Collection Historical Note

The Urbana-Champaign Big Broadband (UC2B) Initiative is a federally-funded broadband deployment project funded by the National Telecommunications and Information Administration, with financial support from the State of Illinois, the city of Urbana, the city of Champaign, the University of Illinois, and a number of local governmental agencies in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois. The University of Illinois served as the lead agency on the grant. As of summer 2012, the City of Champaign is serving as the lead agency on this inter-governmental effort. UC2B exists to build high-speed broadband in Champaign-Urbana, with subsidized connections to low-income neighborhoods, anchor social institutions, and government institutions.

Biographical Note

The Library School of the University of Illinois was founded in September 1893 as the School of Library Economy, and was housed at the Armour Institute in Chicago. In September 1897 the School was moved to the University of Illinois.1 In December 1902, degrees of Bachelor of Arts in Library Science and Bachelor of Library Science were approved.2 The bachelor's degree program was discontinued in 1951.3 In 1950 the Library School was placed under the Dean of the Division of Communications4 but regained its independent status in 1954.5 As of September 1, 1971, the School, which was responsible to the Dean of Library Administration, began reporting directly to the Chancellor.6 In 1962 the Advisory Council of Librarians was created, composed of leading librarians in the state, representing each of the major types of libraries.7 The name of the School was changed in 1959 to the Graduate School of Library Science.8 In 1981, the name was changed again to the Graduate School of Library and Information Science.9 School goals are to prepare librarians and information scientists for professional work through essential basic studies and specialization by course choices and independent studies; to promote and conduct pure and applied research; and to provide public service such as continuing education, publications, and consulting.10
