Open Shelf is proud to announce that our upcoming July issue will have a special theme: The Open Shelf Unconference Issue! Inspired by these participant-led and organized conferences, we want to encourage innovative and engaging discussion and dynamic topics which are dictated by contributors' interests.
In North America, a master’s degree in library science is required for anyone wanting to be a professional librarian.
But does the degree (in all of its myriad forms) provide a solid practical and theoretical foundation for doing this form of work?
We are seeking four people from the library profession to participate in a virtual panel on this topic. We want to engage with a diverse group of panellists: Soon-to-be library school graduates, as well as early-, mid- and late-career professionals.
If you are interested in being one of our panellists, please email Martha Attridge Bufton (Open Shelf editor-in-chief) at firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday, February 21, 2020.
