LIT Course Sequencing

We have put up two new documents related to the LIT program on the blog. The first is a course sequencing document that explains when courses are offered in the LIT program and helps you to plan when you should take each library class in the A.S. degree and the certificates. The second document is a course planning document that helps you map out all the courses required for the A.S. degree. Both documents are listed under the "MCTC Links" section on the right side of the blog.

Here are the direct links to the documents:
