The Knowledge River (KR) will accept applications for KR cohort 11 until March 1, 2012. ”Knowledge River educates culturally and linguistically sensitive library and information professionals to serve and represent Latino and Native American cultural communities. This is a program for students interested in earning their M.A. studying information resources, libraries, archives as well as museums.”
Applicants must be accepted for admission into the University of Arizona’s School of Information Resources and Library Science (SIRLS). Some of our very own BPLG members have gone through this program and it’s an excellent opportunity to get into the field and focus on your interest in serving the Latino and Native American cultural communities. You’ll find more information on Knowledge River on their homepage or email Knowledge River directly for details. Also, head to the University of Arizona’s (SIRLS) site for info on admission requirements.
