School of Information Studies
At the McGill School of Information Studies (SIS) we seek to find better ways to organize, access, disseminate, use, and preserve information and recorded knowledge.
The school educates information professionals and scholars who have influence on the management and design of information resources, services, and systems. We offer the following academic and professional programs: a Master of Information Studies with areas of specialization in Library Studies, Knowledge Management, Information and Communication Technology, and Archival Studies/Records Management; a PhD in Information Studies; and several Graduate Certificates.
Our professional programs, including our master's programs, have been continuously accredited since 1927 by the American Library Association (ALA), an internationally recognized body which assures quality, innovation, and value in Library and Information Studies education.
Our interdisciplinary research centers around the broad domain of human-information interaction, with projects in the areas of human-computer interaction, information behavior & services, and information & knowledge management. As well, the school is home to three research labs: the Accessible Computing Technology (ACT) Research Group Lab, the Data Mining & Security (DMaS) Lab, and the Multimodal Interaction Lab (MIL).
