Sept. 6, 2007 – The grand finale of the School of Information and Library Science’s (SILS) 75th anniversary is set to take place on Sept. 17, 2007, which coincides with the date the school first began teaching classes in 1931. The finale will begin at 3 p.m. in the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s Memorial Hall.
The Carnegie Corporation provided SILS with its first grant of $100,000 to enable the school to operate for three years and to make permanent its conditional accreditation from the American Library Association.
Dr. Gregorian will be joined at the finale by James Moeser, chancellor of UNC- at Chapel Hill, and James B. Hunt, Jr., former governor of North Carolina.
Please plan to join us at Memorial Hall on Sept. 17. It is sure to be a grand finale!
