Bachelor of Library and Information Science (4 years)

Bachelor of Library and Information Science (4 years)

Offered by the College of Education 

Description

Bachelor of Library and Information Science (BLIS) is a four-year program that prepares students in the development, deployment, and management of information resources in print, non-print, electronic, and digital formats. The program trains students to apply information technology to basic library operations and functions; to systematically organize, conserve, and preserve information objects, historical and cultural documents, and other intellectual properties; and to harness bibliographical and online tools to support teaching, research and other services. The program culminates with a one-year practicum/on-the-job training (OJT) at the University of Santo Tomas Miguel de Benavides Library and in libraries and information centers both in public and private sectors outside the University.
