hack library school

16 Feb

Check out my post over at the Hack Library School blog — it documents my day this past Monday and discusses how I manage my time as a student while working full-time.  And while you’re there, make sure to read all the other blog posts.  Hack Library School is a great resource and discussion space for library and information science students.  The mission:

The Web is our Campus.

This is an invitation to participate in the redefinitions of library school using the web as a collaborative space outside of any specific university or organization. Imagine standards and foundations of the profession that we will create, decided upon by us, outside of the institutional framework. Ideas like the democratization of the semantic web, crowdsourcing, and folksonomies allow projects like this to exist and we should be taking advantage of it. What will the information professions be next year if we define it for ourselves today? If we had a voice in the development of curriculum, what would that degree entail? This is our challenge to you; participate or come up with a better idea. How would you hack library school?
