DLIS Newsletter Call for Submissions

Hello fellow DLIS students!

My name is Maddy and I’m the graduate assistant for DLIS at the Queens campus. I have been working on giving the DLIS Newsletter a makeover, and now it’s time for content and a new issue! Michael and I will be sending out a Google form later today, asking for volunteers to contribute articles to the Newsletter. It can also be accessed here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1DgM7Ogw20J3Z3vZem6nP8EuGAy9yBI7FTMJ46t_vw-I/viewform?usp=send_form

I wanted to reach out to the distance students directly because this is a great way for you guys to get involved with the department without having to come to campus! These articles are not supposed to be long, around 300 words, and there’s a three week+ timeline to submit the article, as they are due Friday, November 13th.

Here are some topics that can be taken:

  • Interview with Dr. Singh, our newest faculty member (Skype/Hangouts)
  • A reflection on an AS-L project
  • Participate in the Webinar next week (10/27) and write about it
  • Collect blurbs from new and graduating students about their experiences

Any other ideas are welcome, of course!  Please let me know if you would like to participate in writing for the DLIS Newsletter by completing the Google form, and if you have any questions, feel free to shoot me an email at madalainev@gmail.com or my St. John’s address.

Best,

Maddy


 

Hello DLIS Alumni!!

My name is Maddy and I’m the graduate assistant for DLIS at the Queens campus. I have been working on giving the DLIS Newsletter a makeover, and now it’s time for content and a new issue! Please click thru to newsletter.sjudlis.com to see the new design. By the way, all suggestions are welcome!

Next, I would like to extend an invitation to all of you to contribute a short blurb (~100 words) to the new Alumni Notes section. I know all of the current students are very interested to learn what DLIS alumni are doing with their degrees, myself included!

Michael will be sending out a Google form later today that we are using to track contributors to the Newsletter. It can also be accessed here: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1DgM7Ogw20J3Z3vZem6nP8EuGAy9yBI7FTMJ46t_vw-I/viewform?usp=send_form

If you would fill it out and indicate that you are submitting a personal blurb, it would be so appreciated! Please note that these blurbs aren’t due until Friday, November 13th, so there is plenty of time to submit.

I look forward to receiving blurbs from all of you! If you have any questions, please feel free to email me at madalainev@gmail.com or my St. John’s address.

Best,

Maddy
