Shape how people use information—now and for decades to come.
That’s what you’ll learn to do in our information and library science programs: work with and manage the information that is central to people’s work and lives, and help people access it in ways that are easy and helpful.
It’s a big task, and one that’s in high demand. With your curiosity and talents, and our nationally recognized faculty and programs—in 2013 U.S. News & World Report ranked our programs eighth nationally—you’ll be ready.
