Have you ever wondered what it is like to work in a health science library or a federal library? The Make-a-Connection program provides an excellent introduction to special libraries by connecting you with a practicing LIS professional to learn more about their jobs, work environments, and career history.
We are looking for students who are currently enrolled in a library program and/or have graduated in the past six months who want to explore different types of workplaces and make connections within the local community of LIS professionals. If you are interested, please fill out the sign-up form by Friday, September 23rd. You and the host with whom you are matched up will be contacted by Wednesday, October 5th with each other’s contact information. It will be up to you and the host to figure out the date and time of your connection; we encourage you to meet by Tuesday, November 15th.
