Executive Summary


SLA2015 Ready to Go

Ready to go at #SLA2015

This website contains artifacts that demonstrate my competency as an information professional as required for the Masters in Library and Information Science (MLIS) at Dominican University (DomU) in River Forest, Illinois. Each section shows the complete set of competency requirements. As a degree requirement artifacts are provided for three (3) outcomes in each goal category. I created the artifacts while enrolled in the DomU Graduate School of Library and Information Science. My artifacts result from required or elective coursework, from special projects in volunteer roles (such as an Association program), as an extension of coursework as my professional and social media presence progressed. Several outcomes have been updated with recent publications and accomplishments earned post-graduation, however updates aren’t comprehensive.
