Log in

     The UNC School of Information and Library Science (SILS), also known as the iSchool at Carolina, offers undergraduate, master's, and doctoral degrees. As of spring 2020, we had approximately 226 undergraduate students majoring in information science or minoring in information systems and 241 graduate students enrolled. Our faculty have a wide range of interests and expertise, but their combined research and outreach have enabled SILS to become a global leader in four specific areas: digital curation, health informatics, information interaction, and librarianship for the 21st century.
