University Library Faculty Profile
Stephen E. Wiberley, Jr.
Professor and Bibliographer for the Social Sciences
My research has addressed several aspects of use of libraries and information in the humanities, user persistence in displaying information system postings, vendor-supplied statistics of use of digital resources, patterns of publication among academic librarians, and prize-winning books in the humanities and social sciences.

After earning my Ph.D. from Yale University in 1975 and an M.L.S. from State University of New York at Albany in 1977, I became Bibliographer for the Social Sciences at UIC in 1978. As Bibliographer, I develop the UIC Library's collection in the following fields:
African-American Studies, Anthropology, Criminal Justice, Gender and Women’s Studies, History, Jewish Studies, Latin American and Latino Studies, Political Science, Psychology, Public Administration, Social Work, and Sociology. Faculty and students from those programs are welcome to contact me (email@example.com or 312/996-2730) with any questions or concerns they may have about the Library, especially regarding acquisitions of resources for the collection.
From 1994 through June 1998, I served as chair of the editorial board and editor of ACRL Publications in Librarianship, a monographic series. We published four books that I edited.
- Restructuring Academic Libraries: Organizational Development in the Wake of Technological Change, ed. Charles A. Schwartz (1997)
- Deborah J. Grimes, Centrality of the Academic Library: User Success Through Service, Access, and Tradition (1998).
- Marie L. Radford, The Reference Encounter: Interpersonal Communication in the Academic Library (1999)
- People Come First: User-Centered Academic Library Service, ed. Dale S. Montanelli and Patricia Stenstrom (1999)
In the American Library Association, I have served as chair of the Library Research Round Table (2003-2004) and am now a member of the Committee on Research and Statistics.
At the University of Illinois at Chicago, I have been a member of the Senate Committee on Educational Policy (SCEP) and its Undergraduate Subcommittee since 1993. I served as SCEP’s vice-chair from 1999 to 2005.
In 1998, I was elected to a three-year term on the Campus Promotion and Tenure Committee. In 2001, I was reelected to a second three-year term. I served as co-chair of the committee from 2001 to 2004.
From September 2005 through April 2006, I chaired the UIC NCA 2007 Reaccreditation Self-Study Committee and was a member of the campus’s Reaccreditation Steering Committee.
