Librarians and public historians contribute to our knowledge and understanding of the past.

The School of Information Studies cooperates with the Loyola University Graduate School of Arts and Sciences to offer a combined program leading to two degrees: Master of Library and Information Science and Master of Arts in Public History.

Dominican University's Master of Library and Information Science degree is the only American Library Association-accredited in the Chicago area. Public history uses the past to serve a variety of contemporary needs including the application of the skills and methods of history to the study, management, preservation and interpretation of historical records and artifacts.
