The Library Department does not have a major/minor program per se; however, the department offers courses in computerized information retrieval to help researchers become more effective at using modern information technology to locate relevant material. Students who wish to make library science a professional career are encouraged to pursue a broad-based program of study with courses from many different fields. (Go to course descriptions and filter for courses with the prefix LIBS.)
