Any student who wishes to undertake a course of directed reading and/or research must prepare a proposal and have it approved by the LIS faculty member who will direct the study and the Chair of the Library and Information Science Program prior to registration.

LIS 699 is an individualized program of directed reading and/or research beyond the scope of regularly titled courses.

Three copies of the proposal will be submitted. The original will be filed in the student’s folder; one copy will be retained by the faculty member; and the other copy will be returned to the student.

The proposal is a contract between the student and the instructor for a minimum of sixty (60) hours of study and/or research for each semester hour of credit.
