Great Turnout for E-Porfolio Event

We had twenty-one people, including four alumni, come learn about how to create an e-portfolio for marketing yourself in the job market. Thanks for the great turnout!

If you are interested in taking Ellen's e-portfolio class it is offered, free of charge, fall and spring semesters to SCU students and alumni. Watch the KateWay News. If you were unable to attend on March 8 you will soon be able to download the handout of e-portfolio resources from the SCU MLIS Web site. Watch for it on the Events Archive page.
