Library and Information Science
Founded in 1965, the Library and Information Science (LIS) program prepares professionals for work in libraries, archives, and other types of information-handling agencies. The LIS program is aware of the opportunities and responsibilities inherent in its Pacific setting and the unique cultural amalgam of Hawai‘i. Our major goals are to:
- Furnish students with the knowledge, skills, and attitudes that are basic to professional competence and career-long professional growth in the field of library and information services;
- Expand the knowledge base of the profession through research; and
- Share its resources by extending services to the UH and its academic units and to the people of Hawai‘i and beyond.
