Evelyn Daniel received an A.B. in History from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington in 1968, an M.L.S. from the University of Maryland in 1969 and a Ph.D. in Information Science from that same institution in 1974. She has worked as a practitioner in all types of libraries and in a library/information consulting agency. Her faculty career began at Maryland as Director of the Undergraduate Library Science Education Program and as Director of Admissions for the School of Library Information Servgices (1969-72). She has been a faculty member at the University of Kentucky (1972-74), the University of Rhode Island (1974-76), Syracuse University (1976-85; Dean from 1980-85), and at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (1985 to date; Dean from 1985-90). She has also taught on campus and distance education courses for Emporia (1991), the University of Illinois (1996-97) and Syracuse University (various dates, most recently 1998).

I am interested in change in organizations as a function of the introduction of new information technology. How does change unfold in new organizational structures, different tasks and relationships of members of the institution, and how do these changes impact the surrounding environment? My work has been primarily in educational settings (universities and public school systems in particular) and in corporate settings.

Recent research and development activities include an Internet Training grant for School Librarians and School Technologists funded by the U.S. Dept. of Education (1997-98) and a collaborative project, the North Carolina Botanical Information Network, with the North Carolina Botanical Garden, the North Carolina Herbarium and the UNC Dept. of Biology. The latter project received initial funding from the UNC Technology Initiative (1997-98) and subsequent support from the Institute on Museum and Library Science.
