"The information age has created a demand for individuals who are adept at organizing, managing, and making sense of large-scale information, and in response our school continues to update its curriculum and prepare our students for expanding career opportunities," said Sandra Hirsh, Professor and Director of the SJSU information school. "We're pleased that Peter Derycz will be joining our school's International Advisory Council, providing valuable insight as we continue to ensure that our programs meet the evolving needs of tomorrow's information professionals."
Mr. Deryz commented "San Jose State's School of Library and Information Science is one of the most cutting edge graduate educational programs in any field. That may seem to be a natural occurrence in California's Silicon Valley, but it doesn't happen overnight. Sandy Hirsh's leadership has been key in the success of this program. I look very much forward to working with her and sharing my knowledge and experience, as well as provide a corporate perspective to the International Advisory Council. It will also be a great privilege for me to get a preview of the future of the information profession as the brightest minds in the field are doing their studies and research there."
In addition to serving as the President and CEO of Research Solutions, Mr. Derycz is also the President and CEO of wholly-owned subsidiary Reprints Desk, which provides library automation technology and services to academic institutions and corporations worldwide.
