Central Michigan University. Information Services, Organizational records collection
Information Services first appeared in the 1946 Central Michigan University Directory under the heading of News Bureau. It was renamed Information Services in the 1955-1956 Directory, later to become Media Relations, and is presently known as Public Relations (1999).
The duties of Information Services are to determine what is newsworthy, whether it is about new programs, campus development, faculty and staff, or unique ideas and personalities.
NOTE: Later information will be found under the name CMU. Public Relations and Marketing. Programs that were begun under the old name continue to be filed under it, so current football programs continue to be a part of this collection.
