Two UNT DIS Courses Approved for Medical Library Association Specializations

The Medical Library Association provides specializations in four areas, and two Department of Information Science courses have been approved to count towards Level II specializations in Consumer Health Information and Disaster Information.  Students who successfully complete INFO 5636: Community-Based Health Information are eligible to apply for the Consumer Health Information Specialization (CHIS) Level II, and students who successfully complete INFO 5634: Disaster and Emergency Management for Information Professionals are eligible to apply for the Disaster Information Specialization (DIS) Level II. Currently, the Network of the National Library of Medicine (NNLM) is providing financial support for graduate library and information sciences students to offset the application fees for the specializations.  

UNT has been working closely with John Bramble, NNLM Region 4 and National Training Office Executive Director, and Samantha Nunn, NNLM Region 4 Project Manager, on this initiative.
