Welcome to my online portfolio! This website demonstrates how I have achieved the objectives set by Dominican University's Graduate School of Library and Information Science. The seven objectives addressed by the MLIS program are listed below. Information regarding this component of the graduate program can be found here.
  1. Articulating and applying a philosophy of service that incorporates an awareness of the legacy of libraries and information centers within our culture
  2. Promoting the professional values of ethical responsibility, intellectual freedom and universal access to information
  3. Identifying and analyzing information needs and opportunities of individuals and organizations, both within the traditional information service areas and the broader information sector
  4. Developing creative solutions to information problems by integrating relevant models, theories, research and practices
  5. Designing, Implementing and evaluating systems, technologies, services and products that connect users with information
  6. Practicing a variety of management, communication and organizational skills to facilitate appropriate change within libraries and communities
  7. Teaching others to identify, analyze, organize and use information
The navigation menu on the left will direct you to pages dedicated to each objective. Documented are various projects and assignments that I have completed during my studies to earn a MLIS. Additionally, a reflective essay and my resume can be found on the "About Me" page.
