    Glad you liked it, Chia! We love that Harry Potter, Beauty and the Beast, and Buffy incorporated libraries so prominently. We also just really love the shows/movies/texts themselves. 🙂 Thanks so much for listening!

    Hey guys,

    Great video, great podcasts and great blog. It’s fun to get a little taste of how FIMS is the same and how it’s different four short years after I attended!

    Any jobs on the horizon for either of you as new grads?

    Hi Jason!

    Yes, I boggles me how things will change in a short time. Once FIMS moves to the new building on campus, things will feel different again!

    Job wise, we have some interesting opportunities… hoping once we recover from this week, the calls will start rolling in. 🙂
    Thanks for commenting!
