About us

At the heart of the USF iSchool is a shared focus on humans as central to information systems, services, and technology, and on the critical role of understanding how people interact with information in myriad forms. Our students serve communities throughout the state, the nation, and the world in libraries, government agencies, and a host of other information centers and contexts. Our faculty explore a host of research and scholarly issues ranging from the role of the library in the public sphere, to health informatics, to the organization of knowledge and archiving. Moreover, we are committed to being engaged with our communities and other professions, and we value interdisciplinary research that can inform best-practice as well as contribute to the knowledge of our broad discipline.
