Welcome to the new MARA blog!

MARA Blog pfranks

We’ve just launched this first SJSU iSchool MARA blog. The blog is intended for current and prospective MARA students, MARA faculty, and others interested in Archives, Records Administration, and Information Governance.

My name is Darren Ilett, and I will serve as the MARA Blog Editor in collaboration with Dr. Pat Franks. I am an MLIS student in the iSchool and will graduate this upcoming May. I am particularly interested in Information Literacy instruction, but I have also worked in several museum and library archives positions, including the German Film Museum in Frankfurt and the Center for Southwest Research at the University of New Mexico.

This blog is meant to support your studies and professional work. If there is anything you would like to see here, please let us know. I look forward to working with you over the coming months!
