The MLIS/MLS curriculum can vary widely. Typically both practical and theoretical components are included, often along with a practicum or internship, and students frequently have an opportunity to specialize in one or more aspects of library and information science. Some schools have stringent course requirements, while others are more flexible and offer a wide variety of electives. Coursework may entail traditional library topics, such as reference work, cataloging, collection development, school libraries, or archiving. There may also be a focus on information science and computer science topics, such as database design, as well as information architecture. Other skills taught may include management or pedagogy. Students generally complete a research project or thesis during the last semester of their program.

“We cannot think of anything Leslie could have done better in the sale of my late father’s home. While his home was beautiful and in a fantastic location, it was very dated and we live 400 miles away. Leslie knew the local market, gave us a realistic opinion of the value and put a lot of time and thought into what our priorities needed to be in order to sell the house quickly. She respected our thoughts and concerns throughout the process. The contractors she recommended for the updates did a great job. We have never had a real estate agent keep us as up to date as Leslie did. As closing approached, she went out of her way to assist us in tracking down the necessary documentation and signatures which was a huge help as we work and are so far away from Brevard. The most important things to me were that she was a pleasure to interact with and we came to trust her more and more as time went on.”

This said, it is not entirely inconceivable that new systems will be introduced to the market that share information horizontally across the market, not only between agents (under a fee sharing arrangement), but with other participants in the transaction such as mortgagors and surveyors. Moreover, UK estate agencies have shown resistance to the inflating fees charged by large property portals. In any case, the future of MLS in the UK will most probably be shaped by changes to competition law, consumer behaviours and the rate of technological advancement.
The Dark Years: In the late 1990s many of the smaller agencies were acquired by larger companies, breaking many of the MLS relationships that existed. More software options came in (all in competition) and, as the software houses did not work together, their collectives of agents became fragmented by non-collaborative out-of-group software restraints. With large property portals gaining ground in the 2000s agents in the UK started working alone as all could upload to the same portal platforms.
