SILS is a leading information school rooted in the values of library science: universal access, collaboration, intellectual freedom, self-directed learning, and organization. Information is our focus and our passion.
UNC SILS educates innovative and responsible thinkers who will lead the information professions; discovers principles and impacts of information; creates systems, techniques, and policies to advance information processes and services; and advances information creation, access, use, management, and stewardship to improve the quality of life for diverse local, national, and global communities.
One of the nation’s top-ranked information schools, the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Information and Library Science (SILS) offers both undergraduate and graduate programs.
We study and value a diverse array of information theories and practices, with particular emphasis on how information is created, shared, managed, and how it affects the human condition. Information is pervasive and we consider it in a variety of contexts that include libraries and archives; institutions of government and commerce; industries such as health, energy, and finance; and basic research at the intersections of knowledge, technology, and culture. Our aim is to educate leaders who will shape the future of information in all contexts and to investigate and develop information theories and practices that lead the world to higher levels of prosperity, equity, and understanding.
