Education for the information profession is in a state of radical change and re-design. Academic units are being reorganized around new interdisciplinary paradigms, while new curriculums are being developed to address the needs of a growing and diverse information profession. Existing schools, which offer multiple information degrees and are based upon interdisciplinary models, such as Syracuse, Pittsburgh, Drexel and Rutgers universities have been or are now joined by others, such as the University of Michigan and the University of California at Berkeley. Plans are in place to create new “information schools” at Penn State, Indiana University, UNC Charlotte, and other universities. New information colleges are being considered from the University of Arizona to the University of Rhode Island - and many points between.
