Archive, Library and Information Science

The curriculum in Archive, Library and Information Science is meant to offer a wide theoretical and experimental knowledge on the disciplinary domain related to the various kind of documentary expressions starting from manuscripts, to printed books, and digital resources. Archivistic Sciences, Bibliography, Library and Information Science, all concur to study - each one from its own disciplinary point of view- the various moments from the creation to the publication, and then to the selection, the cataloguing and the classification, indexing and dissemination of 'documents'. The curricula for doctoral students are then chosen in order to offer an appropriate historical and epistemological education in the history of 'documents': ranging from the history of the main public and private institutions; to the social impact of the book commerce; and to the analysis of more specific topics as 'access' and 'implementation of new technologies'. A special interest will be devoted to the international dimension, and especially to European topics and problems: foreign professors are currently invited to give lectures, and may also be selected as 'tutor' or 'co-tutor' for the final written dissertation. Stages in archives, libraries and documentation centers, but also in publisher houses or research institutions (in Italy and in Europe), are expected to complete the curriculum of each doctoral student.
