About the Bowden Agenda

The Bowden Agenda links projects, funded research, publications, and professional development conducted or supported by the Virginia and Charles Bowden Professor of Librarianship.

The overall goal of the agenda is to strengthen the connections between The University of Texas at Austin School of Information and the international library community. As such the majority of the work of the agenda will have strong collaborations with practitioners. 

The professorship and agenda are made possible with a generous endowment by Virginia & Charles Bowden.
