I graduated on May 3, 2011, with a Master of Library & Information Science, obtained through the online degree program at Wayne State University School of Library & Information Science in Detroit, Michigan.
I decided to pursue a library science degree because I worked in a public library, as well as because many archivist positions require a library science degree, rather than a history degree (or want/prefer both).
Here I am showing off my newly-minted Wayne State University ID card at orientation in April 2009.
