Is the required course core Info Org or something like a beginning cataloging course?

If the school media program has it owns course on info org than perhaps they don't need to double up on core Info Org. 

However, if you are making taking a core Info Org course a choice for ALL students than that is crazy.....its foundational. How can you not teach it?   Collection Management is not the same as Info Org---it is not foundational.  

My two-cents.

Subject: [EXT] [eduCAT] Organization of Information course for School Media Students

Dear Colleagues,


Our School had removed the requirement of Organization of Information course for School Media Program students (35% of the total student population).

Today, we are voting for making Organization of Information course or Collection Management course as a choice for ALL students.

How would you respond to this vote if you were me at the faculty meeting?

Thank you,
