Published on

June 2008, I was laid off as a Digital Resources Coordinator. Six months shy of completing my Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) degree, I created a strategy that I utilized while in "Transition" that I am sharing in this presentation.

I hope it helps my fellow Librarians, and anyone out of work.

Good Luck guys:)
