Daniel: Thank you for asking the question -- !

I would appreciate hearing the results on this too, from my own 
experience, and that of other potential and present doctoral students
it is a serious concern on many different levels.

  Lack of faculty who are supportive in these areas = lack of a strong 
curricula and future in LIS programs. Being 'marginalized' as you may 
know, is a good term to use. The pool of talent exists out there, so there 
are other excuses. 

All the best,
