U-M School of Information  1991-2006 [series]

The U-M School of Information series, 1991-1992006 (7.8 lin. ft.) relates to Atkins tenure there, as professor and dean. It consists of seven subseries. The first, Meetings and activities 1991-2002 (2.9 lin. ft.) is arranged chronologically. Each file documents an event in Atkins' schedule, though many of the files contain little content. Titles of talks given by Atkins are given in quotes in the folder titles. While occasionally the text of the talk is available, more often only images of the slides have been preserved. In 1997, Atkins' assistant created a binder for all events instead of creating a file for each event. The contents of this binder are in the folders labeled "Activities chron." The second subseries, Topical, 1992-2006 (2.5 lin. ft.) contains subject files relating to the conception and development of the School of Information, information-related professional organizations, and academic programs. In addition there is some biographical information contained in folders prefixed Atkins.

The third subseries under the SI series relates to the Digital Library Program, 1994-2000 (0.6 lin. ft.). Wendy Lougee, who was the director of the Digital Library Program, and later the Associate Director for Digital Library Services, prepared a briefing book for Atkins for the Digital Library Program, and the contents are contained in this series. Materials are presented in chronological order and comprise correspondence, meetings with "3D's" (Dan Atkins, Don Riggs, Doug Van Howeling) and color transparencies for talks. The fourth SI subseries, Kellogg Foundation, 1995-2001 (0.8 lin. ft.) contains materials related to Kellogg-funded projects, arranged alphabetically. The fifth subseries, Other funders, 1992-2001 (0.4 lin. ft.) includes files documenting research projects and project proposals to the National Science Foundation (NSF), Ameritech, and Industrial Partners of Computer Science and Engineering (IPoSCE). The sixth subseries, Alliance for Community Technology (ACT), 1991-1998 (0.2 lin. ft.) contains files created by Katherine Willis who managed ACT under Atkins' direction. Finally, the seventh SI subseries, Community Information Corps, 2001-2005 (0.4 lin. ft.) consists of files created by Peter Keller-Transburg related to his staffing the Community Information Corps (CIC) at the School of Information.
