Applications are now being accepted for the 2011-2012 Certificate of
Advanced Study in Health Sciences Librarianship at the University of
Pittsburgh.  This yearlong program, beginning in May 2011, provides
librarians with in-depth knowledge of the health care environment and
advanced skills in managing health sciences collections and resources.
Graduates will be prepared to play a key role in helping clinicians,
researchers and healthcare consumers to keep pace with the expanding
knowledge base in the health sciences.

HealthCAS is an online 15-credit post-master’s program offered jointly
by the University of Pittsburgh School of Information Sciences and the
University’s Health Sciences Library System.  The partnership between an
ALA-accredited LIS program and a world-class, dynamic health sciences
library offers a unique educational experience.  The HealthCAS
curriculum is based on contemporary applications of current information
management theories and technologies and the varied and rich experiences
that practicing medical librarian instructors bring to the program.

Please visit to meet three of the
HealthCAS librarian faculty and learn about the courses they are
offering.  Advisors will also be available online to answer your
questions about this innovative program at the following events.
