Sign-up to participate in SLA NE Day on the Job as a Student!

Day on the Job (DOTJ) is a popular program enabling students to meet with practicing LIS professionals and to learn more about working in a special library environment. The program has proven to be highly valuable to students in the past as they explore different types of work situations and possibilities and, in some cases, it has had a direct impact on students' careers.

DOTJ does not consist of a particular day or format; rather, date and time can be negotiated between the student and host. The format could be a day-long job shadow, an interview, a library tour, or in-depth conversation.

This year we are limiting the number of students to 10 on a first come first served basis, so be sure to sign up early!

To sign up please email SLA NE Student Relations Co-Chairs Jill Aberdale ( and/or Katie Glasoe ( by Friday, October 12, 2018.

Once students have been matched with hosts, an email introduction will be sent by Tuesday, October 16, 2018
