My first two MLS classes start on Tuesday and I have been searching the Internets to figure out the best way to have an excellent semester. A lot of advice is out there on library school if you look for it and here is a list of the advice I plan to take to heart.
1. Join a student organization.
2. Get library experience while getting your MLS.
3. Utilize social networking sites.
4. Build relationships with your professors.
5. Find a mentor (or two).
To help with the last one, I’m going to attend a speed mentoring event that’s happening in October. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Do you have a mentor?
P.S. Another bonus piece of advice that I’m pretty sure Lesley mentioned was getting a laptop, and I did that this weekend.
