Our curriculum integrates the principles, practices, and ethics of library and information science with an in-depth understanding of the people who use information systems in their work and communities. You may choose a specific area or areas in which to specialize, under the guidance of designated faculty advisors. You’ll analyze the field and plan experiences that prepare you for employment, and work with faculty members who have deep connections within the profession.
