WILIS 2 was a follow-up study to develop an alumni tracking system aimed at recent graduates that could potentially be used by all LIS programs. The project built on WILIS 1, a comprehensive IMLS funded study of career patterns of graduates of LIS programs in North Carolina. WILIS 2 builds on WILIS 1 by fully developing and testing the career tracking model on a national level. The WILIS 2 survey was designed for recent graduates of LIS programs in North America. The survey gathered data on demographics, employment, LIS Master’s Program experience and evaluation and knowledge and skills provided by the LIS Program. 39 LIS programs participated in the study. Programs were asked to select a random sample of 250 of their master’s degree graduates from the previous five years; however, several programs included a few graduates from earlier years. Fewer than four percent of these respondents graduated prior to 2003. Programs with multiple degrees were able to select the degree programs included in their sample. The graduates received an email i nvitation and three email reminders. A few programs mailed paper invitations to encourage better response rates. The response rate for the survey was 41% (n=3507). Response rates for individual programs ranged from 16 % to 80%. The dataset of the 39 LIS programs includes alumni that graduated between 2000 and 2009.
