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
(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!"
