What You Can Do With an MLIS

Information professionals are in demand in every sector of our society — from local schools and public libraries to government offices and major corporations. As we are inundated with information every day, someone needs to know how to root out what's relevant, important and accurate — and how to organize and present it in a way that makes sense.

That's where YOU come in.

The School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) at Kent State University has been creating leaders in the profession for more than 60 years. 

Our graduates are qualified to fill every conceivable role on the information spectrum — as library directors, knowledge managers, information architects, children's librarians, competitive research strategists, law librarians, health informatics experts, digital preservationists, usability analysts, museum collection specialists, network consultants and more — and even some roles that haven't been created yet.

Students graduating from college today will change careers —not just jobs — numerous times over the course of their working lives.
