ALA Council Accepts 2015 Master's Program Standards for Accreditation
The Council of the American Library Association (ALA) approved the adoption of the 2015 Standards for Accreditation of Master’s Programs in Library and Information Studies. These revised standards emphasize planning, assessment, and evaluation to sustain quality, as well as require demonstration of how the evaluation results are applied. Implementation of these standards begins immediately for programs with comprehensive review visits in spring 2017 and later.
The review process took more than 5 years and included three drafts that were issued for comment. The 2015 standards were prepared by the ALA Committee on Accreditation and were endorsed by the ALA Committee on Education.
