Library 1

No more shushing!  Today's librarians are tech-savvy information professionals.  Our library and information science students learn not only about books and traditional library skills, but also current technology, professional ethics, and web applications.

Convenient Online Classes!

Our classes are offered in a 100% online format – no campus visits required!
We offer the entire minor program online each school year, and also offer courses each summer in 4-week class sessions.

Dedicated Professors

Our professors are a mix of on-campus professors and school librarians, giving you instructors with a wide range of practical and professional experience!

Small Class Sizes

No great big classes or impersonal lecture halls! We deliberately keep our class sizes small, so you can get to know your classmates and your professors.
