Welcome New Students!

Today is Advising Day at GSLIS, and about 25 of the 70 or so students who will be starting here in the summer semester (like I did last year) were on campus today for orientation activities and registration. I went to the lunch for the new students to talk to them about ALASC (American Library Association Student Chapter) and answer any other questions they had about classes, the Boston/Cambridge/Somerville area, and other library- (or not) related topics.

It has been almost a year since I started this program, and I have learned so much about the library world in general, as well as acquiring specific skill sets: cataloging, web development and design, best practices in public libraries and collection development. To paraphrase Julia Child’s sentiments about cooking, the more you learn, the more there is to know!
