Library Careers

Choosing a library school

From the American Library Association:

"The American Library Association (ALA) accredits master’s programs in library and information studies across the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico. There are 63 ALA-accredited master's programs and three programs seeking initial accreditation."

The majority of librarian positions require a minimum of a Master's in Library and Information Studies from an ALA-accredited program.
