Not Observed Insufficient Moderate Use Meets Criterion Completely
The School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) does not have a separate on campus and online program. We offer our degrees delivered completely online.
The Masters in Library and Information Science program (MLIS) is accredited by the American Library Association (ALA). This is a national accrediting body and between accreditation visits we have to supply annual statistics and biennial narrative reports addressing the standards.
The standards must be followed regardless of the delivery format. American Library Association: Committee on Accreditation: Standards
