Explanation of what this site is Posted by Eric Hadley-IvesThis website is a service to programs and schools that are comparable to the LIS and LNT programs at the University of Illinois in Springfield. Without accepting money or asking programs to pay for representation here, we have tried to collect a list of programs similar to ours, and we allow any program similar to ours to control the narrative content of the information delivered on the web page describing their program. If a program hasn't offered a narrative description of their program, we paraphrase what we know about the program or have learned by studying the program's web pages and other authoritative sources. We use official government and university websites to fill in most of the descriptive data. Programs comparable to ours would include: online and campus-based programs in liberal arts; interdisciplinary programs at public liberal arts institutions; liberal arts programs at schools that are members of the Consortium of Public Liberal Arts Colleges (COPLAC); programs that are members of the Association of Graduate Liberal Studies Programs (AGLSP); programs where students self-design their own bachelor's or master's degrees; and liberal arts programs at schools that seem similar to ours despite not being members of COPLAC or AGLSP.
