Content and structure elements
Scope and content
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
System of arrangement
Alphabetical by subject.
