willpie writes "My fiancee is thinking of pursuing an MLS. Having seen my student loan debt load, though, she is uncomfortable with the idea of funding it herself. My previous employer had a librarian trainee program in which they would partially subsidize tuition and pay a salary to MLS students who work in their libraries and agree to continue to work in their libraries for a few years after completing an MLS. Do you know of other libraries or library systems (public, academic, or otherwise) that offer similar programs? How do those of you who participate in these programs feel about them?
