In order to receive your Master of Science degree in Library and Information Science, you are required to submit an e-Portfolio that serves as an end of program assessment. The e-Portfolio will also help you showcase your work to future potential employers. It includes an introduction, resume, vision statement, and work samples with reflections that document proficiency in the program’s eight goals:
- Develop an understanding of the foundations of the profession;
- Develop an understanding of information resources;
- Demonstrate ability to organize recorded knowledge and information;
- Apply technological knowledge and skills to practice;
- Apply reference and user services;
- Master research methods;
- Experience continuing education and lifelong learning; and,
- Apply key concepts of administration and management.
Refer to our Goals and Outcomes for a complete overview.
You must submit your e-Portfolio for evaluation in either your last semester of coursework or the semester immediately following. We encourage you to build your e-Portfolio throughout your program of study. Digication is the current platform used to create e-Portfolios.
