Digital Image Management

Suggested Program of Study

The School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) has developed a program of study for students in the areas of digital image collection management. The coursework designated on this program of study will provide the skills, knowledge, dispositions and professional values MLIS graduates will utilize in a career in a variety of cultural institutions such as museums and libraries. Students with an interest in a particular aspect of work (e.g., digital preservation, content management systems, digitization) or a specific institutional setting (e.g., museums, archives or corporations) may wish to consult with their advisor to select alternate elective courses.

In addition to the successful completion of a 36-credit program of study, students will provide evidence that they have met the SLIS program core competencies by submitting a satisfactory portfolio that serves as the capstone experience for the MLIS degree.
