Yikes! I just noticed that one of the classes I was going to take is either full or not offered anymore – so now I’m in a pickle. This was what I wanted for summer: Managing Information Orgs (Info 640) Information Services in Orgs (Info 643) Library Automation (Info 664) But I’m going to have to change that because I’m going to take this in the spring: Managing Information Orgs [ Read More ]

Back in July I plotted out my entire MLIS program – but it looks like one of my spring classes has been canceled. So now I need to pick between these – what do you think? INFO 681 – Legal Bibliography Introduces the fundamentals of legal research, including sources and research strategies.

On a side note – I have also published this post in the DUSLA (Drexel University SLA Student Chapter) Newsletter that will be available next week sometime.

I submitted my last final last night. That means that term #1 is over – 3 more to go. I have a break between now and January 8th (when term 2 starts) but it won’t be much of a break. I have a ton of holiday traveling and entertaining and shopping and … you get the idea. Most importantly (to all of you) I have some catching up on the [ Read More ]
Okay, I have 1/2 a final left (which I’m stalling on – can’t you tell?) and I’m done done done! I have already gotten my grade for one class and am waiting to hear on the other one. But the point of my post is that I haven’t had time to log into Bloglines and I know it has to be loaded down with thousands of posts. I think, when [ Read More ]
