Abstract:
In accordance with social changes, Library Science (LS) schools have transformed themselves into Library and Information Studies (LIS) schools in the last decade. The first LIS school in Taiwan to take the lead into Information and Communications (IC) was the Department of Library and Information Studies in Shih-Hsin University. Curriculum reform has resulted in a broader range of jobs for students, leading to increased enrollment. A potential move to join the College of Information has become an issue among students and faculty members. This paper presents the results of a preliminary survey among students and faculty members regarding the move. Asked the open-ended question: "What do you think of the Department of Information and Communications joining the College of Information?", full time students and students from the Continuing Education (CE) program gave different answers. Responses received from faculty and students were sorted into categories of reasons and concerns.
