CEDAR FALLS, Iowa -- The University of Northern Iowa is accepting applications for its Master of Arts in School Library Studies program that begins in fall 2014. This program prepares students to become teacher librarians who use their acquired knowledge of children and young people, books and information technologies, curriculum and the power of collaboration to enhance the learning experiences of students in their schools.

"Leading inquiry learning through the best sources, searches and technologies is what makes the teacher librarian role one of the best in the school," said Karla Krueger, program coordinator.

Courses in this program are offered online using eLearning. Many courses meet once per week via interactive video conferencing. Some courses include one or two in-person, hands-on experiences on Saturdays at the UNI campus.

The program begins this fall using a cohort model in which a group of students moves together through the course sequence, with the degree or certificate to be awarded in fall 2016. To learn more about this program and how to apply, visit distance.uni.edu/sls.
