In 1989, IBM desiring to establish closer working relationships with libraries particularly with academic libraries established INFORMA as “a forum for current and prospective users of IBM technology in libraries.” INFORMA is directed by a steering committee composed of representatives from institutions currently using IBM technology for library automation, with IBM serving as corporate sponsor. Chair of the committee for the first year was Kaye Gapen, dean of the University of Wisconsin's General Library System, and an IBM consulting scholar. Jordan Scepanski, director of libraries and learning resources, California State University at Long Beach, is the current chair.
