The Spring Semester

A quick note to throw some ideas out there for this semester as we’re all settling into our schedules:

I passed my prelims (hooray!) and am starting on my prospectus. Years ago, myself and a few other folks used the #teamachieve hashtag on Twitter to motivate each other as we shared our daily word counts. I want to ask those folks to get involved again, but I think it would be cool to have as a bigger endeavor too. So if you want in, let me know (or just start tweeting!)

I’m going to the iConference in Berlin this March. I had an absolutely amazing time with my colleagues at ALISE, and I wanted to see if anyone will be at the iConference and is interested in going for a meal or beverage with me! 

I’m really wanting to do some arts-based research lately, but need some inspiration. Does anyone want to do a Google Hangout or Facebook group or something and bounce ideas off each other? 

Happy Spring semester!!

>Hello readers!
I thought you all might be interested to know about my guest post on Micah Vandegrift’s blog, The Infornado. He’s been doing a great series where LIS students contribute their thoughts on the topic ‘what I learned in library school.’ These posts are such a wonderful resource for new students (or not-so-new ones too!) as they help provide a variety of perspectives from a group of writers with diverse backgrounds, and give great information on how others have found their niche in their programs. Micah’s other posts are great too–he has some wonderful insights on current trends in LIS, and also created this post, which is a wonderful comparison of all the different blogging platforms that are big right now (I learned a lot from it!)
