SLIS is home to two specialized research centers, the Center for the Study of Information and Religion and the Center for the Study of Librarianship: 

Center for the Study of Information and Religion (CSIR)

CSIR was created in 2009 to facilitate research within the library and information science field that is focused on the various institutions and agents of religion and their effect on social knowledge through the use, dissemination, and diffusion of information.


Center for the Study of Librarianship

This unit of the School of Library and Information Science was constituted in 1966 to carry on and stimulate basic research in librarianship and to contribute in appropriate ways to the definition and solution of problems facing Ohio libraries.
