Library and Information Science (LIS) is the study of the creation, organization, dissemination, and use of information and the management of information resources and systems. It encompasses a wide range of subjects, including information organization, information access and retrieval, information technology, information policy, and the social and ethical implications of information and technology.

LIS professionals are responsible for managing and organizing information resources, such as books, journals, databases, and digital collections, and making them accessible to users. They also design, implement, and evaluate information systems, such as library catalogs, online databases, and digital libraries, to support information access and retrieval.

The goal of LIS is to enhance access to information and promote the effective use of information resources. This is critical in today's information-rich world, where information is central to education, research, business, and personal development. LIS professionals work in a variety of settings, including academic and research libraries, public libraries, archives, museums, and information-intensive organizations, such as government agencies and corporations. Career opportunities in LIS can be found in a wide range of areas, including library and information services, information management, information technology, and information policy.
