I am going back to college AGAIN (my history with higher education hasnt been the best) and although I dont even have an undergraduate degree (or even all that close to one) yet. I have been thinking about what I want to do when I get one.

I am pretty set on getting my bachelors in Computer Science (I have been doing technical support and computer work for about 10 years now, and that is how I will be supporting myself thru college)

I really like doing "research" I like looking up things and finding out about them, I like libraries, I like the idea of being an "Information Professional" I am also pretty sure I dont want to work as a Public or School Librarian. The "alternative" librarian career that has peeked my interest the most is what is called an "Information Broker" but being a corporate librarian or something else where I get to spend the bulk of my time researching would be good to.

My question is this, Is a MLS the right track for me? Even if its not precisely the right track, is it pretty close?

Thank You

Actually, you should probably look into the Informatics program. It's an Bachelor's degree, and it sounds like it might be more of what you're looking for than the MLIS.
