Job shadow placement announcement – Field Experience 1

Today I found out where I be going to job shadow for my field experience class.



My job shadowed placement is at the Durham College/ UIOT Library! I am beyond grateful and happy to be able to do my first job shadow at the Durham college/UIOT library and it sisters – UIOT Social Sciences Library, UOIT Education Library, and Durham College Whitby Library.

My top three choices for the field placement job shadows were:

  1. Durham College / OUIT library
  2. Oshawa Community museum
  3. Port Hope Archives

I really wanted the two top choices because it was convenient to ride the transit bus there and back and I locally lived in Oshawa ( I lived at Durham college residence) since I moved to Oshawa for college. Also I had experience working at a school library and I wanted to know the difference and similarities to working in an academic library. I wanted to work in the community museum because I am OBSESS with history and I love learning new information and facts. I wanted to get to know more of Oshawa history since I know nothing about the local history of Oshawa. For my third choice I wanted Port Hope Archives because I been thinking of what field of Libraries and I think I want to go into archives or into school libraries because I really love working with students and staff and information and knowledge of history.

Three reason why my job shadow would be worth it to do is so I can observe and learn from experience librarians who have learned and gather information of their years working in varieties of libraries and I want to know what it like to work in an academic library and see how different academic libraries are compare to public libraries.
