The UCL Department of Information Studies is celebrating 100 years since our foundation as the first British School of Librarianship! Throughout the decades, we have offered professionally grounded education that brings together a unique portfolio of programmes in library and information studies, information science, archives and records management, publishing and digital humanities.
Our most recent focus has been the development of an MA and PhD programme that offer the opportunity to specialise in information literacy. We are one of the few British library schools to offer a standalone information literacy module, and we offer information literacy focused placements and professional development events in conjunction with local practitioners. The programme also offers the opportunity to study with research staff who are world leaders in the field of information literacy research; Professor Annemaree Lloyd has irrevocably shaped the state of workplace, health and community information literacy scholarship while Dr Alison Hicks and Dr Charles Inskip continue to make vital contributions to the teaching and practice of information literacy in academic settings as well as other contexts. We welcome enquiries from students looking to build and extend their engagement with information literacy research and practice!

At Talis we are focused on helping Higher Education institutions reach their strategic goals around Teaching & Learning, data and learner and learning analytics, student experience and provision of resources. We work with over 100 institutions globally, including x% of the UK’s universities. We provide two solutions, Talis Aspire; an online resource list solution which closes the gap between the library, academics and students to improve workflow efficiencies around acquisitions and copyright compliance for the library, whilst providing an improved interface for students and academics which seamlessly integrates with your Learning Management System and Virtual Learning Environment. Talis Elevate is a powerful universal content player that enables collaboration, engagement and insight into resources by allowing students to collaborate and engage directly with any type of resource, whilst allowing academics to better understand how their students learn and interact with provided content.
