Master of Library Science

The amount of information surrounding us increases every minute, and so does the value of people who can help us find what we need. In our Master of Library Science program, you will become one of these people.

You’ll learn to navigate the digital world. To find, organize, and preserve information—and connect people and communities to it. To lead, along with our other alumni, the reinvention of libraries and information centers for our information-intensive lives.

And you’ll learn how to do this in an ideal environment. U.S. News & World Report ranked our graduate programs in library and information studies eighth nationally in 2013, and our digital librarianship program seventh. The M.L.S. is accredited by the American Library Association.
