“ I am still enjoying the successful completion of my PhD; taking time to relax, renew, and refocus. ”
“ The uninitiated often assumed that undergraduate students were at the bottom rung, but undergrads were the paying customers, or at least their parents were. And paying customers needed to be kept happy. Grad students worked for the school as teaching and research assistants--TAs and RAs--but weren't really proper employees, and as such they weren't entitled to the benefits that, say, a cataloger in the Coffey Library received.

[close] This is a group for students taking courses in Salem State University's LMS grad program. All are welcome, regardless of official matriculation or current career.

If you would like to be a moderator, please let me know! Also, this group is private but not secret. Please feel free to invite your classmates in other Salem State LMS courses.

[close] Professor Mary Wilkins Jordan founded the GSLIS Book Group in February 2011. Its purpose is to bring GSLIS students together once a month for something the vast majority of us enjoy - reading and talking about books - while also giving us a chance to practice readers advisory and other skills that librarians can use. This semester we are trying a new format. Rather than focusing on one book per meeting, we will focus on a theme! How does it work? Each month, we’ll select a theme and suggest a few titles based on that theme. At our monthly meeting, we’ll start with a discussion on those books, but encourage everyone to bring your own book suggestions that incorporate the theme. If you cannot make the meeting feel free to post a note on the forum!

[close] This group is for students in graduate school who love reading in their (nonexistent) spare time ;) !! Come and share you favorites + currently-reading recommendations, and if there's enough interest, we can even start a book club of our own! :D
