Administrative history

The University of Ottawa Library School is established in 1938 by Father Auguste Morisset, University Librarian. The School offers a one year full-time program and four year part-time program. A masters' programme is added in 1950. Father Morisset, who held the positions of School Director and University Librarian, withdraws from the latter position in 1959, to devote himself only to management of the School. In 1976, numerous problems, aggravated by a shortage of teaching staff, force the closure of the School.
