Abstract Given the increasing importance of technology in library and information science (LIS), new graduates' proficiency with technology is likely an important factor affecting their ability to find satisfactory work. This article investigates technology skills required by library jobs and compares them to LIS educational standards and practices. A review of LIS curricula reveals that several programs require little or no technological skill. Nothing in the accreditation process seems likely to change this situation, despite prevalent commentary that change is required. The literature on technological competency required by job openings is then reviewed, which results in recommendations that students tailor their educational experiences to their specific career goals and focus on adaptability and LIS fundamentals to increase the likelihood of a successful job search.

Practical Experience - UNIVERSITY OF WASHINGTON, MLIS Portfolio by Elisabeth Calla Directed Field Work Rome Center Library While attending the iSchool, my first practical library experience took place in Rome, Italy at the Rome Center Library. Referred to as directed field work (DFW), iSchool students are required to undertake at least one practical work experience. During the summer session of 2008, I chose to do my first DFW abroad in a language-immersion experience. Though English was spoken at the Rome Center Library, I would be speaking Italian as I navigated my daily activities in Rome during the 4 week experience.

Disease on plants usually starts out at a low level, a small number of plants affected and a small amount of plant tissue affected, and it becomes of concern to us only when its incidence and severity increases with time. When we look at some examples of plant disease epidemics from the published literature, we not only notice that the incidence or severity starts near zero and then increases dramatically, but we also can discern some distinct patterns of development with time. For example, in Phytophthora blight of pepper seedlings (Phytophthora capsici) and Fusarium kernel rot (Fusarium moniliforme, currently F. verticilloides) of maize, disease progress is roughly linear (allowing for some minor deviations that we can consider random error).

About | Hiring Librarians I started this blog when I was a frustrated job-hunting librarian. One of my favorite job-hunting resources is Alison Green’s Ask A Manager blog. She gives great advice, not just because she’s a smart lady with a lot of common sense, but because she has worked as a hiring manager and is able to provide insight into the great mystery of how they think.
Whither the Shy Librarian? or A Dose of Realty (This board's so upbeat I hesitate, but ...) Thirty-four years ago after nearly a year of awkward interviews that netted just one callback, to a small newspaper, ruined when I cracked a bone in a bicycle fall, I gave up and entered the USPS. My father insisted I start earning something off my English Lit degree. Recent library school graduates or soon-to-be graduates' Journal
Foxylibrarian.com Saturday, March 19, 2011 Library Record as Window to the Soul I know I am breaking a cardinal rule of blogging by updating my blog so pathetically infrequently. I am continuing to suffer from post partum retardation/feeble mindedness, still forgetting matters of vital importance like zipping my fly and not leaving keys in doors. Motherhood after forty has kicked my ass. I am a spawned out salmon, Charlie after the smart drugs wore off.
