The Course Rotations linked below list all LIS courses and the semester(s) in which these courses are typically offered:
SLIS offers courses on selected topics in library and information science to allow students to pursue special interests in greater depth. Selected Topics course descriptions are provided in the Schedule of Classes when the course is offered.
Some SLIS courses require special approval from a faculty member prior to registration. Generally, the courses that may require special approval are LIS 60607, LIS 60624 and LIS 60630. Other courses may also be designated for special approval on the Detailed Course Schedule.
If you would like to register for one of these courses, please complete the Special Class Approval form. As with the waitlisting process, you will need to know your FlashLine user name and the CRN of the class(es) for which you wish to register. Special Approval requests will be accessible on the first day of registration.
The waitlist for Library and Information Science courses only (not workshops or IAKM courses) will be done using the Waitlist form on this website. You will NOT waitlist through FlashLine.
To add yourself to the waitlist for a course, you will need to know your FlashLine user name and the CRN of the class(es) for which you want to register. Waitlisting will be available on the first day of registration.
To ensure that a workshop credit applies to your degree, remember that you must fill out a Request for Workshop Credit form and have it signed by your advisor prior to registering for the workshop. You should also review the Workshop Course Overlap List. Please note that currently there is no waitlisting for workshops.
