Now I have no affiliation with Simmons College. I'd never heard of it don't know where it is even located. But I have to say, these course offerings shake my long held faith in the reactionary nature of higher ed.
Are all schools of library information science as cutting edge as Simmons seems to be? Do librarians-in-training at Simmons still get Reference I, Bib of the Humanities, and Cataloging and Classification? Do other schools of education - teaching and administration - offer classes in information technologies either at Simmons or elsewhere?
Oh, and are these Simmons classes being taught by actual professors or by adjuncts?
