I was just scanning CNN for the latest news of the day and a headline about the New Fall TV Shows popped up. And since I don’t watch television, I decided to give my “Fall Preview” of my classes! Here they are:
LIS 522 — Collection Development
LIS 531 — Catalogs, Cataloging and Classification — online course
LIS 560 — Instructional and Training Strategies for Information Professionals (my last required class! yes!)
LIS 598 — Genres for Adult Readers — with Nancy Pearl
INFX 502 — Database Concepts for Information Professionals — online course — description
If you’d like a brief description of these classes, try this, or leave me a comment!
— Here are three hopes I have for this quarter —
(although they do not necessarily have anything to do with the classes I am taking)
- Practice giving booktalks and writing annotations — I’ll do this in the genre class!
- Learn how to create ‘things’ in MS Access. I know how to pull the data and organize it, but I don’t know how to create it… and I think that when I’m able to do both, it’ll be helpful on a resume or in an interview — hopefully INFX 502 will help me with this.
- Find a way into working/volunteering/interning at a public library
There you have it! My “Fall Preview” is complete. No need to surf
the channels, I mean course list… I’ve got it all planned out.
