A few weeks ago, we asked fellow HLS readers to join us in providing a small glimpse of what it’s like to be a library student. Round 2 of this year’s Library Student Day in the Life, better known as #HLSDITL, began on Monday, October 27th and went through Friday, November 1st.
We’d like to give a big THANK YOU to all those who participated in this year’s event! You shared your experiences in blog posts, tweets, photos, and video, highlighting all the amazing things you do while attending classes both on campus and virtually: completing internships, volunteering, working, handling family commitments, and having an active library life!
Be sure to check out the Library Student Day in the Life wiki to see how others spent their week. You can also subscribe to our #HLSDITL tweeters list. There was a significant trend of integrating various forms of media into posts this year; check out the posts featuring GIFs (examples here, here, and here) and one on YouTube!
So, was round 2 of #HLSDITL as fun for you as it was for us? Did you learn about some new and interesting library students? Have recommendations on how we can make round 3 better? Let us know in the comments below!
