The mission of the Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) Program is to provide a quality publicly supported education for generalists and specialists in the library and information science fields. Its primary focus is to educate librarians for academic, public, and special libraries in Georgia. The goal of Valdosta State University's Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) program is to prepare professionals who will exercise leadership in planning, promoting, implementing, and administering the preservation, organization, dissemination, and effective use of society's recorded information. Recipients of the MLIS degree will acquire a broad range of skills and knowledge in organizing and retrieving information, information management, information services, information resources, and information systems.
