This guide was created by Gene Springs last semester. Unfortunately for us, he has moved on to another position. I am filling in for Gene as your LIS liaison, so please feel free to contact me with any questions you might have. As you know, the MLIS program at SCI is one of the top ranked in the country; and as a recent graduate, it holds a special place in my heart. I look forward to working with all of you.
Dear Incoming MLIS Students:
On behalf of the University Libraries, I would like to welcome you to Rutgers, one of the nation's leading public research universities. You have now joined the distinguished body of students and faculty at the School of Communication and Information (SC&I). As the Liaison Librarian to the Library & Information Science department, I look forward to working with you while you are pursuing your degree. I want to make sure that both your academic and personal experiences at Rutgers are fulfilling and rewarding.
This Guide is designed to help you start your academic work, wherever you are. Consider it as a work in progress since I will be updating it at least once a semester. At the same time, you can help me to enhance the quality of the Guide by sending suggestions and comments so that, together, we can improve its usefulness.
At any time if you need consultation or have questions, please do not hesitate to contact me by phone or email. Welcome aboard!
