While I believe that education is not something that only happens in classrooms, I have had the fortunate experience of earning two degrees from excellent institutions where I learned and grew a great deal. My masters degree is from the Graduate School of Library Science at Simmons College and my bachelors degree is in Contemporary Writing and Production from Berklee College of Music, both located in Boston, MA.

On top of the foundations of library science, such as information organization, evaluation of information services, and principles of effective management, my course of study at Simmons provided me with extensive opportunities to learn about effectively utilizing digital resources tohttp://www.simmons.edu/academics/schools/school-of-library-and-information-sciencehttp://www.simmons.edu/https://www.berklee.edu/cwp/majorhttp://www.berklee.edu/shapeimage_1_link_0shapeimage_1_link_1shapeimage_1_link_2shapeimage_1_link_3
store, organize, retrieve, and archive data. While I truly feel that I learned the most about library science from working in a library, my studies at Simmons both supported and expanded that learning a great deal.

Beyond the rigor and demands of my courses where I learned to think technically and pay attention to detail, Berklee offered me extensive learning opportunities through the nature of its diverse student body. A substantial portion of my classmates were international students who helped me learn about music and the world from a variety of perspectives. My time at Berklee put me on a path to becoming an excellent librarian in addition to the focus on music. I learned to successfully navigate various technologies, organize and manage groups of people to achieve a common goal, and effectively utilize the expansive resources available to me.Gama_Viesca_-_LIS_403.htmlGama_Viesca_-_LIS_404.htmlGama_Viesca_-_LIS_407.htmlGama_Viesca_-_LIS_415.htmlGama_Viesca_-_LIS_488.htmlGama_Viesca_-_LIS_435.htmlGama_Viesca_-_LIS_444.htmlGama_Viesca_-_LIS_453.htmlGama_Viesca_-_LIS_454.htmlGama_Viesca_-_LIS_458.htmlGama_Viesca_-_LIS_467.htmlGama_Viesca_-_LIS_469.htmlshapeimage_3_link_0shapeimage_3_link_1shapeimage_3_link_2shapeimage_3_link_3shapeimage_3_link_4shapeimage_3_link_5shapeimage_3_link_6shapeimage_3_link_7shapeimage_3_link_8shapeimage_3_link_9shapeimage_3_link_10shapeimage_3_link_11
