East Tennessee State University. Division of Library Service

 Organization

The ETSU Division of Library Service was begun in 1936 as a subject program rather than an academic department. The purpose of the program was to train students for school librarianship and to conduct "Library Institutes" (in-service training program) for school librarians in the summer. It was a part of the ETSU library from 1936 until 1949. In the 1960s, it became a division of the College of Education; in 1977 being the Division of Library Service; and in 1982 the Program of Library Service. The division was headed by Elise Barrett from 1949-1976 followed by Dorothy S. Baird from 1977-1987.
