Advice from a recent MLIS graduate

There is a new book chapter from John M. Jackson.  It is “Getting Your MLIS Degree Online: Tips from a Recent Grad” in the book Continuing Education for Librarians.

Starting on page 44, he provides a section on technology.  He recommends that students learn more about collaborative technologies, social networking technologies and file organization.  The rest of the chapter looks pretty interesting, too.

  1. This is really interesting (and reasurring). I’m currently doing the MLIS in UCD and found myself taking mostly technology focussed modules. I was worried I was missing out on some of the more traditional modules, but I hope having a technology background will help me when it comes to getting a job.

  2. LIS is certainly going in the direction of more technology. Having a good technology background can’t hurt you. Wish you luck.
