    Enjoyed getting to know you now just a bit by looking over your blog as part of thing 1 in 23cpd. I stumbled on it a bit late so am still lagging a bit. I chose to look at your blog based on the name, but had no idea that you would also have an interest in medical libraries. The first blog I checked out was Musings of a Medical Librarian because I’ve worked in a medical library at a teaching hospital now for 20 years. I started there as a volunteer when I was getting library experience so I could apply to library school. My best to you in all your pursuits.

    Thank you for stopping by! I’ll be right over to check out your blog too. 🙂 I don’t write much about the medical library experience yet, because I haven’t started specific classes for that or have any work experience in that setting yet. But more info will be coming!

    I enjoyed reading your blog. I’ve been writing to my students so it’s great to see a student who is writing to other students about the library science school experience.

      Thanks for stopping by! I started this blog just to document my progress in the journey towards being a librarian. I’m so happy others are benefitting from the information I have to share.
