Thanks to the wonderful world of social bookmarks, Rebecca Hedreen points out this neat (slightly outdated) Comparison Guide to Distance Ed Programs for Getting the MLS. Part of the larger Become a Librarian site put together by the Central Jersey Regional Library Cooperative, the chart provides links, cost for in and out of state tuition, residency requirements, credits required, contact info and deadline info. Also, and perhaps most useful of all, experiences from people who've been through the programs. Good stuff! I hope they're planning to keep it up to date.
Perhaps something similar could be done for the Canadian Info*Nation site? Probably not for distance programs, since I don't think we have many (or any), but for Cdn MLS programs in general.
