About LIS / Mission  
LIS, Where Technology and the Mind meetThe faculty of the Library and Information Science Program educates men and women at the master’s, certificate, and doctoral levels to become leaders in libraries, archives, and information centers; conducts research to advance the information sciences; and performs public service to support the information professions and the public good. The faculty, staff, and students of the Program constitute a community of learners in support of this mission.

The Program offers two degree programs--the Master of Library and Information Science, accredited by the American Library Association, and the Doctor of Philosophy in Library and Information Science, which educates its graduates for careers in research, teaching, and administration--and a Certificate of Advanced Study, for professionals who desire to further their careers. The MLIS degree program, offered both on campus and through the Web-based FastTrack MLIS, provides graduates with a foundation of professional knowledge and skills as well as opportunities for specialized study in Medical Librarianship and Informatics, Archives and Records Management, Preservation Management, Digital Libraries, Services to Children and Youth, and School Library Certification.
