The vast majority of library programs are MLIS (Master of Library and Information Studies) programs, and as such are completed after the completion of an undergraduate program in a related discipline, usually in literature or the humanities. Most library and information science programs focus on the written word, but there is the occasional program (such as Ryerson’s Photographic Preservation and Collections Management degree) that focuses on preservation of other media. UBC also offers the only Master of Archival Studies (MAS) program in Canada. For the most part, however, library school trains students in working with the needs of diverse groups of information users and teaches the most up-to-date methods of computer-based information handling. Many programs offer work-study or cooperative education programs. Graduates are not only able to choose, acquire, organize, store, retrieve and disseminate information resources, they are able to design and implement their own knowledge retrieval systems.
