UCD School of Information and Communication Studies

Information plays a key role in business, government, society and life. Knowing how to create, manage, share, find and use digital information is more relevant than ever before. The School is the only academic institution in Ireland to provide undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes leading to research and professionally accredited qualifications in Information and Library Studies.

It is an active member of the iSchools consortium – a global collection of Information Schools dedicated to advancing the information field and sharing a fundamental interest in the relationships between information, people, and technology. Research investigates how information is created, organised, searched, and shared within and across communities, organisations, and society, as well as in everyday life. It also examines the impact of new technologies (including social media) on the lives of individuals, communities and society.
