Accreditation

The American Library Association accredits master’s programs in Library and Information Science in North America. Accreditation ensures quality instruction for future information professionals. Employers typically require that professionals graduate from an ALA-Accredited institution.

The Master of Library and Information Science (MLISc) Degree Program was first accredited by the American Library Association (ALA) in 1967 and was re-accredited under new standards in 1974, 1980, 1986, 1994, 2000, and 2009. A key step in the accreditation process is the report written by the Library and Information Science Program and submitted to the ALA Committee on Accreditation. Each report is a snapshot of the program’s goals, objectives, and strategic planning.
