Please join me in congratulating MLIS student Lauren Frazier on her new appointment as the Membership Director for SJSU’s ASIS&T Student Chapter! I chatted with Lauren to get to know her, find out more about ASIS&T and her plans for her new role.
Lauren started her iSchool journey in the fall of 2016 and plans to graduate in summer next year. She works as a Library Clerk at the Monterey Park Bruggemeyer Library in Southern California. Her focus is on public librarianship, and information literacy and instruction. Lauren shared with me why students should consider joining ASIS&T, “if you’re a student who is more interested in the IT side or the information science side, ASIS&T is great for that. Another great thing about ASIS&T is that it’s really focused on research, so if you’re going to go into research after you graduate or if you’re interested in it while you’re in the program, it’s a really great chapter to join.”
