UB Library Science Program Scrutinized

Accreditation is in the balance for the MLS program at the University of Buffalo, one of the campuses of the State University of New York, according to this story from Bizjournals. The ALA’s “conditional” level of accreditation assigned to the program means the academic program is in “immediate noncompliance” with several areas of the association’s standards, said Karen O’Brien, director of the association’s accreditation office. A story from last Friday detailed UB’s plans for an “interdisciplinary” program in informatics.

UB officials have until Dec. 1 to submit a plan for the removal of the conditional accreditation.
