Issue Intro: Long Time Coming

By Jessica Hernandez

It is a pleasure to present our newest issue of BiblioTech! It has been a while since our last publication, and so I am very pleased that we have been able to 'hit the ground running' this semester. BiblioTech is a wonderful resource that we can use to share information, highlight projects and build community. It can also be a way for us as University of Arizona School of Information Resources and Library Science (SIRLS) students to connect with alumni and a broader network of Library and Information Science professionals.

This current issue is focused on the theme of professional development, which is relevant to both new and continuing students alike. Many of us (myself included), are on the job market this semester, and so the article "Hard Times Job Searching Done Right" by librarians Rachel Cannady and Daniel Newton is especially timely. Their advice is practical, succinct and up-to-date given that they are both recent alums.

Conference attendance is an important aspect of professional development that is discussed by Knowledge River Scholar Olivia Baca in "2009 Medical Library Association Conference." SIRLS student Jacy Bell shares her experiences presenting at a conference in "Poster Presentation at SLA 2009: Information Accessibility and the Disability Community." These types of activities are instrumental in developing professional skills and networks, which in turn can lead to job opportunities. Many of these conferences offer scholarships for graduate students, and the U of A also has internal travel funding sources. The Graduate and Professional Student Council (GPSC) is a good resource to learn more about conference funding.

Acquiring professional experience through paid work, graduate assistantships, internships or practicums is another way to gain an edge in today's economy. Knowledge River Scholar Monique Becerril and SIRLS student Robert Talbert share their interesting summer experiences working at two very different types of libraries. Their articles "Librarians Are Still Needed: My Graduate Assistantship at the Santa Rosa Branch Library" and "An Internship at the Fred A. Hopf Library, College of Optical Sciences," highlight their experiences and are wonderful examples of opportunities that other SIRLS students can pursue. The SIRLS Internship Coordinator Karen Bell maintains a current list of internship opportunities that is available on the SIRLS website. Professor Bell can be contacted at khbell@email.arizona.edu.

Our active student organizations also offer numerous opportunities for professional and leadership development. SIRLS student Jacy Bell shares information on how to get involved in her article "Special Libraries Association- U of A Chapter." Upcoming meeting dates and open positions are outlined, and this is one more example of how we as SIRLS students can solidify our career preparation.

In closing, thanks to our authors for their outstanding contributions, and to our readers for bearing with us through our technical delays. SIRLS alum Jason Kucsma and LSO Listerv and Web Administrator Robert Talbert were especially helpful. I would also like to extend a special welcome to our students that are new this fall! Please enjoy this edition of BiblioTech and consider contributing to our next issue.

Cheers,

Jessica Hernandez, BiblioTech Editor

I'm using the internet as the only path to acheive this. I encountered a truly brilliant site that explains how to build solar panels and wind generators. The internet site explains all the steps required to solar panel construction.

    I'm not really sure about how accurate the info given there is. If some people over here who had experience with these things can have a look and give your feedback in the thread it will be awesome and I'd highly value it, because I extremely like [URL=http://solar-panel-construction.com]solar panel construction[/URL].

    I'm here online for the kids of Haiti.

    I'm doing this for a non-profit group that gives their time to

    They provide children in Haiti a positive outlook through education.

    And yes, they're legitimate.
