Focus group for "What are you expecting from MLS grads today"

What are you expecting from MLS grads today?

As part of its ongoing assessment activities, the Graduate School of Library and Information Science (GSLIS) at Simmons College has asked Claudia Morner of JMA Consultants Incorporated to conduct a series of focus groups to learn what employers of graduates with a master's degree in library and information science want in new employees. The question
she will ask is "what should recent MLS graduates be able to know, do, and think about?"

Opinions gathered at the focus groups on student outcomes will be presented to the faculty and dean of the school and will help ensure that the program meets the changing needs of library science employers.

One focus group will be conducted in Western Massachusetts on July 17th from 2-3:30 at GSLIS West office located at 19 College Street, South Hadley, MA.

If you are interested in attending and sharing your thoughts, please contact Claudia Morner at to signup. She will confirm your registration and send you driving and parking directions.
