All students are required to have certain computer competencies before entering the program. LIS coursework will not provide remedial training. All incoming students will have to complete training modules in their first semester of study to ensure they meet all competencies. Instructors will assume that you have the following skills on the first day of class.
Because numerous courses in the program require additional technical competencies, students may wish to augment their basic proficiencies after entering the MS in Information and Library Science program by taking advantage of a variety of workshops on campus. Workshops are offered through the UB Information Technologies (IT) department, the Informatics Lab, and the UB libraries.
