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

Information management is a key to success in business, industry, government, politics,
commerce, education and, well, we could go on. You could, too.
