Library Science Comprehensive Exam Spring 2017

Spring 2017 Comps Week has been scheduled for through . If you plan on taking comps in the spring and have not yet notified the SISLT Student Services Office, please do so at your earliest convenience so we can add you to the list. The online application for spring graduation will be available beginning at

On , members of the comps committee will be loading the hints and some suggested readings for each of the four comps sections into the Spring 2017 Comps site titled ISLT Master’s Comprehensive Examination — SP2017 (it will show up in your course list in Canvas). As in previous semesters, the comps committee will be creating a set of discussion threads within Canvas, the purpose of which is to create an environment for information exchange between the comps faculty and the student preparing for comps. There are no requirements for participation, this is an effort to support your preparations.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS: If you will not be enrolled in any coursework during the semester in which you take comps, it is Office of Graduate Studies policy that you must enroll in Graduate Examination credit. You will find this information in MyZou under the heading “Miscellaneous.” It is called “Graduate Examination,” and it is course number 8999. It is not worth credit, but officially enrolls Master’s students who have finished their course work at the university so that they are eligible to take comps. Also, if you are graduating in the spring and have not submitted the M-1 Program of Study form, you should do so ASAP or your graduation may be delayed. If you need to make changes to your original program of study, the course substitution form can be found on our website at

If you have any questions about the exam process, please contact Amy Adam, Student Services Coordinator at and by phone (573) 884-1391 or Toll-free (877) 747-5868.
