About Library Science, MSc - at City, University of London

City's MSc/MA Library Science aims to provide you with a deep understanding of collection-orientated institutions and services, and their relevance and impact within different layers of society.

The course examines the processes of information organisation, communication, access and provision, in order to understand how these activities can be designed and implemented to work towards individual development, organisational goals, and to support a fair and prosperous society.

The course considers the contemporary questions of library infrastructures and services, from both historical and philosophical perspectives. Our focus is divided equally between theory and its application to practice. You will benefit from a high level of engagement with practitioners, and we are pleased to welcome many leaders in the profession as guest speakers throughout the course.

Content covers fundamental concepts associated with libraries and library services, including: resources, collections, management, governance, publishing and information literacy. There is an emphasis on the use of new and emergent technologies; methods of investigation and analysis; ethical, legal and socio-political implications, and policy formulation.
