Spearhead an Academic Research Partnership

From labs to libraries, researchers at the UMD iSchool are combining principles of information science with cutting-edge technology to foster access to information, improve information interfaces, and expand how information is used. Our faculty and students tackle significant, real-world challenges from diverse perspectives such as communication, information retrieval, policy, computer science, education, archives, business, human factors, law, humanities, and more. Our discoveries empower, inspire, and connect individuals and communities. The UMD iSchool embraces interdisciplinary and collaborative research.
