Get Your Local Library Degree
March 21, 2008 § 1 Comment
Hey, I didn’t realize that you can get a degree in local librarianship… cool! The School of Information at Michigan and the iSchool at Illinois both offer Master of Science degrees that specialize in Community Informatics. From Illinois:
The CI program welcomes applications from students who are interested in understanding and creating working relationships between communities and their technologies, working collaboratively with community members to address their information needs, promoting the needs of underserved groups in society, and pursuing a career that gives the opportunity to contribute to their communities.
This is great although I’m not a fan of the phrase “community informatics,” but that’s grist for another blog post’s mill… You can even take some of the local librarianship classes non-locally… would that be irony? Guess I don’t know it when I see it.
