Robert M. Hayes (born 1926) is Professor Emeritus and former dean of the School of Library Service (1974-1989), now the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies at UCLA. He jointly taught mathematics and information science. Hayes was president of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, formerly known as the American Documentation Institute (1962-1963). He was visiting professor at Loughborough University, Strossmayer University, University of New South Wales, Khazar University, Keio University, University of LIS in Tsukuba Science City (Japan), Nankai University, University of Illinois, and University of Washington.

Hayes had a lifetime influence on information science.[1] He was an expert on information systems. He co-authored with Joseph Becker Information Storage and Retrieval, the most comprehensive text in the field at that time (1962).[2] Hayes was responsible for the training program in library automation for the ALA staff at 1962 Seattle World's Fair[3] to introduce online retrieval to the general public.[4] His current research focuses on information economy and philosophical foundations of information science.

He received his BA, MA and PhD (1952) in Mathematics from UCLA.
