MLISTery, Inc.? What’s that all about? Does it rhyme with mystery?
Master of Library and Information Science (MLIS) + mystery = MLIStery. And yes, it rhymes with mystery.
I love mystery novels and as a professional researcher, I’m daily encountering the ways the work of an independent info pro and the tropes and methods of mystery writing and solving overlap. While I may not be solving crimes or putting myself in danger (thankfully!), there’s a great thrill in finding the answers and solutions to problems and questions.
I started this blog to share research tips and strategies and to provide a glimpse into the life and work of a professional researcher solving research mysteries.
