I thought I'd get a thread going on the various masters of library/information sciences programs that people have gone to or are thinking about attending - pros, cons, general thoughts. I'm a law student who is considering law librarianship, and I've been told that three of the best programs that will allow me to specialize in law librarianship or academic libraries are the University of Texas, the University of Indiana, and the University of Illinois. My friend is considering the University of Toronto (yes, ALA accredited) because they offer a PhD in book history and print culture in combination w/ an MIS - she was an English/Anthropology double major undergrad, with a masters in publishing and literature.

This is a good thought. I'm looking at Young Adult librarianship or perhaps reference in a small-ish library. For YA, I heard that UIUC (Illinois- Urbana/Champaign) was the best, at least according to US News and World Report. I would assume that's the same University of Illinois that you're talking about elphaba. The reference librarian at the library where I work went to UIndiana (just found that out). The other place I'm looking is UMichigan, though mostly because it's in state, and I'm very poor (but what college student isn't?).
