Library and Information Science (LIS) has developed a distinctive program to serve the rapidly changing needs of future librarians, archivists, and information professionals in the Rocky Mountain region. It was also the first program to be accredited by the ALA in the past 20 years and it is the only program of its kind in the Rocky Mountain region. The Master's of Library and Information Science (MLIS) degree prepares graduates to serve in school, public, academic or specialized libraries, archives, and in business or corporate settings where the effective management of information is crucial. MLIS graduates will serve diverse information consumers; be critical consumers of research and reflective practitioners; have the skills to adapt to and effectively manage change; and adhere to the high ethical standards of the profession.
