Welcome

Thank you for checking out my blog. My name is Katie and I am currently studying an MSc in Library and Information Science at City, University of London.

Whilst I have three mandatory blog posts to write for Data Information Technologies and Applications (or DITA for short), I hope to use this blog as a space to reflect on things I find interesting in LIS.

I hope you stick around!
