Library and Information Science (LIS) has developed a distinctive program to serve the rapidly changing needs of future librarians, archivists and information professionals in the Rocky Mountain region. It was also the first program to be accredited by the ALA in the past twenty years.
As a small, face-to-face program, we get to know our students very well and connect them to the highly regarded professional network in the region (and beyond). Practitioners speak highly of our students and are eager to have DU MLIS students as interns and employees.
InContext Learning Experiences
Examples of InContext learning experiences our students have had include:
- Intern as an archivist at the National Baseball Hall of Fame
- Archive interstate projects for the Colorado Department of Transportation
- Create a digital library about sensory learning
- Develop and launch a usability study for academic libraries
