Digital Resource Development Initiative


Resources developed by UCLA Information Studies Faculty and Students

The UCLA Ed&IS Department of Information Studies is a powerhouse in an increasingly vital field. As a leading architect of the agenda for how information is disseminated and deployed in the 21st century, we believe that open and frictionless access enables incredible outcomes and creates a better and more equitable world. The Department is home to UCLA’s iSchool. The international iSchool community is dedicated to advancing the information fields. iSchools promote an interdisciplinary approach to understanding the opportunities and challenges of information management, with a core commitment to concepts like universal access and user-centered organization of information.
