This presentation will discuss the history of informatics as a discipline and highlight the various ways that informatics and records & information management are intertwined, particularly in the use of information technology. Professor Hook will focus on the emerging area of legal informatics, which is her area of expertise and where there is considerable synergy with records & information management. Established in 2000, the Indiana University School of Informatics was the first school of Informatics in the United States and the second school of Informatics in the world. As a relatively new discipline, the field of informatics has continued to evolve in the ten years since the school was formed. Since that time, the school has expanded its curricular offerings to include programs ranging from undergraduate certificates to Ph.D. programs. The school has also embraced a variety of technologies in order to expand its distance education offerings.
