Excerpted from a UH news release by Gregg Takayama, 4/29/2009:
The University of Hawai’i at Mānoa’s graduate programs at the Shidler College of Business and in Library and Information Science are recognized among the best in the nation, in U.S. News and World Report’s “America’s Best Graduate Schools 2010.”
UH Mānoa’s Library and Information Science (LIS) program is ranked by its peers 29th out of 50 accredited programs nationwide. The program’s School Library Media Specialization is among the nation’s top 10 for the third year in a row, placing 8th nationally.
“We are deeply pleased to once again receive this recognition from our peers. This is terrific testimony to both the LIS faculty, who have built a rigorous and nationally respected graduate curriculum, and to the LIS students, who are emerging leaders in the school library field,” said Violet H. Harada, Professor and Associate Program Chair of the Library and Information Science Program.
Established in 1965, the LIS program promotes international scholarship and instruction, as well as fostering emerging information technologies. It is the only professional school that is part of UH Mānoa’s Department of Information and Computer Sciences.
