John Shuler, Associate Professor and Government Information Librarian at UIC, will be remembered in a service to be held on Wednesday, October 5, 2016, from 4-5 p.m. in the Cardinal Room, Student Center East. A reception will follow.
John died unexpectedly in late June at age 59. John had been at UIC for 23 years. He was nationally known in the Government Documents community, writing and speaking frequently on government information issues. John was actively engaged in the Library and on the Faculty Senate, serving on numerous committees and task forces over the years. He was also an active supporter of the faculty union and Treasurer of the UIC United Faculty organization.
The memorial service is being planned by John’s colleagues in the University Library, the UIC Faculty Senate, and the UIC United Faculty. We invite you to join us to remember John and celebrate his many contributions to UIC, the Union, and the field of government information.
