Undergraduate or Graduate Program?
Establishing a library school continued to be affected by differing perceptions in the state about whether it should be an undergraduate or graduate program. Dr. Jones was convinced that what was needed was a graduate level program but was willing to listen to the opinions of others. On this date he called together and met with library leaders in the state. They formed a new Statewide Standing Committee on Library Education.
