From the American Library Association:
The second draft of the revised Standards for Accreditation of Master’s Programs in Library and Information Science, based on comment received since December 2013, is now available for review and final comment through October 24, 2014. Interested constituents are also invited to meet with the Committee on Accreditation to provide comment on the second draft revision at the ALA Annual Conference at 4:30pm on Sunday, June 29, 2014, in room N218 of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
In this second draft, a new approach to the Standards will be immediately apparent by the changes to the structure. The Introduction is now presented in sections that explain purposes and scope, terminology, approach, and the philosophy of program review. Systematic planning has been placed front and center as Standard I; and the final standard, VI: Assessment and Evaluation, provides for program-level synthesis. This draft is a culmination of efforts for more than five years involving research and gathering of input and feedback.
