The Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS) program at University of Illinois is designed to prepare students to be researchers and teachers in library and information science (LIS). Students' interests cover a wide range of topics, but each must complete a comprehensive examination that covers the breadth of the field of LIS. This article defines a reading list for this examination that provides a common grounding irrespective of the focus of students' individual interests in LIS, and a theoretical base that will prepare them to deal with issues in the future.
