And so it begins…again!

Though this is my final year in the SJSU SLIS program, today marks the start of the journey for all new students. As a LIBR 203 Peer Mentor I am excited to share this time with you all!

You can read a bit about my personal life in my blog’s sidebar. However, to give a deeper understanding of my educational background, here is a list of courses that I’ve taken so far in my time as a library student:

  • LIBR 200: Information and Society
  • LIBR 202: Information Retrieval
  • LIBR 203: Online Technology Tools
  • LIBR 204: Information Organization and Management
  • LIBR 210: Reference
  • LIBR 246: Web 2.0
  • LIBR 248: Cataloging & Classification
  • LIBR 260A: Children’s Programming & Services
  • LIBR 281: Diversity Issues in Information Environments
  • LIBR 282: Correctional Libraries Management
  • LIBR 282: Grant Writing
  • LIBR 284: Oral History

  1. Are you doing a portfolio or thesis? It’d be great to hear about that decision process from someone nearly done with the program.

    • Originally, I wanted to pursue a thesis. However, after talking with a few professors I am opting for the ePortfolio. Since I will be graduating without having a previous position in a library, it was suggested that the ePortfolio would be a better showcase for all that I’ve learned in the SLIS program. While a thesis could make me a better candidate for PhD program (an eventual goal of mine), my first goal upon graduation will be to get a job. Of course, there are no guarantees either way!
