My name is Melissa, and I'm a first year student at SLIS. I have a background in the wet sciences, and I worked for many years in Biotechnology.
I decided to pursue librarianship, and I find myself drawn to organizing and taking care of all that great scientific information. I am also very interested in what is going on in the publishing world right now with open access, journals and their paywalls and figuring out how to get the information to the people who need it.
I thought this class would be a great way to learn about the future of print, and I'm really looking forward to it.
See you all Monday!
