I kind of equate my life to a series on This old house... I'm doing a bit of a makeover now.
I have a graduate degree in Library Science and Information Systems, and have started to take courses in an Interactive design and media program, at the school I work at as a systems librarian.
I've been taking classes in design and media for about a year. I would really like to transition out of library science and into the field of user experience.
I'm honestly a bit tired of being a student, but I realize I need a portfolio of projects. Is continuing to be a student the best way to move forward? I am really self-motivated, so can read and learn on my own, and have a strong sense of what I want to learn about. I read books like "Where the action is" and "Sketching user experience" by Buxton in my spare time.
Is it possible for me to make the transition? I feel like I have a good foundation, I just need to build upon it.
