It’s been 2 years since I last published a post here. I didn’t mean for it to be so long but I had a massive case of writer’s block, and then got so focused on life and school that I forgot for a while that I even had a blog.
But today I remembered my promise to myself… to chronicle my adventures through library school and beyond, and hopefully to enlighten and amuse some readers on the way.
So, where do things stand right now? I am still at the Syracuse University School of Information Studies (a.k.a. the iSchool) working on my Master’s of Science in Library and Information Science (a.k.a. MS LIS) degree on a part-time basis. I should receive my degree in May 2020.
I also work part-time with Associate Professor of Practice Jill Hurst-Wahl on projects related to the new iSchool Public Library Initiative (more on this later).
I’ve made it through the following classes:
IST 511 – Introduction to the Library and Information Profession
IST 605 – Reference and Information Literacy Services
IST 613 – Library Planning, Marketing, and Assessment
IST 618 – Information Policy
And I’m currently taking:
IST 616 – Information Resources: Organization and Access
IST 635 – Collection Development and Access
I’m not sure yet how often I’ll be blogging, but my tentative plan is once a week or so.
Here’s to a fresh start!
