Managing Information Access and Use in the Digital World
You won’t have to look far to see evidence of how the Information Age is turning into a Digital World, changing the way we think, do business, and learn. E-commerce, the Cloud, tablets as educational tools, virtual universities—these are some of the ways we are touched daily by a new and ever-changing world of information.
Library and Information Science graduates at the IU School of Informatics and Computing at IUPUI learn to manage these changes in ways that positively affect others. There is a great need for educating children and adults in the effective use of new media resources, as well as for developing literacy programs and collaborations that meet information literacy standards. Linking information from many sources for efficiency and ease of use is a vital necessity for educational, medical, legal, and governmental organizations.
Our alumni network is among the most active in the Midwest. Library and Information Science graduates take meaningful and influential positions, where they provide the best practices and resources in the field. Our alumni connect regularly to share these best practices at events like the Indiana Library Federation meeting.
