Being part of the NCCU SLIS Cataloging class earlier this week is still on my mind. One of my favorite parts of the class was when I had the group go around the table and tell us a little bit about how they arrived at library school and what their professional goals where, if anything yet. Even though the class was small, I was impressed by their diverse backgrounds and interests going into librarianship.
I haven’t decided what kind of librarian I want to be when I grow up, so I enjoy hearing other librarians’ stories. I enjoy my current work a lot, but I have a feeling the library school will expand my “world view” of libraries and the profession of librarianship. That’s part of what I’m really looking forward to! Meanwhile, NCCU’s library science school has several tracks that I’m interested in: Academic Libraries, Public Libraries, and Digital Libraries. I wonder if I can fit them all in.
If you’re a librarian or a library science school student, I’d love to hear YOUR story!
