Hello! I am a first-year doctoral student in SLIS. I recently came from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities Libraries working as a Resident Librarian. As one of two Resident Librarians I had the opportunity to work in a few areas of the University's libraries including reference, archives, cataloging, electronic licensing, and collection managment.
I have many areas of interest including children's and young adult literature - mainly graphic novels and zines, LIS education, history of libraries, special collections, print culture, and diversity issues.
I would love to be on the road to a mastery paper resulting from this course, but I'll have to wait and see how my first semester goes. Any advice to a first-year would be much appreciated!
