Information networks play an increasingly vital role in the circulation and
use of knowledge and information, to which traditional books, materials,
and academic literature have made a massive contribution. The importance of
information in multimedia form continues to grow. While information
networks have become similar to a huge library, we should develop new
library functions that allow us to manage and utilize information
resources. In response to this need, we conduct interdisciplinary research
on information and media studies.

The University of Tsukuba, a national research university, offers an
academic and international environment for students. The Graduate School of
Library, Information and Media Studies (GSLIMS) provides an
interdisciplinary environment for the study of the library, information and
media sciences. GSLIMS is a member of iSchools, a global consortium of
research-oriented information schools, and is also a member of CiSAP, a
consortium of information schools in the Asia-Pacific area.
