The American Library Association (ALA) Committee on Accreditation has reaccredited Indiana University’s Master of Library Science (MLS) and Master of Information Science (MIS) degree programs through Spring 2019. IU’s programs have been continuously accredited by ALA since 1951.
Many alumni and colleagues helped support the school throughout the review for reaccreditation. Thank you for contributing to early planning meetings in Fall 2010, working on drafts of the self study, responding to the external reviewers’ survey, and meeting with the review panel during the site visit, and generally providing support and encouragement. Your comments and advice have contributed to a better understanding of our school and of the careers that lie ahead for future graduates.
The External Review Panel met with SLIS faculty, staff, and students on the Bloomington and Indianapolis campuses in March 2012. (The photo above was taken during that visit. Pictured left to right are: Clara Chu, Bertrum MacDonald, Nancy Roderer, Debora Shaw, Rene Erlandson, Joan Howland, and Michèle Cloonan.
