Christine Weber, EdD, MLS, AHIP

Senior Director, Library and Faculty Member





Why ICO?

ICO’s smaller, stand alone, optometric college atmosphere is very attractive with a sterling reputation and a long, successful history. The ICO Library produces "VisionCite," a vision science journal article citation database that indexes vision science journals, some of which are not indexed by PubMed. "VisionCite" is available via subscription to any vision science professional and institution. ICO Library staff members are awesome and include experienced, dedicated, professional librarians who are eager to help students succeed at ICO.


An information management professional for over 25 years, Christine is experienced in corporate, academic, and non-for-profit environments. She has also been a small business owner.

She currently serves a member of ICO’s Academic Administration Team, the Educational Technology Committee, and the Distance Learning Task Force.
