U.S. News Rankings: Failing Grades for Four Out of Five Local Schools

After a three-year hiatus, U.S. News & World Report has published its rankings report for library and information studies programs. UIUC and UNC are again tied for top honors. Our neighbors in New Brunswick, NJ (Rutgers) pulled in at a very respectable 6th and took the number one spot in the School Library Media category. Not one of the four LIS schools in NYC made the rankings. That's right: Queens College, the Palmer School, Pratt Institute, and St. John's all fell below the Mendoza Line.
