Planned Projects

  • Developing a searchable database of national and international practicum/fieldwork/capstone experiences.
  • Providing an opportunity for LIS students who complete practicum/fieldwork/capstone experiences to share their experiences with other students and prospective employers.
  • Collaborate on one or more publications related to these efforts.
  • Working with the Events Planning Circle to plan related ALA programs and events, including continuing the Education Forums.
