Dr. Paul Solomon

Paul Solomon served as statistician, operations research analyst, and program analyst/evaluator in several agencies of the Federal Government and as a Researcher  for a Federal Contract Research Center prior to joining the faculty of the School of Information and Library Science (SILS) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where for the last eight years he has served as Associate Dean, Interim Dean, and Senior Associate Dean.

Dr. Solomon's research focuses on social studies of information, which try to understand what information is to people as they engage in life and work tasks, in such contexts as schools, government agencies, and universities, and with such populations as children, managers, academic chemists/chemical engineers, and the elderly.

Dr. Solomon's teaching most recently has been focused in the areas of research methods (particularly intensive methods), management and administration, and user perspectives.  He earned a B.S. in Business Administration from the Pennsylvania State University; an M.B.A. from the University of Washington; and M.L.S. and PhD degrees from the University of Maryland. Dr. Solomon was a Fulbright Professor in Finland during the 1997-1998 academic year.

Paul is the author of numerous information and library science publications, many of which have been widely cited and several have been recognized as 'best papers' by the American Society for Information Science and Technology. He is an active member of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, the Association for Library and Information Science Education, the American Library Association, and the Academy of Management.
