MLS: Library Media Specialist
The Department of Library and Information Studies (LIS) offers a Master of Library Science (MLS) program that prepares graduates to serve in academic libraries, public libraries, school library media centers, as well as special libraries and other information agencies. On the cutting edge of information technology and service to information-seeking adults and children, many MLS graduates work in libraries housed in communities, universities, or schools, or in archives, film collections, law firms, museums, newspapers, television, or web development companies. Here they are expected to provide expertise as web site developers, database authorities, technology leaders, trainers, and varied other activities that connect people with information and enrichment. Other graduates go into specialties such as information freelancing, network management, or web design. Optional specialization in school librarianship results in certification as a Library Media Specialist by the New York State Education Department.
