As the country’s newest ALA-accredited program, the VSU MLIS program offers those joining the faculty an opportunity to make a difference in the quality of library services in Georgia and beyond. VSU was an early adopter of distance education among Georgia universities, and the MLIS faculty are early adopters of new teaching technologies on our campus.
