iSchool Alumna and Academic Law Librarian Continues to Evolve Her Career

Elyse Meyers

“I selected SJSU because of its flexibility, because I wanted to be at a California school, and because once I made the decision to transition out of practicing law, I wanted to get started fast and jump on the next stage of my career. The convenience of online education – I could stay in LA, where I’d been living for quite a while, I could travel some, I could do internships where I wanted, etc. – was a big factor.”

Urban Planner and iSchool Alumnus Explores Deep Relationship Between Public Libraries and Cities

Jonathan P. Bell

“I chose SJSU iSchool for its affordable tuition, flexible online program and access to high-quality faculty and graduate student research opportunities in the MLIS program. These continue to be my selling points when people ask me about the MLIS program at SJSU iSchool. This MLIS program afforded me a space to explore my questions about the role of public libraries in urban life.”
