SLIS/SoIC Merger July 2013: This summer SLIS and the School of Informatics merged to form the School of Informatics and Computing. Students admitted for Fall 2013 will be joining the Department of Information and Library Science (ILS) in the new school. There will be no change in the degrees SLIS/ILS offers. Admission and content requirements will remain the same; only the administrative structure will change. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
Sincerely, Rhonda Spencer, ILS Director of Admissions and Placement (
