Library and Information Management PgCert / PgDip / MSc

Course Description

The course draws on the direct experience of leaders in the library and information world to provide up-to-date and relevant insight into the key issues facing information services as they relate to the wider learning community, the strategic goals of the parent institution and the promotion of lifelong learning in a knowledge-based society. The course also benefits from the active involvement of the University Library in the provision of learning resources and direct support to students. It provides an academic foundation for professional practice.

Key benefits

- Accredited by the Chartered Institute of Library and Information Professionals (CILIP) to assure students that programmes provide an excellent preparation for professional practice.

Course detail

- Description -

For new students entering the course in September 2016 the course will be provided fully online. There will be weekly classes, but these will take place in an ‘online classroom’ and that will be on a Wednesday evening. We will be using the software Blackboard Collaborate for this.

- Purpose -

The course is designed for library and information professionals in the public and private sectors, in schools, colleges or universities and in specialist libraries or information units.

- Teaching and assessment -

Students will need a PC / laptop, reliable internet access, a web cam, a headset with microphone and audio, and a quiet place from which to participate in the online class. In addition to the weekly online sessions, learning resources will be posted online and students will engage in regular online discussion and keep an online learning journal.

It is likely that we will offer some face-to-face opportunities, and while we will encourage people to attend these, they will not be compulsory.

Career options

The Postgraduate Diploma and MSc in Library and Information Management prepare individuals for professional library and information careers.
