“Librarianship reclaimed Dr. Möller in 1974, when he became the University of Ottawa’s Chief Librarian. In 1977, he came to McGill as Undergraduate Librarian, and also began teaching the “Audiovisual Materials” course in the Graduate School of Library Science, as the School was then called. From 1981 to 1984—during a vulnerable moment for the School, after it received conditional accreditation—Dr. Möller served as Director providing essential leadership, guiding the School towards a secure future. — In Memoriam tribute to Dr. Hans Möller, McGill School of Information Studies
