    1924- ALA responded to the Williamson report, created the Temporary Library Training Board
    Board of Eduaction for Librarianship (BEL) created standards for library education (1925 & 1933)
    Carnegie Corporation devised a plan for programs that led to master's degrees and Ph. D.s in library science (doctoral progam began at the University of Chicago in 1928)
    Carnegie Corporation developed first school for African American librarians - The Hampton Institute Library School - opened in 1925)
    Most library schools created a fifth-year master's degree program by the - 1950s it was standard
    1930s - 1970s
    Developments regarding libraries and library education slowedd during the depression
    Schools continued to focus on routine rather than methodology and theory
    1951 - the BEL issued new standards for library education
    Five years were now required - a master's degree
    1956 - ALA Committee on Accreditation (COA) was formed to evaluate and accredit library schools
    1960s saw a boom in library education and services, due to the boom in population and the economy
    There was a significant expansion of libraries - which created a demand for librarians
    By the 1970s there were more than seventy accredited library schools with master's programs
    1980s - to Present Day
    There was a great decline in schools and libraries in the 80s and 90s
    Esteemed, accredited schools were closed due to financial burdens
    By 1999 there were only 56 ALA accredited schools remaining
    Enrollment did peak in 1992 - but there has been a considerable decline since
    1998 had 12,800 students enrolled in master's degree programs (US and Canada)
    Library Science programs have undergone considerable changes since the 90s
    Introductioon of the Internet has changed the duties of librarians and the education they need to receive
    Technology has surpassed the efforts of the schools; textbooks can't keep up with the changing needs
    Instruction is constantlty revamped as are class catalogs and content
    The focus of library courses is now on keeping students tech savy and current
