Spring Break, Anyone?

Can you remember what you did during your last spring break? Were you sipping mojitos at the beach, or catching up on Law & Order? (Or were you slaving in a windowless computer lab trying to stamp out an incomplete?)

This week nearly a hundred students from the University of Michigan's School of Information are taking advantage of their Alternative Spring Break program, which matches students with real-world information projects. NPR was lucky to get one of these dedicated students, Li Li, who is specializing in human-computer interaction.

A week is a short time to complete a project, but Li is providing some very thoughtful analysis of the contracts we have that provide NPR transcripts to the public through commercial databases. Having this information will help us make smarter business decisions — crucial in these tough economic times. Thanks Li, and good luck in your studies!

An invitation to all interested LIS students out there, NPR offers several library internships each semester. Although the summer application deadline has passed, fall applications are being accepted. Click here for application forms and instructions.
