Q1 (first 15 minutes): If you’re a current MLIS student, which courses are you most excited about this term? If you’re out of school, which courses do you think helped you the most with your job or career?

Q2 (second 15 minutes): Whether you’re attending a conference or Webinar, which professional development topics do you consider vital for your continuing education? Which topics are yesterday’s news? What isn’t being covered that you’d like to see?

Q3 (third 15 minutes): Do you feel that library school prepares (or prepared) you for the working world? What are library schools doing to connect students with jobs? What can they do better?

Q4 (final 15 minutes): How do you see library/info science education programs changing? How do you think library education programs could improve?
