The term library and information sciences was not in widespread use in my formative years, and it took some serendipity to find my way to it. Much has changed since then, but in some ways, I believe, the field is still evolving and still not well enough defined. Let me tell you first how I found my way to it and then tell you where I think we are today. Along the way, I hope to expand your view of the field and the exciting opportunities available within it. It seems that I have always been interested in how people find and use information. Among my earliest memories are happy times spent with my grandfather, a retired teacher/entrepreneur, who somehow managed to convey his zeal for acquiring the latest facts in our frequent trips to the library in the park across the street from our house in Elmhurst, Illinois. These adventures got across to me a connection between the library and information, a recurring theme in my life. Another area of interest entered my life in high school, when a friend’s father went to a seminar on automatic data processing, as it was then called, and its use in actuarial work. He gave me the big binder of information he received and told me that this was the field for me. I found the contents fascinating and added computer science to my interests. Undergraduate majors at the University of Dayton—which I attended—included mathematics and computer sciences, which in those days were closely linked since computer science had an emphasis on the approaches to analyzing numerical data. I enjoyed both mathematics and computer science but also found pleasure in a broad range of other subjects. Whatever I studied, I found myself most interested in how information was generated, how it was accessed, and what people did with it. Thus, it was reasonably clear to me at graduation from the University of Dayton that I wanted to work with information but not so clear how to do that. It was my good fortune to find an article about a field called information science and to have the author of that article answer my inquiry about prospects in the field with a long letter of advice. There were, in fact, he said, graduate schools at which I could learn about information science and a wide variety of jobs available to me after completing my graduate studies. It seemed that I was on track. I chose one of the schools that he had recommended, the University of Maryland, and obtained a wonderful education at the School of Library and Information
