About

The School of Library and Information Sciences (SLIS) of North Carolina Central University (NCCU) provides graduate education in two major areas, library science and information studies.  

Overview

Founded in 1939, the vision of the School of Library and Information Sciences is to promote access to information for all humanity.  SLIS fulfills this vision through its mission to prepare professionals to become leaders who can advance the library and information sciences in a diverse and global society.

SLIS is accredited by the American Library Association Committee (ALA) on Accreditation and was reaccredited in January 2017.  With this accreditation, the SLIS program meets the Standards for Accreditation of Master’s Programs in Library and Information Studies.  Graduates from the SLIS program have highly successful careers in fields that center on the leveraging information and computer-based technologies to meet the needs of individuals, organizations, governments, and civil society.  For students pursuing professional careers in libraries, the ALA affirms that “graduating from an ALA-accredited program provides flexibility in the types of libraries and jobs you can apply for and enhances career mobility.  Many employers require an ALA-accredited master’s degree for professional level positions, and some states require an ALA-accredited degree to work as a professional librarian in public or school libraries.”
