ABSTRACT
A study was undertaken of the teaching load for full-time faculty at the 30 institutions with American Library Association (ALA)-accredited programs that offer the Ph.D. degree. The principal conclusion was that a 2+2 teaching load is the overwhelming standard among the 30 institutions with ALA-accredited master's in science (MS) in library and information science (US) programs that also either host a Ph.D. program or participate in an interdisciplinary or multidisciplinary Ph.D. program. The unusual preponderance of Ph.D. programs among institutions with ALA-accredited programs, and the high overlap between "information" (I) Schools and doctoral programs is briefly discussed.
