The Graduate Diploma in Information and Library Studies is accredited as a professional course that will equip you for a career in librarianship. It offers an opportunity for those who have completed an undergraduate degree in another discipline to develop an understanding of the theory and principles of librarianship.
You will also acquire skills which are vital in professional practice. Topics covered in the course include collection development, reference services, resource description, management of library and information services, and technologies for information services.
You must complete a practicum placement within a library or an information centre during a semester break as a requirement of the course. This practicum placement is organised by the Department of Information Studies.
