Welcome to the July 2011 SLIS Descriptor!

Dear fellow students,

In this issue of the Descriptor, we bring you an opportunity to get to know your 2011-12 ALASC officers. Check out what we’re reading this summer and learn more about us and what’s on our bookshelves:
  • Have you ever wondered what success actually smells like? Alison Leonard shares her experience touring the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising’s Library where she was given a chance to sniff out their unique perfume vial collection.
  • Considering an internship? Pat Oey discusses her internship experience at Atherton Library in San Mateo County. Learn why LIBR 294 is such a valuable class and how it can benefit you as you work towards your MLIS.
Lastly, please remember to visit the SLIS Networks page to find connections in your geographic area.  If there is no group in your region, start your own and email the editor to have it included.
As always, we welcome your feedback and submissions and wish you well in your studies as summer semester comes to a close and fall semester rapidly approaches.
