Abstract:This exploratory dissertation study compares 17 iSchools and 36 Other Schools that offer the ALA-accredited Masters degree program with respect to certain characteristics. The study compiles quantitative and qualitative data on 32 variables and subvariables drawn from the 2010 ALISE Statistical Report, web sites of the schools, and the Elsevier SCOPUS database. Statistical analysis of the data reveals significant differences between the iSchools and the Other Schools. The analysis and results have been completed, but the conclusions and implications are still under consideration.
