MLIS Graduate Helping to Archive the Immortal Work of Charles M. Schulz

“My love of history led me down the archives pathway of classes. I chose SJSU’s iSchool because it is ALA accredited, and having an online program was important for me since I was working full time and needed to ‘attend classes’ at odd hours.”

Brittany Austin: A Grand Pas to Success

“Two of my major motivations for going back to school for my MLIS were to build communities and to share information and resources within these communities. My overall academic goals were to take classes that gave me new experiences that I could not learn on the job at my current position in a college library.”

Intrepid Explorer Pursues Film Preservation

“The librarian degree will help me in my field. The [film preservation] certificate will say that, not only does this woman have the technical ability to handle these films, but she also knows how to catalog, she knows the procedures, has the information science background, knows metadata. The ‘Indiana Jones of Movies’ is what they call me.”
