representing the University of Tennessee as our SEC Faculty Achievement Award winner.
