Join the DLIS community on Zoom to hear from a spectrum of MLS/MLIS degreed professionals in a variety of roles, working across industries. Ask your career questions, discuss, engage, and network each month.
- Please join us for our final fall session next Wednesday (11/17) to hear from Hong Yao, Queens Public Library.
- The Department of Library and Information Science is delighted to publish the spring 2022 roster of speakers. More information and the rsvp link can be found below.
Industry speakers = bringing information science professionals to you!
The series intent is to help DLIS students build perspective on how to develop a career in library and information science by hearing from working professionals across sectors and at a variety of career stages. Gain insight on career opportunities and potential applications of the MLIS by hearing from speakers about their path to librarianship/information science, work history, professional advancement, and general advice for those entering the job market.
DLIS students as well as undergrad/grad SoIC & others, alumni, and professionals in the broader LIS community or those interested in librarianship and information professions.
Last Wednesday of the month during the fall and spring semesters, 7 pm EST
Due to the end of the semester, there is no December or May speaker.
It can be tough to know about the daily work of specific roles, or gauge areas of interest when you are earning your degree. Gain a better sense of what you can work toward and how you might approach the job market. In-person interaction can be challenging in a fully-online asynchronous program. This series is an opportunity to interact with professionals in real time, ask questions, and interact with fellow students and faculty.
