New Revised Admissions Requirements!
After a review of admissions requirements of all ALA Accredited LIS master's programs in the U.S., OU SLIS has revised our requirements. Please visit our Admissions page for more information and to apply!

Now Easier to Schedule Online Program!
In response to student needs for a more accessible online program, the OU SLIS master's core courses will now all be available online each fall and spring term. Elective courses will continue to be offered in a mixture of online, on-campus, and hybrid formats.



OU SLIS is very proud of our master's student Francesco Gerali, who also holds a Ph.D. in History of Science from the University of Bari (Italy). Dr. Gerali has been invited to be a visiting scholar at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales at the University of Paris for the month of November 2016, where he will be giving lectures. While in Europe he will also deliver two lectures in Granada, Spain for the University of Granada's Department of Theory and Economic History's annual Teacher's Conference. Congratulations, Dr. Gerali, on your scholarly invitations.


Congratulations to Bachelor of Information Studies student Rebekah Russell for being chosen to be a McNair Scholar! This is a federal program "by the U.S. Department of Education... designed to prepare undergraduate students for doctoral studies through involvement in research and other scholarly activities."
