One of the downsides of giving LIS students and professionals career advice is that you’ve pretty much got to follow your own advice if you want to have any credibility at all (translation from my students: “do as I say, not as I do” isn’t going to fly!).
So with that in mind, I’m following one of my key career mantras, which is to never stop learning new stuff. I decided to teach myself how to create e-books so I could share more of the webinar information I provide for students at LIS grad schools.
This is my first attempt, and trying to be fearless, not perfect, I’m just going to put it online and share it with anyone for whom the information might be useful. As I do so, however, I’ll point out that I have the design sense of a turnip! (Yep, we all have strengths and weaknesses, and design smarts ended up in the latter category for me….)
So nice to meet another design turnip – with a great sense of humour. Signed, A non-LIS person who mentors LIS persons on the business side of library management.
Yep, Mary, we design turnips need to stick together! 🙂
Wow, I’m thrilled to see this resource! I’ve been a reader of your blog for a while and just graduated with my MLIS, so I’m looking forward to reading this.
Congrats on the fearlessness, and thanks for sharing!
Thank you, Sarah, and good luck with your LIS career launch!
