If you’re receiving this publication, you already know at least a litt•le bit about the school. But we think you’ll learn a few things on these pages. You can also visit our School website for updates:

  • About the significant research our faculty are doing – making a global impact and “transforming the global information environment,” as our mission states;
  • How our students are engaged in hands-on learning opportunities that complement the coursework in our completely online degree programs (Master of Library and Information Science and Master of Science in Information Architecture and Knowledge Management);
  • How our alumni succeed in applying what they learned in SLIS to make their own marks on the profession;
  • And about some of the important programs launched by our top-10 ranked youth services area.

What you’ll discover, too, is that Kent State SLIS offers the perfect blend of 21st-century library practice and information technology, with programs in innovative fields such as user experience design, health informatics and museum studies.

We hope you enjoy this report. We look forward to hearing from you.
