MLIS New Advisees

Dear new advisees,

Welcome to the program! We are thrilled to have you here.

If you were newly admitted, email me to schedule a meeting so we can discuss your course schedule and end-of-program assessment options.

Before we have an initial meeting, take the time to review and complete the MLIS Program Planning Form as much as you can and bring any questions you might have. The form is available on the MLIS Document Hub ( in the SLIS homepage. It must be submitted to the SLIS office prior to the completion of 12 hours.

The Document Hub also has Program Planning Guides for different concentrations as well as End-of-Program Assessment materials. SLIS offers three options, including comprehensive examination (comps), portfolio, and thesis. We can discuss which option best fits your own needs, goals, and learning style.

I encourage you to keep in touch with me at least once a semester regarding your progress and any changes made to your course schedule. The best way to reach me is via email: My office is located in the Bizzell library basement Room 27. Each semester I set office hours, but feel free to email me to schedule a meeting besides the office hours. When a face-to-face meeting is unavailable, we can use phone, Skype (ID: kyungwonkoh), Google Hangout (, and more. Make sure you check your OU email daily.

Please don’t hesitate to let me know how I can assist you to make your experience in SLIS more meaningful and enjoyable. I look forward to working with you!
