I have started putting together an e-Portfolio (http://publish.uwo.ca/~sfelkar/). This is a project that students in many library school programs do- I’ve been finding a lot of examples from the University of Hawaii and San Jose, as well as many other schools, including the University of Alberta. The purpose of some e-Portfolios appears to be a reflection on library school and the principles of library and information science, while others are to act as a sort of detailed online resume. Mine is of the second sort. But I may find the time to add some reflective pieces later. I would recommend students creating one- it is a good chance to develop some basic web development skills, as well as showcasing your achievements.

Here is Hack Library School’s post on “How to Stand Out in the Job Search Crowd” which talks about ePortfolios. And here are some LIS e-Portfolio Examples:

    I wish there were gradations to the like option. This post would receive an über-like! Thanks for sharing this information!

  2. I’m glad to see that I’m on the right track; my blog is going to make up part of my own digital portfolio eventually. I’m not in for an MLIS, just a Library Tech diploma, with an emphasis on the tech, so employers are going to need something like this when I’m (finally) done school…someday. I keep finding things I want to learn! Programming is next…thanks so much for sharing!

      Great plan! and it isn’t “just a library tech diploma” you are doing a great job about thinking about your future. Good luck 🙂

      • Thanks Sarah! I guess it’s hard to feel productive as a diploma student in a sea of MLIS’s. I needed the encouragement! ❤ Have an awesome day!
