A quick review of our faculty pages shows a wide range of research interests and expertise. These strengths combined have enabled the UNC School of Information and Library Science (SILS) to become a global leader in four specific areas:

  • Digital Curation
  • Health Informatics
  • Information Interaction and Search Systems
  • Librarianship for the 21st Century

Projects are funded by a variety of sources including external agencies such as the Institute for Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health (NIH), National Library of Medicine (NLM), and the Andrew Mellon Foundation, to name a few.

Colleagues from other departments and organizations, as well as SILS students, work collaboratively with faculty on their research. The results are shared through published works, conference presentations and proceedings, special speaking engagements, symposia and other events.
