Hello Everyone,

I have an IM Masters, but have been thinking about pursuing an additional
LIS from an ALA accredited school.  For those of you who feel comfortable
sharing, I hope to get some input from you
Since there are 20 states that have no ALA accredited program - I am
wondering how many of you got your education/degree/certification at an ALA
accredited university?
Then for those who did not -
Was an ALA accredited school available?
To your knowledge, have you been disqualified for a position because ALA
accreditation was a requirement?
and finally, assuming there was no ALA accredited school available  - if
there had been a choice of pursuing an ALA accredited degree as opposed to
the non-accredited degree, which would you have chosen?

I am not implying that one degree is in ANY WAY better or worse.  My
decision to look into this is a personal issue.

Thank you for sharing your info and opinions.
