My first semester at SLIS was filled with core classes (200 and 202) and learning how to manage my online education while working full time. My second semester I planned to take another core course, LIBR 204. As a new student, it was easy to gloss over the course schedule during that first year – I already knew what I had to take. But I would scroll longingly down that course schedule webpage to see what else was being offered. There were so many electives that looked interesting I didn’t know where to begin. Now as I enter my last semester with only the ePortfolio left to complete I wish I had time to explore more classes, especially the seminars.
SLIS has a handful of courses that feature multiple sections, each one covering current trends or topics in the information profession. These classes are called seminars.
Keep your eye on seminars – the topics change frequently and they are always being updated. These courses feature trending ideas, cutting edge technology, and the future of library and information science.
