About this program

Master's Degree in Management and Direction of Libraries and Information Services

Several factors are required to devise an appropriate information system: in-depth knowledge of an organization and its environment; a team of professionals with the right skills to provide quality services; the establishment of assessment systems; the acquisition and management of the financial resources needed to set up the system; and the ability to establish a dissemination method to ensure that the services reach the right audience. To respond to new environments and requirements, professionals are needed who can network and lead multidisciplinary teams in collaborative, joint projects involving several organizations.

The main objective of the master's degree in Management and Direction of Libraries and Information Services is to provide comprehensive, specialized professional training for university graduates from all areas of knowledge, as well as managers of libraries and other information services.

The languages of instruction for this program are Spanish 30%; Catalan 70%.
