This Certificate Program is an online 15-credit post-master’s program offered by the University of Pittsburgh’s School of Information Sciences in partnership with the University of Pittsburgh’s Health Sciences Library System. The partnership between an ALA-accredited MLIS program and a world-class, dynamic health sciences library offers a unique educational experience. The curriculum is based on contemporary applications of current information management theories and technologies. The course of study is enriched by the varied and rich experience that practicing medical librarian instructors bring to the program.
Development of this Certificate program was supported by a grant from the U. S. Institute of Museum and Library Services. Please visit http://www.hsls.pitt.edu/healthcas to meet three of the HealthCAS librarian faculty and to explore their course offerings.
