Our PhD programme is one of the largest in Europe in Library and Information Science. Through national and Nordic collaboration research courses have been developed and a research network, NORSLIS, has been established that includes both the Nordic and Baltic countries. We also cooperate with Swedish research schools in related disciplines.
SSLIS offers both research courses and seminars on a regular basis and we have at present seven professors and four docents. There are currently 20 active doctoral students registered at the school and working in varied research areas. Their studies are financed partly through doctoral posts and partly through research projects. So far, 28 PhD theses and six licentiate theses have been presented.
