Oh Hey Everybody!
I’m a lurker over at r/libraries (that’s on the Reddit, if you’re not a Reddit person). Recently I came across a highly useful resource created by u/allchickpeas. I asked them if I could share and they said yes.
So you know when people are trying to figure out which MLIS program to attend and you want to give them advice like, “whichever one is cheaper?” Wouldn’t it be great if you could look at program costs for all the accredited online schools, sorted cheapest to most expensive?
Or maybe you yourself are considering getting your MLIS and you have a number of criteria that include how many units you’re planning to take each semester and what you want to pick as your special area of study? Wouldn’t you find it super helpful if someone had already ferreted out all that information and put it together on a spreadsheet?
WELL, THIS IS THE HIGHLY USEFUL RESOURCE I WAS TALKING ABOUT. The incredibly generous and helpful u/allchickpeas has created a
Spreadsheet of Online MLIS Costs + Areas of Emphasis.
I am impressed by how clear and well-organized it is. I am sure it will be useful to many of us.
