Underwood, Linda
School Library Media Activities Monthly, v23 n6 p28-30 Feb 2007
Universities offering school library media programs seek accreditation from various regional and national organizations. This accreditation makes the programs valid and marketable. School media programs within a college of education seek accreditation from specialized accrediting bodies. The National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) is one agency that offers specialized accreditation to library media programs. This article takes a closer look at several accrediting organizations such the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) which is part of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA), the Middle States Commission on Higher Education (MSC), the Southern Association of colleges and Schools (SACS), the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC), the New England Association of Schools & Colleges, Inc. (NEASC), and Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities (NWCCU).
