Information Management Department

Information Management

Information is power. How we understand, use, and manage it shapes all aspects of our lives. We empower students to be critical thinkers and leading information professionals who promote equity through the access, use, evaluation, sharing, and creation of information. Our Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) program is the only ALA accredited program in Minnesota.
