For many, the field of library and information science and the Master of

Science in Library and Information Science continue to be misunderstood. In

a time when the public still pictures graduates of MS-LIS programs to be

solely bespectacled book jockeys, our graduates are working in new and

fascinating roles, on cutting-edge projects.



*Beyond the Stacks* is an interview podcast in which librarians,

archivists, and information science professionals talk about the coolest

experiences of their careers, and the unexpected ways that one can use a

Master?s degree in Library and Information Science.



The show premieres with two first episodes ? one focusing on user

experience research, and one on data librarianship.



*Beyond the Stacks* will release a new episode *on the first of each month*.

Episodes can be streamed or downloaded at beyondthestacks.info, or on

iTunes.



*Beyond the Stacks: Innovative Careers in Library and Information Science* is

an outcome of the project ?Educate to Innovate: Re-visioning Library and

Information Science Education.? It is part of a National Forum Planning

Grant funded by the Institute of Museum and Library Services. Focusing on

the importance of leadership and cutting-edge skills in LIS education, this

project represents an opportunity for ?evaluating and implementing relevant

curriculum focused on innovation, continuous learning, and critical

engagement within a global context.? The grant is being led by Dr. Eileen

G. Abels, School of Library and Information Science, Simmons College along

with partners Dr. Linda C. Smith, Graduate School of Library and

Information Science, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and Dr. Lynne

C. Howarth, Faculty of Information, University of Toronto.



During the grant-supported forum titled ?Envisioning Our Information Future

and How to Educate for It,? forum participants agreed on the importance

of promoting awareness of the ?cool? careers one can pursue in this field

in libraries, archives, museums, and beyond. This podcast is one way of

supporting that endeavor.



The MS-LIS can lead graduates down a variety of exciting paths, paths that

many would not have associated with the field of library and information

science. *Beyond the Stacks* aims to make those paths more visible for

established librarians and for those considering entering the field. You

might think ?I didn?t know that you could do that kind of work in library

and information science!?
