MSLIS Advising Handbook

For those advising students in the MSLIS and the CAS/DL programs.

The goal of this document is to explain the course sequence and the role different courses play in the MSLIS and CAS/DL curricula. In addition, basic assumptions about scheduling and layouts for advising students are also presented.

Note: This document is designed to accompany the MSLIS program handbook. In case of conflict between these two documents, the handbook has precedence. Due to the nature of a wiki, this document is not considered to be the final word; it is suggested that students confirm decisions with an advisor.

– Scott Nicholson, MSLIS Program Director
