Do you want to get a headstart on making yourself noticeable, employable, competitive before completing your MLS degree? I want to encourage today’s MLS students to join me in the 23 Things for Professional Development challenge. I started my new library blog as a way to stay connected to libraryland. 23 Things for Professional Development is a ‘self-directed’ tool that will help me continue in my journey in librarianship by teaching how to use Web 2.0 tools to engage my audience and think critically about important topics. It will also help me to organize my lifestyle as an information professional. I am very excited about this journey and look forward to meeting others who are on the path to improving their lives professionally. Stay tuned for more to come as the journey next Monday, June 20, 2011.
