Contrary to popular belief, one does not have to be a "computer person" to take IAKM courses. And there is a very strong connection between the M.L.I.S. program (with regard to organization of and access to information, among other things) and how that can be applied in an IAKM course. In fact, most of IAKM faculty have library and/or information science degrees as well.
IAKM courses are listed at http://iakm.kent.edu/courses. Students who have questions should speak with their advisor, the faculty member who is teaching the course, or Janna Korzenko, M.L.I.S., academic program coordinator for IAKM, at 330-672-5841 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
