The following announcement may be of interest to American Memory Fellows
and Library staff:

The deadline to apply for the Distance-Independent Ph.D. Program at the
University of North Texas School of Library & Information Sciences
program is December 15, 2004.

The University of North Texas at Denton announces the availability of
10 additional fellowships in its Distance-Independent Ph.D. Program.
Beginning in the summer of 2005, a Web-supported cohort will be created
with assistance provided for two years tuition and computer with
broadband connectivity. The following announcement comes from Dr. Brian
O'Connor, program director and is also posted at
http://web2.unt.edu/isdocs/distancePhD.htm.

We are creating a diverse cohort of doctoral students, easing or
erasing monetary, cultural, and geographic roadblocks, and refining a
model that will have broad application to doctoral level education for
our field. We will pay tuition for the coursework portion of the
doctoral pursuits of five students interested in school media libraries
and provide assistance for a computer and broadband connectivity. The
program will be largely web-based coursework and socializing experience.
This will be combined with mentoring by faculty and professionals in the
field.

The University of North Texas School of Library & Information Sciences
is in a unique location, technological environment, and educational
model to take a doctoral program beyond a brick and mortar setting. Our
successes with the on-line School Media program, delivery of numerous
graduate courses in a Web Institute format, experiences with mediated
doctoral courses, and an interdisciplinary faculty provide the
foundation for this opportunity to enrich lives and develop the
professoriate needed to train capable, thoughtful, and caring 21st
century librarians. We especially encourage members of under represented
groups to apply. If you are interested in participating in a blended
learning environment of distance education and on-site interaction,
please submit a letter or e-mail of inquiry to:
