[Series] TMI #7 – Julia Skinner on Research in Library School

29/03/2011 § 7 Comments

For the second installment in this week’s TMI series, we caught up with our very own Julia Skinner to talk about why library school students should get involved in independent research. Julia has done her own independent research and has presented at conferences. Library history is one of her many research interests.
