Information Studies Department

UCLA’s Department of Information Studies is widely regarded as one of the finest in the nation. Founded in 1958 as the School of Library Services, Information Studies today draws upon almost 50 years of excellence, leadership and vision, as well as the rich resources of the UCLA campus and Southern California.

Our internationally respected and highly published faculty members are conducting research at the forefront of their fields in areas such as information and media literacy, digital preservation, electronic recordkeeping, the use of digital libraries in learning, and the development of information services and systems for ethnic and other marginalized communities.

An outstanding track record of research funding from both national and international funding organizations provides opportunities for students to participate with faculty and other collaborators in research and publication activities. An unparalleled internship program comprising over 300 library, museum, archives, corporate, and other settings across Southern California extends classroom learning and supports the development of practical experience and applied knowledge for professional students.
