36 credit hours complete. It felt pretty wonderful to see that on my transcript this past week. After 5 semesters and about 20 months, I have completed my MLIS degree. Still feels a bit surreal. Probably won’t hit me until I walk at graduation next week. It’s exciting, though. And made more exciting as I am very lucky to already have full-time employment as a Research Analyst.
It all has me thinking, though, how will I stay connected now that I will not be going to class and interacting with other students on a regular basis? How will I keep myself a part of the profession? In my previous career I became pretty insulated and it was hard to continue that learning process. I really want to make sure that doesn’t happen to me now, especially working in a fairly private environment.
