Save LSU's SLIS Program
LSU Board of Supervisors
More Info at:
On May 25, 2010, the chancellor of Louisiana State University (LSU) released a statement announcing his recommendation for the closure of and/or elimination of funding for 17 programs and centers at LSU, including the School of Library and Information Science, the ONLY master's degree program to be listed among the 17 up for closure. LSU's School of Library and Information Science is the only school of its kind in Louisiana and graduates at least 70 highly qualified librarians on a yearly basis.
We, the undersigned, oppose the closure of the School of Library and Information Science at Louisiana State University.
