I'm doing an
annotated bibliography on the corporatization of public libraries for
501 (sort of a recurring theme with my work here so far) and then I
have to do a Request for Proposals for 505. Then I'm done my
first semester of library school. How crazy is that? Next
week is going to be busy…
– Final 503 class, should get back a bunch of assignments including my
final Reference Question and marks for our final group
presentation. Then Destressor at Grad Club where they present the Spirit of Librarianship Award.
– M&D arrive in the afternoon for a 12 day visit. In the
evening, I have my final 501 class where I'll hand in my annotated
– will probably do a bunch of running around with M&D, shopping and
local sightseeing/orientation then in the evening, we're hoping to have
the first of what might become monthly library-themed film
nights. Quinn's taken the lead on this project but is trying to
get me into an usher outfit. Unlikely!
– we have our final Lunch Bucket Speaker of the semester at noon.
It'll be a panel discussion called “Here in The Real World: Life Before
(And After) MLIS” featuring three first-term students speaking about
their experiences in the program versus what they found working in
libraries. Then I have my final class of semester is 505 at which
time I'll hopefully have my Request for Proposals ready to hand in
(though I can hand it in next week if I need the extra time – very
generous of the instructor to make this option available for the class
knowing how busy we'd all be at the end of term.) Then I might
just have a beer at the Grad Club to celebrate.
Then I'll relive high school by coming home drunk and having my parents look at me disapprovingly. Ah, good times…
