Master of Library and Information Studies
The ability to generate, access, and use information has become the key factor in personal, social, and economic growth. The expanding global information society is encouraging the free flow of information; and the impact of rapidly changing information and communications technologies is reshaping our personal, educational, and social activities, our organizational and political practices, and our local, national, and international institutions. The impact of these changes on all types of organizations and on the professionals who manage them is unprecedented. Managing, organizing, and providing access to information have become key elements in the promotion of a free and democratic society. Information management covers not only resources in traditional library settings, but encompasses all information assets whether they are physical or digital. Information studies practitioners encourage lifelong learning through providing access to information in a multicultural society.
