PhD in Library and Information Management
The doctoral program enables students to conduct research that will contribute to society’s understanding of the creation, diffusion, and utilization of information. The program also places special emphasis on developing effective teachers. The program draws upon the strengths of SLIM’s academically diverse faculty, a unique curriculum designed for today’s working scholar, and an environment of faculty-student interaction.

The classes are held at Emporia State University-Kansas City in Overland Park (Kansas City area), Kansas.
