Subject: Master of Library Science

Emporia State University is recruiting new students for Master of
Library Science program in Salt Lake City - EMPORIA, KS

The School of Library and Information Management (SLIM), at Emporia
State University, Emporia, Kansas, is accepting applications for
admission to its Master of Library Science degree program offered in
Salt Lake City with classes starting in the spring semester of 2008.
The Master of Library Science (MLS) is the qualifying degree for
professional positions in public, academic, and corporate libraries and
information centers.  Emporia State University is accredited by the
American Library Association and is the oldest operating library school
in the western half of the country.  The program operates in Utah by
invitation of the State Library Division of the Utah Department of
Community and Economic Development.

The program, which first started offering classes in Salt Lake City in
1996, uses a combination of weekend and online classes to make it more
accessible to adult learners with employment and family commitments.
The program requires forty-two semester credit hours for graduation and
the typical student will graduate in less than three years.  Students
are in class about fourteen weekends during the first year and then are
able to customize their degree plan with a great deal of flexibility.
Faculty travel from Kansas to Salt Lake City to teach courses and a
local Director provides advising services for students.
The Kansas school began offering the MLS degree via distance education
in 1987 in states where the degree is not offered by local colleges and
universities and always at the invitation of the state library
institution.  The program is currently offered in Utah, Colorado, and
Oregon.  More than 1,000 students have earned their Master of Library
Science degree from SLIM without ever needing to attend classes on the
Kansas campus.  Ninety-two students have graduated from the MLS program
in Utah and a fourth group of students will graduate in May 2008.

For more information and an application packet, contact Adriane Juarez,
Director of the SLIM-Utah MLS program, by phone at 877-255-2521,
toll-free, or
801-661-0457 in Salt Lake City or by email at ajuarez@emporia.edu.

Thanks, Donna
