I'm a former embedded software engineer and a current library student,
trying to get up to speed on all this Web stuff. This question is not
part of any class project, but just for my own curiosity. How did you
all come to be so heavily involved in this aspect of librarianship? I
don't think it's being covered in most traditional MLS curricula, at
least not in any hands-on way, although there are certainly some LIS
programs that are getting into it in more depth than mine is.
Were you a librarian first, who learned it via classes and tutorials?
Are you a former software developer or web developer who moved into
the library world? Or was there another path for you?
