Introduction

The goal of the Master of Library and Information Studies Program is to provide qualified candidates with graduate education which equips them for careers as leaders in the information professions.

The student is introduced to the development and significance of information management wherever it is practiced, to the underlying principles of the profession, and to the techniques of information organization, analysis, retrieval, and use. Each student is challenged to explore and question through a curriculum which attempts to balance professional studies with supervised practical experience and advanced academic study or individual research.
