A new initiative at the School of Information Studies at Syracuse University offers an enriched graduate education experience to students who want to become leaders in librarianship and to develop skills that are applicable to a wide range of 21st-century careers that are redefining what it means to be a librarian.
“The Expect More Scholarship program is designed to provide promising students with all the graduate education experiences that will lead directly to career success,” said Jeff Stanton, Interim Dean at the iSchool.
The program offers one-on-one pairing of students with iSchool library faculty, experts who are some of the profession’s most compelling and innovative educators; two years of applied, pertinent work/research experience; industry networking and professional development opportunities; and significant scholarship and financial support.
A select group of students in the entering class of Summer/Fall 2015 Master’s in Library and Information Science degree program will become the inaugural Expect More Library Scholars.
This program is designed “to provide students with the opportunity to work with expert library educators who are leading and shaping innovations that are refocusing libraries – and librarians – in the 21st century,” said R. David Lankes, Professor and Dean’s Scholar for New Librarianship at the iSchool, and one of the library profession’s leading thinkers, noted speakers, and innovative voices in the field today.
