Library and Information Science Advising from Augustana College offers students a broad and demanding liberal arts education. Such an education develops the skills that will be needed for graduate study: critical thinking, reading and comprehending difficult material, writing and speaking clearly, and conducting thorough research using sources thoughtfully and effectively.


At Library and Information Science Advising from Augustana College strong computer skills are highly desirable when we think about most librarian positions; additional courses in Computer Science are recommended if student is interested in library systems management, digital initiatives or database construction. Students may also choose additional courses that will prepare them for a specific area of LIS. 

Tredway librarians can provide guidance in curriculum planning and the graduate admissions process. Pre-LIS students are welcome to consult them in addition to their major advisor(s). Students interested in becoming a Media Specialist (K-12) and seeking teacher certification should meet with an Education department advisor early in their academic career.


It is strongly recommended that students interested in library and information science seek employment in a library, either at Augustana's Thomas Tredway Library, at a public library in the Quad Cities, or a library in the student's hometown. If applying to work at the Thomas Tredway Library, students should indicate their interest in studying library and information science on their employment application(s) each term.
