  • Welcome Back!
    Happy New Year and welcome back, GSLIS! I hope you all had a fabulous holiday and a relaxing break. I am still in denial that the spring semester is here. Today reality sunk in and I reluctantly opened some emails...
  • The Opposite of Rejection…I hope.
    My last post about being rejected for a job I really wanted was sort of sad. Sorry about that. But really, I was depressed about that job. It sounded so cool. But that very day I was called about another...
  • Rejection
    About two weeks ago, I got notification of the *perfect* job. It was a full-time information-literacy librarian position at a small, private college close to home. In my mind, I fit all of the qualifications. The pay wasn’t great, but...
  • East Meets West Part II: The Details
    After last week’s post, I got a comment from a prospective GSLIS student, Jodi. She writes, "As a prospective student (probably West), I would love to hear more about the differences between the two, especially from a student's perspective. Anyone...
  • East Meets West
    I bet many of you have seen this map before. It’s funny! And sort of true. But some of us out in the dragon-filled regions see Boston not so much as the center of the universe, but more as...
  • Crossing the Finish Line

  • Yoga - You Won't Regret It
    For those of us who, like me, are buried in the depths of this program we can truly understand the need to keep our mental and physical health at the forefront. I do feel strongly that we deserve to reward...
  • Family Questions
    This weekend I am attending a fancy family gathering to celebrate my grandfather’s 75th birthday. So in addition to worrying about what I am going to wear, I am also trying to prepare myself to be inundated with questions about...
  • Friends
    [caption id="attachment_1609" align="alignleft" width="300"] Michelle (far right), myself (middle), and our friend Carly this summer.[/caption] I never thought I’d go to library school. I wasn’t even sure I’d get a master’s degree at all. So you can imagine how amazed...
  • Field trips aren’t just for kids!
    [caption id="attachment_1603" align="alignleft" width="300"] The Smith College Museum of Art in Northampton, MA[/caption] One thing I love about GSLIS professors is they are always making sure that we aren’t just sitting in a classroom trying to absorb information. They really...
  • Stylish Librarians
    A fellow student complimented my shoe choice last week. She noted that many of the GSLIS West students were stylish. I thought about it and realized that she was not only right about GSLIS West students, but librarians in general....
  • GSLIS West Book Swap
    Even to those of us not swimming in student loans, money is often on our minds at the start of a new semester. With the cost of tuition, school supplies and transportation, the cost of books added to that can...
