Hopkins inducted into the Wisconsin Library Hall of Fame

October 28, 2016
UW-Madison's Diane McAfee Hopkins was inducted into the Wisconsin Library Hall of Fame on Oct. 27.

Hopkins is an alumna of the School of Education, having earned her Ph.D. from the Department of Curriculum and Instruction in 1981. She is a professor emerita of UW-Madison's School of Library and Information Studies (SLIS). 

Hopkins held positions in Texas and Michigan before coming to Wisconsin as the director of the Bureau for Instructional Media and Technology at the Department of Public Instruction for 10 years from 1977-1987. In 1987, Hopkins became the first African-American SLIS faculty member.

While at SLIS, Hopkins taught about school library media administration and intellectual freedom. Hopkins is regarded as an expert on intellectual freedom, and has received many grants and awards for her research, which has influenced many librarians in Wisconsin and across the United States to uphold intellectual freedom values.
