Illinois ConnectionAfter completing a Master's degree in library Science in Arizona, I accepted a job with the University of Illinois Chicago library. I ended up as a medical librarian, working at MacNeal (Berwyn), Northwest Community (Arlington Heights), West Suburban (Oak Park), and finally Central DuPage (Winfield) Hospitals - all told, over 30 years in the Chicago area.
