My name is Jennifer Macaulay, and I am a recent a graduate of the masters of library science program at Southern Connecticut State University. I decided to return to graduate school in mid-2005 and was accepted at SCSU in November 2005. I graduated from the program in May of 2008. My actual diploma arrived in late July. 🙂
I started this blog in September of 2005 as a way to document my time at SCSU. It has grown into so much more than I ever could have expected. I consider this blog to be one of the best things to come out of my graduate school experience.
I currently work full time as a Systems Librarian in a library at a small undergraduate institution in southeastern Massachusetts. I have held this position since January of 2000. From July 1998 until December of 1999, I worked as a library systems technician. From June 1994 to June 1998, I worked as a Government Documents assistant overseeing a depository collection. This is where I developed my love for SUDOC numbers. I got my start in libraries as a work-study student where I checked in and shelved periodicals, processed Government Documents and worked in the college archives. I am interested in technology and how it impacts library operations and services especially web-based technologies.
