iSchool Career Blog

Each week, I published 1-2 blog posts for San Jose State University iSchool's Career Blog. As part of the Career Development site, my posts covered a myriad of career topics, including interviewing, conferences, networking, social media, and more.

Training Packet

In another class, I created an online course on filter bubbles. My intended audience is graduate students enrolled in either an online or on-campus MLIS program. These two modules teach users what filter bubbles are, how to pop 'em, and how they relate to information professionals.


Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry

I created an online book report on this classic novel for History of Youth Literature. I thoroughly enjoyed diving into themes and historical context, as well as exploring the Library of Congress' collection of Depression era photographs.

I’ve created images and infographics for class assignments as well as marketing images for the Career Blog and for East Palo Alto Library. In the past, I've used Piktochart and Canva, but I'm always open to mastering another product!                                            

Programming Plan

For our final project for Programs and Services for Children, my group designed a 12 Month Programming Plan for a pseudo-fictional children's library. We created a website full of programs, storytimes, a budget, volunteer plans, Summer Reading Challenge details, and more.

Food & Photography

My former blog, Short & Sweets, is no longer updated, but it's still live and full of delicious recipes and assorted other posts. I wrote regularly and worked hard to improve my photography skills.                 



Research Study

I co-wrote and co-presented a research paper: The Impact of Professional Associations on the Careers of LIS Professionals. It was published by the Special Libraries Association; the paper, our slides, and a recording of our talk are all available.

HTML & CSS Stylesheets

I took a web design course, INFO 240, in the summer of 2016, and it gave me a thorough grounding. Our final project was building our own website using HTML5 and CSS stylesheets. One of my biggest takeaways from the class is the importance of accessibility for all.
