Indiana University’s School of Library and Information Science (SLIS)  
at Bloomington invites applications for two full-time tenure-track  
faculty positions at the ranks of Assistant, Associate or Full  
Professor of Library and Information Science. The successful  
candidates will have earned doctorates in information science, library  
science or a closely related field and will demonstrate evidence of  
effective teaching and scholarship with experience/expertise in a core  
area of library and information science including, but not limited to:  
information retrieval, digital libraries, human-computer interaction,  
archives, reference, or academic and public libraries.

SLIS has an interdisciplinary faculty whose backgrounds include  
information science, cognitive science, computer science,  
librarianship, linguistics, philosophy, and political science. Its  
faculty was recently ranked first in North America for its scholarly  
productivity and impact. In addition to the Master of Library Science  
(MLS) degree, the school offers the Master of Information Science  
(MIS), a Ph.D. in Information Science and an extensive roster of dual  
degrees, certificates and specializations. The School’s programs have  
been accredited continuously by the American Library Association for  
more than sixty years.

Indiana University Bloomington is a major public research university  
with 1,700 faculty and 40,000 students. The beautiful campus, situated

research centers and institutes, as well as a wide array of  
distinguished academic departments and schools. Indiana University’s  
library collections are among the largest in the nation, and the  
university is consistently rated one of the best networked in the U.S.

Indiana University is an equal opportunity/affirmative action  
employer, offering a full range of benefits, including TIAA/CREF. The  
University has a strong commitment to principles of diversity and in

will likely begin in Spring 2009 or Fall 2010.
