IS_LT 9428: History of Books and Media SP2018

This course examines the history and philosophy of books and printing from the origins of writing to the Internet, emphasizing the effects of changes in communication and information technologies. The focus is on the social, cultural, intellectual, scientific, and religious impacts of shifts in the media for preserving and transmitting information.

 

This elective course in library and information science focuses on both scholarly and practical skills in the field of Book History. We begin with an overview of Book History as a sub-discipline of LIS. This course for librarians concentrates on the foundational terminology and techniques needed to prepare for roles in rare books and special collections in libraries and other institutions of cultural record.

IS_LT 7305: Foundations of Library and Information Science, FS2017

This asynchronous online course in the historical and philosophical foundations of library and information science examines the idea of the library and the influence of librarianship and information science in intellectual and cultural history. We study the origins and development of libraries and related institutions (universities, archives, and museums) in light of revolutionary changes in communication and information media and technologies. The focus is on fundamental theoretical principles, ethics, assumptions, and values; the issues at the center of current debates in the literature; and the challenges and prospects for the future of the book, research, institutions, and the information professions.
