I started this blog as a way to communicate directly with library science graduate students and new professional librarians. I am disheartened at times when I hear about things that MLIS programs are (or are not) teaching and envisioned this blog as a kind of end run around that nonsense. (Don't misunderstand me. I think there's a lot of good going on in some library science graduate programs. However, there is a definite disconnect between what some are teaching and what I do everyday as a professional librarian.) Here's the blog post I wrote in which I explain why I'm doing this.
