About Doctor of Philosophy in Library, Archival and Information Studies at The University of British Columbia

Program Overview

The School of Library, Archival and Information Studies (SLAIS) is home to a community of researchers actively engaged in the investigation of questions of vital importance to society in the age of information. At the broadest level, we are concerned with the recorded artifacts of human experience: their creation, collection, organization, preservation, and use. Increasingly, these artifacts - books, documents, images, data, etc.- are created and/or preserved in digital formats that can be widely disseminated and used. Our collective work aims to ensure that this legacy of human experience, housed in both traditional and newer digital forms, is preserved, shared and explored, so that individuals and communities can continue to draw upon it to deepen their understanding of themselves and their communities and make new discoveries about our world. While our overarching research agenda is broad, research at SLAIS is clustered around three core areas of inquiry:

  • Management and preservation of digital records
  • Creation and use of cultural materials
  • Digital information systems and information interaction
