National Preview Talk : Graduate Information Programs and Accreditation: Landscape Survey and Analysis

Our first presentation on Monday night was ASIS&T president Nancy Roderer presenting research by Samantha Becker of the University of Washington. The research was an assessment of the various information professional training programs.

This underlines both ASIS&T's emphasis on the broad nature of the information professions-- far more than just librarians and information scientists--, and also ties in with the ongoing ASIS&T effort to coordinate the certification and accreditation of information professional educational programs.
