Washington University's upcoming annual Junior Jumpstart mini-conference--held on Thursday, May 9, this year--will include a session highlighting masters programs in library and information science. A panel comprised of library staff will offer insight and answer questions about library and information science as a potential career path from 11:25 a.m. to 12:25 p.m. in Eads Hall (Room 209).
In addition to recently appointed Associate University Librarian Trevor Dawes, who comes to WUSTL after a number of years at Princeton University Libraries, and panel moderator and subject librarian Cheryl Holland, several other library staff members will also speak. They include Film & Media Archivist Nadia Ghasedi; Digital Data Outreach and Political Science Librarian Cynthia Hudson; and Evening Reference Assistant Paula Wiggam. Andrea Johnson, creative experience specialist at St. Louis Public Library's newly renovated Central Library, will join the panel as well.
The one-day Junior Jumpstart conference is open to all current WUSTL juniors. Registration is required to participate. Attendees can mix and match sessions on full-time employment, graduate school, personal statements, and more.
