ALA Extends Accreditation for Pratt/Arizona

By LJ Staff

The American Library Association’s (ALA) Committee on Accreditation (COA)
again has accredited the master’s program at Pratt Institute’s School of
Information and Library Science. Anne Woodsworth, dean of the program, announced
in late January that ALA’s Committee deemed “that [Pratt] met the current
standards and stated that the next review will be in 2008. That means we
received the maximum number of years before another review.” Additionally, COA
awarded full accreditation to the program at the School of Information Resources
and Library Science at the University of Arizona at least through 2005. In 1999
the COA denied
the Arizona program accreditation
