School of Library and Information Science

Our name — School of Library and Information Science — only begins to tell our story.  From undergraduate to doctoral degrees, we explore information — where you find it, how you extract it, how you preserve it, how you put it to use.  Traditional libraries are defying tradition and becoming community hubs for information and interaction.  Information management is a key to success in business, industry, government, politics, commerce, education and, well, we could go on.  You could, too.

Participants needed in focus groups

Please join us for a discussion of the value of the School of Library and Information Science Master of Library and Information Science Degree to you or to your organization.   Representatives from the faculty and staff of the school will attend these meetings hosted by alumni in various geographic areas of the state.  Our program is scheduled for a re-accreditation visit in the spring of 2017.  In order to provide the best information possible to the visiting committee about the career choices of our alumni across the state, we ask that you come for a brief meeting to let us know how our alumni assist you in giving excellent library service to your community.  Whether you are in a public library, information center, corporate or business location, school library, college or university, or any other non-traditional setting, we would love to have your feedback.  Our alumni and employers of alumni are our best source of recommendations for improvement of our program. Please RSVP to Nonie Price at
