MLIS, 2011, Wayne State U.

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.

Lisa Rickey Wayne State University MLIS 2011I 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).
