career tracking
Abstract:WILIS 2 is a three year project (2007-2010) to create an alumni tracking system that all LIS master’s programs can potentially use. The project builds on WILIS 1, a comprehensive study of career patterns of graduates of LIS programs in North Carolina. LIS programs have generally lacked the time and resources to systematically survey their graduates. As a result, stakeholders lack an adequate understanding of what happens to LIS graduates. LIS educators, in particular, do not have ongoing data about the extent to which their programs meet students’ expectations, prepare them for the workplace or meet continuing learning needs. Such an understanding will assist in educating and managing the LIS workforce more effectively.
