For more than 100 years, Pitt has been educating the professionals who will lead us through the information age: librarians, information and knowledge managers, archivists, and digital-content managers. As the nature and form of information evolves and becomes more complex with each passing year, the education of its managers becomes increasingly vital.

Our Department of Information Culture and Data Stewardship offers an array of graduate degree programs and pathways designed to prepare students for careers in this critical profession. We offer one of the most recognized programs in the nation—our Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) degree is accredited by the American Library Association (ALA).
