Welcome to The DLIS


Welcome to the Department of Library and Information Studies, the only library school established primarily for educating and developing library and information professionals in the English-speaking Caribbean. The spread of our graduates across the region and globally, in careers such as librarians, archivists, heads of library systems, system designers, and information specialists is surpassed only by the range of our programmes and courses.
