7 Library School Lessons

On the ACRLblog, Melissa Mallon posted 7 important topics she was thankful for learning in library school.

I think this list is pretty sound.  I would add my own suggestions with:

8.Understand the importance of self-promotion and marketing your value to libraries.

9. Be aware of new technology and ways to expand your library services.

10. Recognize the value of professional organizations and local networks.  (I guess this relates to the Networking point, but sometimes we miss out on the existing mentors and groups that are right around us.)

If you have any other thoughts post them as comments and keep this conversation growing.
