The Department of Library and Information Science holds one formal orientation program every year, in the fall, for all students who start in spring, summer, and fall. All students are enrolled in the Student Blackboard site and may access the orientation slides and videos at any time. For students in the online program, a separate online orientation is available.

Orientation covers information for which all incoming students are held responsible for knowing.
