    About the course

    Increasingly, library and information work requires high levels of IT knowledge and skills. The blurring of traditional boundaries between the professions has seen a growing need for those involved with the acquisition, dissemination and preservation of information in all its formats to have a broad understanding of the technical infrastructure supporting these roles, as well as an in-depth knowledge of how people access information and the tools necessary to ensure this is done as efficiently and effectively as possible.

    Graduates of this double degree will enter the workforce with high level skills and knowledge that will enable them to be at the forefront of the evolving library and information professions. In addition, with this background, the range of opportunities open to graduates is large, covering traditional areas such as university or public libraries, to research organisations, commercial firms, the cultural heritage sector and a range of IT related enterprises.
