Words of Wisdom for New iSchool Students

Compiled Michelle Wong, MLIS 2008


When the Silverfish staff asked our peers what they wish they’d known as a first year iSchool student, the responses flooded in. One piece of advice that resounded throughout was the need to gain practical experience, whether through a job or directed fieldwork (which requires much advance planning). Enjoy the deluge of tips! And let us know which you find most helpful.




Many thanks to Jamie Hancock, Chelle Batchelor, John Larson, Zola Maddison, Joshua Daniel Franklin, Mark Bardsley, Lisa Fraser, Kate S., Bo Kinney, Joel Pierce, Sonya Sutherland and all of the anonymous students who offered their words of wisdom.
