So you want to study… information science

January 29, 2009

Dr Adrienne Muir, senior lecturer and postgraduate (taught) admissions tutor, was interviewed for a recent Guardian article on Masters courses in library and information science.  The article covered the content of LIS courses, the benefits of taking a taught postgraduate course, employment prospects, and funding opportunities.  Students from the University of Sheffield and the University of Aberystwyth also offered advice and their experiences to people wanting to enter the profession.

…..today’s information professional is also likely to be immersed in the virtual world of search engines, tags and all manner of web-based tools, working in a variety of settings. Competition to get into this exciting and expanding field is tough and a master’s can help you get a professional post.
