ALA Committee on Accreditation seeks comment

From a list:
The ALA Committee on Accreditation (COA) invites comment via blog from you and your members and constituents on the Standards for Accreditation of Master's Programs in Library and Information Studies (2008) and in particular on the recommendations of the Library Education Task Force in their final report issued January 13, 2009 to the ALA Executive Board for referral to COA.

COA works in deliberate systematic five-year cycles, collecting and analyzing comment and issuing draft revisions as part of its charge "to develop and formulate standards of education for library and information studies for the approval of Council" (ALA Handbook of Organization). The Committee chose a moderated blog for comment collection in order to provide an open and ongoing forum for all stakeholders in the accreditation process.
