McGill School of Information Studies recent graduate Talia Olshefsky (MLIS '14) was interviewed by the McGill Library's "Library Matters" blog about her successful Practicum placement with the Library while a student in the Master's program.
During her Practicum, Talia worked with the Library’s extensive map collection, conducting an inventory and experimenting with new geographic information systems (GIS)-related tools and technologies to develop innovative ways of discovering this collection.
This article is the fourth of five interviews featuring Master of Library and Information Studies (MLIS) Winter 2014 Practicum students discussing their work at the McGill Library and examining how their experiences may help to inform Library units as they move forward with related projects.
