About Information Services
Masters degrees in Information Services consider the management and use of different information materials, ranging from data in digital databases to physical books and records in libraries and collections.
Degrees in this discipline can be quite theoretical, exploring new systems for efficient information storage and retrieval. Others have clear professional and vocational applications in areas such as public heritage and record-keeping, data security and legal compliance.
Courses can be taught or research Masters. Continuing Professional Development (CPD) qualifications are also available.
Most degrees in this discipline have quite obvious professional applications, but you may be surprised at how diverse these opportunities are.
The 21st century has seen a huge increase in the amount of information produced by individuals, governments and corporations. A modern librarian is therefore almost as likely to work with data in a digital repository as they are with physical books.
Meanwhile, growing professions for Information Services postgraduates include information security and data protection. A huge range of organisations gather data from their clients or users and this information needs to be stored and used safely (and legally).
