At Monday’s event, professional members of SLA shared insights from their experience in graduate school and their career, including several Simmons alumnae. The conversation featured topics such as the added value of information professionals and advocating for special libraries. The most senior member of SLA in attendance spoke about their career path and offered advice on adapting to emerging technologies.
Thank you to all students who attended and everyone at SLA New England.
We hope to see you at our next event!
