Hello! I am a first year graduate student at the University of Michigan's School of Information, studying Library and Information Science and Archives and Records Management. I have been given the AMAZING opportunity to be a part of the School of Information's Alternative Spring Break (ASB) 2014! During this trip, students like me will be volunteering their time and specialized skills to provide information services to institutions in Chicago, Detroit, New York City, and Washington D.C. For us, this is not only a great way to build professional skills to be utilized in our future careers as information professionals--this is a once in a lifetime experience, giving students the opportunity to work in such prestigious institutions as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Chicago Public Library, and the Library of Congress. Please consider donating money to fund this trip and be a part of our journey! Thank you!
