(Very belatedly!) Nicole guessed correctly right off the bat after my last post. I’ve moved to UIUC to work on my MLIS (Master in Library and Information Science). I’ve been so frustrated with job hunting and trying to figure out what to do for the rest of my life. The answer finally came to me via Ravelry. Yep.
After working for a while as a volunteer editor, helping Ravelry with its pattern and yarn databases, and after reading some comments in Ravelry groups posted by library professionals, I began to realize that LIS could be a good fit for me as a career. So I researched the field and several programs. I chose to go to UIUC because the job/practicum/internship opportunities seemed really good, and I was interested in both the Data Curation track and Special Collections Certificate program. And so I’ve been here for over a month, and it’s going pretty well so far. :)
I still knit, definitely. I’ll try to blog once in a while now that I’ve gotten more settled in this new place.
