We are the only department in the UK with programmes in library and information studies, information science, archives and records management, publishing, and digital humanities. As well as topics within these specific areas, we can offer unparalleled opportunities for cross-domain research, for example in user studies and usability, metadata, the management of electronic resources, information governance, data science and semantic technologies for the humanities.

UCL Information Studies is an international centre for knowledge creation and transfer in the fields of librarianship, archives and record management, publishing, information science and digital humanities and the department brings together academics and practitioners in these fields. Our research aims to develop the understanding and insight needed to shape the emerging information environment, while elucidating and building on the historical developments that have created it. We are the country's largest department of Information Studies located within one of the world's top ten universities and our teaching is built upon an international research reputation.
