The minor in information studies and technology will complement majors in many fields, including liberal arts and sciences, engineering, applied life sciences, commerce, business administration, education and human ecology. Students electing the minor will learn about the impact of information and information technology on society, individuals, and organizations. They will acquire information and technology literacy skills enabling them to know how and where to find information, how to use it strategically, and how to design information containers and access systems in a variety of settings. Students will also learn how policies governing access and control of information resources are set and how policies affect organizations, individuals and society as a whole. Other aspects of information and information use that will be addressed in the minor include, but are not limited to, the ethical use of information; intellectual property rights; plagiarism; privacy vs. the right to know; the equity of access to information.

Students interested in the minor are encouraged to contact the School of Information Sciences’ undergraduate faculty coordinator for guidance and more information.
