Introduction and Characteristics
The Department of Library & Information Science is a field to make students use diverse information timely in modern information age and is fostering experts who produce, organize, manage and provide the information of all necessary fields and academic information. Notably, more efficient education and study are practiced through computer labs for information system and study for the field of information science. Because the department is closely related to history, linguistics, sociology, psychology, business administration, education, computer science and other adjacent academic fields, after graduation students will be given to wide opportunities to work for each adjacent field as well as a librarian.
The main objective of our department is to cultivate creative librarians and information professionals required by the information society. The policy of our department to achieve this goal is as follows. Enhance the educational effect by effectively utilizing the training equipment. Establish and operate a curriculum review committee with full-time professors, and if necessary, involve student representatives in this committee. Enhance educational performances by expanding opportunities for internship and field trips to the library information system.
Promote the field-oriented education through further activating the Myongji University Library and Information Society (Myungmunyeon) and strengthening the bonds with the students. Through the interview opportunities between professors and students, seek substance for student’s college life. In addition, students who complete a single major and graduate can acquire a librarian's teacher certificate only after completing level 2 certificate and teacher's degree courses. They are given the opportunity to find jobs in various libraries and library information management institutions where they can show their competences as the librarian and the information profession.
Students who complete and graduate from dual majors are given the opportunity to advance into various fields based on their individual interests and efforts. However, regardless of single or dual majors, it is important to keep in mind that the basic requirements for our students are excellent foreign language skills in addition to the common sense, culture, and personality. To this end, our students should be motivated and lead progressive lives.
Fundamental function of library & information system is to collect, process, search and provide library & information and the ultimate goal of this department is to foster professionals who can show their abilities for this function effectively. In order to realize it, professors and students are actively coping with social environment as well as informational environment and are voluntarily devoting themselves to education, study, social voluntary work and character training. Therefore, it aims eventually to creatively contribute to the development of Korean information culture, fulfillment of a welfare society and development of human culture.
