The evolution of social media - Facebook

The Evolution of Social Media: Facebook

Facebook was launched on February 4, 2004. Now, 13 years later, Facebook looks very different than it did when it started! How did Facebook start?

Data Librarianship

MSLIS Internship Close-Up: Data Librarianship

Of all the iSchool’s focus areas for MSLIS students, I knew the least about our focus on data librarianship. I came to Syracuse with the goal of becoming a public librarian.

Freshman Year at the iSchool

My Freshman Year at the iSchool

It leads you to not only where the next four years will be spent, but also which opportunities will be available, before and after graduation.

Focus on Technical Services Librarianship

MSLIS Internship Close-Up: Technical Services

The fall of my sophomore year of college, I reached out to a local social-service agency and asked for an internship. I was 100% convinced that I would enter the non-profit world after graduation, and (like most undergrads) I wanted to boost my resume with experience in the field. Much to my disappointment, the agency had … Continued

When I started looking into SU’s MLIS program I was surprised to hear alumni, students, and faculty talking about all the great opportunities that exist for students to attend library conferences.
