LIBRARY SCIENCE: EDUCATION : EDUCATION: COLLEGE: GRADUATE : UNITED STATES: STATES: LOUISIANA: LSU to Eliminate or Reduce 20 Academic Programs, Centers, Institutes and Facilities LSU to Eliminate or Reduce 20 Academic Programs, Centers, Institutes and Facilities New Orleans.com <http://www.neworleans.com/news/local-news/401760.html>In response to the current fiscal crisis facing higher education in Louisiana, LSU Chancellor Michael Martin has recommended the elimination or reduction of 20 academic programs, centers, institutes and facilities at LSU in the first phase of changes to reduce costs and focus the mission of the university.
The changes would result in a savings of approximately $3 million annually for LSU when fully implemented.
<snip>Academic programs recommended for closure include the Master of Library and Information Sciences, the Bachelor of Arts in German and Latin and the reduction of language options for a savings of approximately $1.5 million at full implementation. Additional savings of $500,000 would be achieved through administrative adjustments in Continuing Education.
Centers, institutes and facilities recommended for closure include the Office of Community Preservation in the College of Art & Design; the Louisiana Population Data Center and the Writing Center in the College of Arts & Sciences; the Design & Drafting Center, Scientific Glassblowing Facility, Geochemistry Facility, Oxy-Anion Stable Isotope Center and Bird Resource Center in the College of Basic Sciences; the Education Policy Research Center in the College of Education; and the Center for Advanced Materials in the Office of Research and Economic Development.
Also recommended was the elimination of state funding to the Eric Voegelin Institute and the Cartographic Section in the College of Arts & Sciences; the United States Civil War Center and the T. Harry Williams Center for Oral History in the LSU Libraries; and the Center for French and Francophone Studies in the Office of Research and Economic Development.
Library school:Keep it open May 26, 2010 The News Star <http://www.thenewsstar.com/article/20100526/OPINION03/5260328>In a recent press release from LSU regarding budget cuts, the School of Library and Information Science was targeted for closure.
<snip>Most universities have already eliminated their school librarian programs. Outside of Louisiana many states are requiring more librarians and more of the librarians in the public schools. Without programs such as LSU's, we will have to go elsewhere to find qualified librarians for schools, public and academic libraries.
It is not reasonable to expect future librarians to attend schools out-of-state with significantly higher tuition.
