Graduate School of Library and Information Science


The Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS) at UIUC is recognized as a premier institution, frequently ranked number one and consistently among the top three U.S. LIS schools. For more than 100 years, GSLIS has prepared students for careers as leaders in information professions and research. As one of the oldest LIS schools in the country, Illinois helped establish and develop the methods used in the field of library and information science today. Graduates are adept at using the latest technology and methods for reference, research, information organization, and other professional tasks. The field is necessarily interdisciplinary, and the School recruits faculty with strong theoretical and methodological foundations who understand libraries and the broader context of information systems and services.
