I wanted to further my opportunities and accomplish something I was proud of.
While earning my degree, my greatest supporters were:
my parents Ken and Susan, my sister Lacey, my grandmothers Louise and the late Marian, and my very understanding boyfriend Chris and my patient friends.
While in the program, I met classmates from:
all over the country, and in some cases international places. Which provided great insights from everyone. Particularly in the cases of various regulations and standards in the recordkeeping fields.
What I liked best about online learning was:
the flexibility of the schedule. Which led to being able to expand my professional experience. Such as through work and internships.
What I enjoyed most about my experience at the SJSU School of Information was:
being able to see everyone's different experiences, in order to learn how to solve particular problems. As well as having the creative freedom to apply what we learned to a variety of projects.
I plan to use my degree to:
help cultural institutions thrive in a digital access-based environment with digital preservation methodologies and the adaptation of appropriate policies to do so.
Now that I have completed the program, I'm most looking forward to:
obtaining my archivist certification and utilizing the skills I learned in this program, to promote safe recordkeeping and open access in whichever environment I find myself in the near and far future.
