Dominican University’s Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS) has appointed Tonyia J. Tidline as director of its new Doctorate of Philosophy in Library and Information Science program. Tidline is also serving as an associate professor in the graduate school.

Tidline received her PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from The Ohio State University and a master’s degree in library and information science from Kent State University. Her research interests include information behavior, administration and management of library and information services, research methodology, visual literacy, and information policy.

Recently an assistant professor in the School of Library and Information Studies at the University of Alabama, Tidline has also been a lecturer and adjunct faculty in the School of Library and Information Science at San Jose State University. Her previous positions include public information officer at the Wexner Center of the Arts and research associate for the Ohio Legislative Service Commission.

One of only 50 schools in the country to be accredited by the American Library Association, Dominican’s graduate library school is particularly distinguished in the areas of children’s and youth literature, community informatics, cultural heritage/archival studies and the management of public libraries.

Founded in 1930, Dominican University’s Graduate School of Library and Information Science has grown to be one of the nation’s largest master’s degree-granting programs.
