One blogger lifts up the opportunities for college students to benefit from both the fields of library science and information studies, and archives and special collections. These classes, which are often cross-listed with classes in English and history departments, proliferate in library and information schools, but they have not resulted in many joint degrees that coordinate studies in the humanities with the information fields.

This interesting information was found in the blog post titled, “Joint Degrees in Library and Information Science and English, History, and Arts.” This post took a look at the state of the field in the United States and Canada in terms of joint degrees offered for library and information science and humanities fields, specifically art, English, and history.
