Partnerships: USC Libraries and USC Marshall School of Business to Offer New Online Master’s in Library Science

From a USC Announcement:

To meet the demands of the complex, rapidly changing leadership landscape faced by today’s librarians, USC has announced a new online master’s degree of management in library and information science (MMLIS) to launch in May.

Developed by the USC Libraries in partnership with the USC Marshall School of Business, the MMLIS is one of the first programs in librarianship in the United States to be affiliated with a major business school.

“We have worked closely with our partners at USC Marshall to build a unique program, one that addresses the challenges that face our profession now and that will grow only more urgent and complex for libraries, librarians and library leaders,” said Catherine Quinlan, dean of the USC Libraries.


Ken Haycock, professor emeritus and former director of the San Jose State School of Library and Information Science, has been named director of graduate programs in library and information management.
