BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The University at Buffalo has a new option for Fredonia-area residents who want to pursue a master's degree in library science (MLS) through the UB School of Informatics' Department of Library and Information Studies (DLIS).

The department will offer selected courses via interactive video delivered to the Erie 2 Chautauqua-Cattaraugus BOCES site at 9520 Fredonia-Stockton Road.

While most courses must be taken at UB, this option will allow students to attend some courses in Fredonia.

The application deadline for a January 2005 admission to the program is Oct. 1. Students will be admitted after that date on a space-available basis.

Individual UB DLIS courses also may be taken on a non-matriculating basis by individuals who want to take one or two courses, but who do not want to pursue an MLS degree.

Application information is on the Department of Library and Information Studies Web site at http://informatics.buffalo.edu/admissions/MLS/index.asp. Prospective students may call the department's admissions secretary Donna King (716) 645-2412 extension 1173.
