The electronic files included in this collection date from 2000-2002. They were created primarily by Anne Woodsworth, dean of Pratt’s School of Information and Library Science from 1999-2001. Dean Woodsworth’s files were passed to Marie L. Radford, who became acting dean of SILS when Dr. Woodsworth was made Pratt’s acting provost on June 1, 2002. This period of time was a very active one administratively because Pratt Institute was in the midst of the Middle States accreditation process. The documents indicate that a major revision of the SILS core curriculum took place and that Pratt entered a period of strategic planning. Among records included are documents related to the accreditation process; faculty meeting agendas, minutes and updates; statistical reports; reports related to the curriculum; syllabi and course planning documentation. Pertinent subseries, organized alphabetically by subject, have been created to reflect the content covered by the electronic records in this collection
Included are correspondences, minutes, agendas, directories, biographies and announcements regarding the Archons of Colophon - an association of American library administrators, in which Anne Woodsworth was involved.
This series documents the school's relocation to the current Manhattan campus at 140 West 14th st, which was completed in 2002. Also included are facilities reports and documents that deal directly with the Manhattan campus.
This series contains digital correspondence between the creators of the collections and other administrative personnel in and around the SILS program. Topics discussed include curriculum, meetings, employment status, etc.
This subseries contains agendas and meeting minutes from Board of Advisor’s meetings, as well as strategic planning documents. Accreditation site visits, curriculum revision and strategic planning are among the issues covered.
This subseries includes three completed sections of the ALISE (Association for Library and Information Science Education) Statistical Report Questionnaire (2000); related data compilations; and accreditation material related to ALISE.
This collection of materials remains unprocessed due to inability to access and reformat these digital files. Contents are assumed to span all areas of the SILS Electronic Records, ranging from 2000 -2002.

Radford, the files cover a range of academic and administrative areas, including the accreditation process; faculty meeting agendas, minutes and updates; statistical reports; reports related to the curriculum; syllabi and course planning documentation.
