Summer Recap

I had a good summer. It’s strange, though–now that school is back in session, even though I grumble about the infernal Bloomington construction (my former DOT employee Wisconsinite grandpa shuddered upon visiting), it is refreshing to have IU buzzing with activity again. I think I was a bit bored this summer; I stopped blogging and… Continue reading Summer Recap

Library and Information Science: The Worst Master’s Degree to Get if You Want a Job?

Last week, a writer at Forbes magazine published an article called “The Best and Worst Master’s Degrees for Jobs.” Can you guess what I’ll write next? I certainly hope so, based upon the GIANT HINT that is the title of this post. Yes, that’s right, getting a Master’s degree in Library and Information Science was… Continue reading Library and Information Science: The Worst Master’s Degree to Get if You Want a Job?

The least helpful acronym ever necessitates a translation, so:… Continue reading LOEX Annual Conference 2012

Either Hello Spring or Hello Frenzy of Constant Activity. You Pick.

Hello blog friends! It’s been awhile. These days I haven’t been doing a lot of blogging–though, if you haven’t seen it already, I did co-write a post on digital humanities courses with Barbarajean Majewski at HackLibSchool recently. Beyond that, I’ve been steadily attacking the growing pile of work that’s in front of me. With only FIVE weeks… Continue reading Either Hello Spring or Hello Frenzy of Constant Activity. You Pick.
