Library and information science


Library and information science or LIS is carried out through compulsory electives. It is the common knowledge about information sources, their selection and usage. Students assimilate this knowledge and  they are able to independently use it even after finishing secondary education. The programme of LIS entails the development of all literacies, especially the information literacy as the means of identifying information needs, gaining, understanding, evaluationg and using information from different sources. Information literacy is becoming important in the lives of an individual and in the lives of social groups. It is for this purpose that we put emphasis on how to use library materials, information sources and how to develop the competence for independent learning. We also show students how to actively use their free time, also by reading fiction or non-fiction. We want to care for their personal growth.
