Dr. Sandra Hirsh, director of the School of Library and Information Science (SLIS) at San Jose State University, was recently interviewed for a post on the Next Libraries blog. During the interview, Hirsh discussed what it means to earn a Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) degree in a field that is rapidly changing.

“There’s a huge range of opportunities for someone with a degree in our field, and it’s constantly evolving,” said Hirsh. “There are so many interesting areas—digital asset management, information architecture, virtual reference services, and social media." Hirsh believes there are "a whole suite of opportunities" to engage with information of all different types. As an information professional, “how you think about and apply your skills is only limited by your imagination,” said Hirsh.
