comments on mlim
Comments onMLIM

MSc[LIM] is very useful for school librarians. The content is insightful & lecturers are very helpful.  I enjoy studying the course & I have recommended this course to other school librarians

The program is very good in terms of breadth & depth of knowledge provided in the field of LIM. I have worked in libraries for 9 years. I think the knowledge covered in different modules are current & updated such as web 2.0, social bookmarking & library visits analysis. The modules are very practical too!
