So what do I do with that MLS?
Yesterday, the folks in my UNT Cohort had a little email discussion. Someone was wondering why they should attend library school and had asked one of the cohort for insight. Links and articles were exchanged in that cool librarian way. It really ties in well with a discussion we had last night in my LIS701 class about job description and pay. Here are some pointers from that exchange:
