Library and Science is an interdisciplinary field of study that centers on the documentation that records our stories, memory, history, and knowledge. L&S professionals serve as custodians of printed materials, records, photographs, audio-visual materials, and ephemera, in both analogue and digital forms. Librarians and other information professionals collect, organize, preserve, and provide access to these materials and are the stewards of the knowledge that they contain. We connect people to the resources that they need to understand their histories, communities, and the world around them. We advocate for free and open access to these resources and train folks to use these materials to better themselves and society as life-long learners.
L&S professionals work in public libraries, school libraries, college and university libraries, corporate libraries, law libraries, medical libraries, special collections, historical societies, community archives, museums and galleries, non-profits, corporations, or anywhere that there is a need to collect, organize, and access documents and information resources.
A Master’s of Library and Information Science is required for professionals working in the L&S fields. Our program allows you to design a degree program that is tailored to your professional goals.
