About SSLIS

The Swedish School of Library an Information Science (SSLIS) is one of a kind in Sweden. Within Library and Information Science, our research, programmes and courses are the most extensive in the country, and are being developed in close interaction with the global society around us.

The idea behind our work is that work practices and scientific approaches are two interwoven perspectives which enrich each other, just as research and education do.

Claes Lennartsson, Director at the Swedish School of Library of Information Science

The challenges for the library and information science programs are tangible and exciting. Cross-border cooperation provides new opportunities to develop the relevance of the profession.

Students, teachers and researchers who come to us will broaden their horizons, create new contacts and contribute to developing an environment which is already outstanding. SSLIS is a place where trade, industry and society meet in cross-boundary cooperation. As a student here, you will have opportunities to develop an international perspective through overseas studies as well as through contact with teachers, researchers, projects and other students with international backgrounds and connections.
