Hi all,

Please excuse any duplications. The latest all new posting in DC/SLA's "A Diverse Universe" series is brought to you by Dr. Edna Reid, an Intelligence Analyst with the Department of Justice. Dr. Reid talks about how info pros can learn about working in the intelligence field. Here's a sneak peak of her post:

"What do intelligence analysts (IA) do? How can I participate in a red cell exercise* about the use of social media in the Middle East uprisings? What are the current issues in intelligence analysis in the U.S. and overseas? How can I identify recent books about these issues and meet the authors? Are these authors available to speak at my institution? What certificate programs are available in intelligence analysis and where can I meet their representatives? If any of these questions spark your interest then register to attend a D.C. conference (June 2011) on intelligence analysis or check out intelligence.gov!"
