Searchable Database of ALA-Accredited Programs

Each entry includes contact information, program name, date through which it is accredited, and distance education opportunities. You can search by state/province, distance education options, degree type, and specific institution.

Some entries have a notation of (Conditional) next to them. This indicates conditional accreditation—a status assigned to a program that must make changes to comply with the Standards for Accreditation of Master’s Programs in Library and Information Studies to enable accreditation beyond the date specified by the Committee on Accreditation (COA). Please note that these programs are fully accredited under the Standards.

This directory offers summary information only. Please consult the school directly for in-depth information regarding programs, course offerings, distance education programs, admissions, financial aid, and degrees.
