The Master of Library Science (M.L.S.) program prepares students to become reflective practitioners who connect people and communities with information. Upon completion of the M.L.S. program, graduates are prepared to:
Approach Professional Issues with Understanding
Assist and Educate Users
Develop and Manage Collections of Information Resources
Manage and Lead Libraries and Other Information Organizations
Represent and Organize Information Resources
Use Research Effectively
Deploy Information Technologies in Effective and Innovative Ways
Students document their achievement of the program outcomes by means of an electronic portfolio (ePort). Starting in the fall of 2016, students will access their portfolios through the Taskstream portal. Completion of the ePort is required before the degree is conferred.
All students achieve program goals. This is documented through student transcripts. All students must succeed in the core courses which map to program outcomes.
All students create an electronic portfolio, which contains evidence of work that demonstrates mastery of program goals and ALA competencies. Prior to fall 2016 graduates, the ePorts were housed in Oncourse and assessed holistically, via faculty, and in summer of 2015, by community professionals. Beginning with a pilot in fall of 2016, ePorts are managed via Taskstream.
Placement Survey results is not available at this time. Please contact Andrea Copeland for more information.
