Borgman, Christine L.
Covering the academic years 1994-95 through 1995-96, this document presents the University of California, Los Angeles's (UCLA's) biennial narrative report to the American Library Association Committee on Accreditation. The document is divided into two parts. The first part, General Narrative Report, addresses changes that have occurred in various aspects of the Department of Library and Information Science and its environment. The following subtopics are discussed: administrative leadership, administration and governance, faculty, academic programs, Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) course offerings, internships, and instructional resources and staffing. The second section of the report, Response to Previous Accreditation Review, addresses the two recommendations from the 1988 accreditation review that have not yet been released. Both are listed under a section entitled "Program Goals and Objectives. Recommendation number one states that the school should continue to identify and implement strategies that will achieve its goals of increasing the racial and ethnic diversity in its faculty and student body. Recommendation number two states that in its faculty development, the school should place a priority on the need for teaching and research competence on the regular tenure-track faculty in the areas of children's literature, school librarianship and special librarianship.
