Question by ronipooh_09: What colleges in West Virginia offer Library Scienes?
I have a PROMISE scholarship, which pays for all tutition but it only applies at West Virginia schools. I want to be a librarian. So I’m wondering what WV colleges offer my degree? Thanks in advance.
Answer by eri Library science is a masters degree, not an undergraduate degree – you need a 4-year college degree to apply to an MLS program. But you can apply with a major in anything – English, history, art, even science. So find a school in WV that you like, get your 4-year degree in something that interests you, and then apply for library school. Here’s a list of masters programs.
Stories exploring life in “America’s most wired town”, Blacksburg, Virginia, have appeared in major publications internationally. Articles in Esquire, USA Weekend, and Reader’s Digest have captured the public’s interest, and now there’s a revealing inside look at the five-year evolution of the Blacksburg Electronic Village — the ground-breaking venture that has linked the citizens of Blacksburg, Virginia to each other and to the rest of the world, based on 100% Internet technology. The book explains exactly how the Blacksburg Community Network has developed, from its original concept in 1991 to how it is managed today. It addresses the social, economic, technical, and educational impact of living in a “connected town,” based on community-wide surveys, focus groups, and data logging efforts. It shows the services currently offered and how they are used by community members, and discusses what has and hasn’t worked — and why. In addition, the book describes the essential components of a community network, and offers valuable “how to” advice on designing and developing an electronic community.
