Our students learn to analyze the information needs of users — applying a variety of tools and technologies to locate and evaluate information and organize, manage and preserve information and materials so it becomes an accessible source of knowledge.
You'll work closely with experienced faculty and other master's and doctoral students through analytical papers, experience reports, teaching and service activities and self reflective essays. Our students emerge from this degree with a record of publications, professional experience and an extensive portfolio.
SLIS has an established reputation for producing leaders in professional service at local, national and international levels. You'll benefit from an extensive alumni community (and the New England LIS community) that enriches the doctoral experience. Our program emphasizes scholarship, teaching and service and prepares students for research and faculty positions.
