Well team, I did it. I now have a Masters in Library and Information Science. I am currently experiencing a mix of emotions, mostly excited and proud, with a small hint of nervousness for what comes next.

It's been a couple of weeks since my Library Instruction class Skyped with academic librarian Maria T. Accardi. I'm still fangirling and continuing to think about how the work I do is inherently feminist.
