ChangeOn the call were Kate Kosturski, Andrea Snyder, Jill Hurst-Wahl, Marc (in Calgary, Alberta), Donaldson and Maurice Coleman. (Marc and Donaldson were new to calling in!)

Kate started the conversation by talking about Pratt’s School of Information and Library Science becoming the Pratt Institute School of Information on October 5. (The announcement is here.) This brings up the difference between the i-schools (information) and the l-schools (library).

University of Maryland published Re-Envisioning the MLS: Findings, Issues, and Considerations, http://mls.umd.edu/wp-content/uploads/2015/08/Re

Information on ischools (information schools) are available at http://ischools.org

Eventually we moved to talk about libraries who will or will not cooperate with their neighboring libraries.
