Abstract

Information professionals have long advocated the importance of their role in society. A study of leading public opinion publications suggests, however, that while information issues are prominent in such publications, the faculty engaged in teaching and researching archival, library, and information science disciplines are not visible. This seems like a lost opportunity. The following essay explores this matter in some detail, considering what has been published in important public opinion publications and speculating on what options the faculty of archives, library, and information science programs might consider to rectify their lack of visibility.
