Our Vision: Where Information meets Innovation

Library and information professionals enable individuals and communities to meet their information needs now and into the future

Whatever it takes:

  • Services
  • Resources
  • Leadership
  • Technology

The Indiana University Library and Information Science (LIS) department in the School of Informatics and Computing (SOIC) at IUPUI is the place where:

  • Aspiring library and information science professionals gain current skills, a future orientation, and a professional mindset
  • Teaching is engaging, real, and innovative, primarily using non-place bound (online) methods
  • Faculty and student community service makes a difference for the profession, in Indiana and beyond
  • Research advances knowledge in how information and effective information management changes lives, particularly but not exclusively for public libraries, open access and changing academic information flows, digital heritage informatics and library administration.
