The University of Pittsburgh invites applications to its online Certificate of Advanced Study in Health Sciences Librarianship (HealthCAS). This one-year 15-credit post-master?s program is offered jointly by the University’s School of Information Sciences (iSchool) and the Health Sciences Library System (HSLS).
HealthCAS will provide librarians with in-depth knowledge of the health care environment and skills in managing information collections, resources and technologies. Because it is offered online, students have the flexibility to fit coursework into their working schedule. The project is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). Applications are now being accepted for the online program which begins in May 2010. Financial aid and scholarships are available.
