I’ve been reflecting lately on how I chose to enroll in my current LIS program. Making this decision was a really big challenge for me, but there were a few resources that made it easier. For one, the ARLIS/NA document Library Schools in Canada and the United States was a good starting point. For more current information on the LIS programs listed in document I’ve recently discovered Peterson’s search guide to be very useful.
Beyond print and online searches I did a lot of informational interviewing – I think that the professionals who shared their time and perspective with me were the most helpful resource of all.
What are other useful resources that prospective students should investigate before making their decisions?
