Undergraduate Program for Information Resource Management at School of Information Management
A Brief Introduction of School of Information Management
School of Information Management, Central China Normal University was developed from the Department of Library and Information Science in 1983. Its history can be dated back to 1920, when the Specialty of Library Science was established in Wenhua University by the Chinese Americans Ms. Wei Dihua, Mr. Shen Zurong and Mr. Hu Qingsheng (It developed into the College of Library Science independent from Wenhua University in 1930). Now there are 3 specialties for ordinary full-time undergraduates, 10 master degree programmes and 2 doctoral degree programmes, with the total number of existing undergraduates, Master's degree candidates, Doctoral candidates and foreign students being more than 800. The faculty number by June, 2013 is 52, of whom 38 are full-time teachers, 16 professors, 15 associate professors, 9 doctoral supervisors and 20 master tutors. Among the many excellent teachers, there are two “Talents of the New Century” (awarded by the Ministry of Education), one “National Outstanding Teacher” and one “Famous Teacher in Hubei Province”. More than 95% of the full-time teachers have their doctorate and nearly half of the teachers have overseas experiences.
The School’s strength in scientific research has been improved greatly. By the end of 2012, the teachers have undertaken 3 key programs of the National Social Science Fund, 27 general programs and youth programs of the National Social Science Fund, 10 programs of the National Natural Science Fund, 24 programs of the Humanities and Social Science Fund of the Ministry of Education and many other programs commissioned by national ministries and local government (more than 30), the funds of which are more than 24 million Yuan. Since 2007, more than 500 articles have been published in CSSCI core journals. Besides, more than 100 academic monographs and more than 30 teaching materials have been published. These achievements have won more than 10 prizes, such as “the National E-commerce Competition Award”, “Outstanding Achievements in Social Science of Hubei Province” and “Natural Science Thesis Prize in Wuhan”.
Our School has a large number of research centers, bases and training centers. Currently there are 2 provincial research centers and bases, 5 university research centers, and 4 affiliated training centers. The professional documentation centers and libraries provided with a great variety of books and periodicals, together with the well-equipped teaching experimental centers, especially those high-level laboratories such as “Information Management and Information System Laboratory”, “E-commerce Laboratory”, “CA Security-authenticated Laboratory”and “Knowledge Exploration and Intelligent Services Laboratory”, which are powerful guarantees for the School's teaching and scientific research.
Our School has achieved remarkable results in discipline and specialty construction. Information Science is a key discipline in Hubei Province. Besides, Electronic Commerce is a brand specialty in Hubei province and one of the country's E-commerce model specialties. Our School has also won many honorary titles such as the “Famous E-Commerce Schools in China”. In the 2012 results of the discipline evaluation announced by the Ministry of Education, the first-class discipline Library Information Science and Archives Management under Information Resource Management ranked fifth in the country. Moreover, Information Management & Information System was named A+ specialty. As for the course construction, our School has one national top-quality curriculum project (E-commerce management), one national model course of bilingual demonstration (An Overview of E-commerce), and one national top-quality course of network education.
Adhering to the educational principle of “students orientation, teachers first”, our School actively promote the internationalization by developing extensive academic exchanges and cooperation with the United States, Britain, South Korea, Australia, Canada, Finland and other countries and carrying out the training mode “2+2” for undergraduates (a mode under which diploma and degree certificates acknowledged both at home and abroad are conferred for students meeting the graduation requirements) with the well-known universities in countries such as South Korea and Australia. Besides, our School has established the educational ideas and development direction of “seeking development through innovation, displaying strengths by originality” after accumulation and development of nearly 30 years. Moreover, aiming at constructing a training mode characterized by “a combination of art and science, an integration of related disciplines, the unity of theory and applied technologies”, we placed an emphasis on cultivating the students’ ability in practical manipulation, international communication and academic research so that the students would be more competitive.
