Deans' and Directors' Lecture

Since 1986 the School of Library and Information Science has held the annual Deans' and Directors' Lecture in honor of previous administrators.  The lecture is usually  preceded by the induction of new members into the Beta Omega Chapter of Beta Phi Mu, the national honor society in Library and Information Science. Thus,  video presentations may include mention of this event and/or introduction of the new members.
