Students at the bachelor's and master's levels can pursue single or combined courses of study, while the doctoral program in Information Science is part of an interdisciplinary Humanities and Social Sciences curriculum. This program includes both full-time doctoral students funded by the national “young researcher scheme” and part-time students who work full time while pursuing their doctorates. Supported by the Slovenian Research Agency, the core research programme, “Modelling of Bibliographic Information Systems,” integrates diverse areas such as bibliographic information modelling, metadata research, information behaviour and use, user experience, reading habits, and gamification. Additionally, the department collaborats on Erasmus+ and bilateral projects, enhancing the research and international collaborations.
