Mark Your Calendar for the SJSU SLIS Colloquium Series  


We're well into the start of the Fall semester, and that means the School of
Library and Information Science at San Jose State University is ramping up
its free Colloquium Series. The online seminars typically last an hour and
are accessible via live web conferencing and recorded presentations. Here's
a quick look at what's coming up:


*	Wednesday, September 19 at 12 p.m. Pacific Time - Building
Developmental Networks of Early Career Academics: An Informed Learning

In this webinar, you'll learn how to effectively build and make use of your
networks for professional growth and development. Faye Miller, PhD candidate
at the Queensland University of Technology, will discuss her current
research in how developmental networks are formed and utilized by new
professionals. Join us this Wednesday!


*	Wednesday, September 26 at 5:30 p.m. Pacific Time - Credo Reference:
A SLIS Alumna Success Story [Career Colloquium]

Representatives from Credo Reference - a leader in the library technology
field promoting information literacy and research effectiveness - will dish
hiring tips, discuss the company's culture, and highlight virtual internship
opportunities. You'll also hear from a SJSU SLIS alumna, who made the
transition from intern to full-time employee. If you're searching for a job,
or you would like to host great interns at your organization, this is a
must-attend webinar! 


All the online presentations are FREE, and everyone is invited to attend.
Please visit the Fall Semester 2012 Colloquium Series

conferencing program BlackBoard Collaborate. If you are unfamiliar with

If you missed last week's webinar, Building Blocks of Records and
Information Management, that addressed four essential elements of a
successful records and information management program presented by Janet
Ruhala Johnson of Ernst and Young, or you cannot make the live sessions
mentioned above, recordings will be available. Please visit the SJSU SLIS
