About Us

In 2015, the Library and Information Science Program will celebrate 50 years of humble excellence in teaching, research and service.  We have graduated over 1600 information professionals working in Hawaii and throughout the world, and we celebrate their achievements as well.

Our 1997 merger with the Department of Information and Computer Sciences (ICS) signaled a new era for the Program. Faculty, staff and students envision this dynamic partnership as an opportunity to pool and strengthen human and physical resources, to expand student learning options, and to explore avenues for cooperation with agencies and corporations in Hawaii and abroad. We believe that the LIS Program, as part of the ICS Department, is strategically positioned for faculty and students to engage in innovative research and entrepreneurial ventures with Computer Science colleagues. The merger also holds exciting promise for new programs integrating skills in information and computer sciences that will allow our graduates to compete successfully in the evolving job marketplace.
