New York University Graduate School of Arts and Sciences
Laura Bush 21st Century Librarian Program
Master’s Level Programs
New York University’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, in collaboration with Long Island University’s Palmer School of Library and Information Science, will address the need for academic librarians with scholarly training by recruiting and educating students in a dual master’s degree program. Twenty students will receive scholarships and a reduction in the number of credits required to complete the two master’s degrees—one in library and information science and the other in a subject area of the student’s choice. A structured mentorship program is designed to match students with mentor librarians at New York University or other institutions in the New York area, according to the students’ specific subject interests.
