First things first...
Hello Readers of my Blog!
I guess we'll start with introductions. My name is Anita Shankar. I am a native of the Midwest, I grew up in the Chicagoland area and completed my Bachelors in Psychology and Speech Communication at the University of Illinois. After graduation I worked for almost 2 years at a law firm before realizing I had no interest whatsoever in the field of law. I began volunteering at my local public library and realized my true calling, needless to say now I'm here at SI!
My specialization is currently LIS (Library and Information Services), although I am very interested in ARM (Archives and Records Management), and I'm also really excited about all the programming and technology classes that SI offers. So who knows what specialization I'll end up having when I leave.
I’m only about 3 and a half weeks into my career here at SI but I think my knowledge will be valuable to you nonetheless. I’ll have fresh insight into the goings on here and I went through the application, orientation and admission process not too long ago.
So feel free to email me with any questions, concerns, thoughts, ideas, or insights you might have and I’ll try my best to have an answer and if I don’t I’ll find someone that does!
I hope to hear from you all soon!
