As alumna of the Faculty of Information Studies at the University of Toronto, I like to check in periodically as to what is happening with the program. They have had a standing call for new faculty for quite as while, so I am pleased to see an announcement on the front of the website explaining who have now been brought in. It is a wonderfully diverse group.
I extend my personal congratulations to Mike McCaffrey who has been named lecturer. We attended FIS in and around the same time, and even as a student he was already an expert on international and government documents. I have heard good things from students who have taken his course, so it is good the school is officially recognizing him as Lecturer. Kudos!
The school is still looking for two faculty members in the areas of information organization and classification; and information resources, seeking, services, and reference; and one faculty member in the area of museum studies.
