The Univeristy of Denver is accepting applications to their Library and Information Science Program

The University of Denver’s Library and Information Science Program is currently accepting applications for the 2010 academic year. I would be grateful if you would distribute this information to students and alumni that may have an interest in pursuing this career path.

Thanks to a generous grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), the DU-LIS program now offers one of the most comprehensive law librarianship courses of study in the country. Designed to combine general and subject specific competencies with experiential opportunities, the Law Librarianship specialization prepares students for work in a variety of legal information settings. Including 5 law specific courses, the specialization is designed to align with the American Association of Law Libraries’ Competencies of Law Librarianship and American Library Association’s Core Competencies of Librarianship . Students completing the 58 quarter-hour Master’s in Library and Information Science program earn an MLIS degree with a specialization in law librarianship.

Located in the heart of Denver, the LIS program is designed for the working professional. Classes are offered once a week, with sessions generally from 4:00 p.m. to 6:25 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. to 9:25 p.m. Students in the LIS program come from a variety of backgrounds and bring with them a host of professional and personal experiences.

The priority deadline for the 2010 academic year is December 1, 2009.
