I realize that I’ve seriously neglected this blog — I have been writing, it just hasn’t been here.  Here are some of my past posts over at Hack Library School:

What I learned from the peer review process

Tips for your job or internship application

Questioning the Final Research Paper

Say what? Things I haven’t learned in library school

This summer and fall, I’ve decided to focus on research I’ve been meaning to do for a while.  I feel that very little literature on archival history exists, especially compared to the amount out there on library history, and I’d like to contribute what I can.  My plan is to research historical archivists of color — who they were, what work they did, what obstacles they faced, etc. — and I’ll need all the help I can get!  Once I have a better defined focus (e.g. time period, definition of archivist), I’ll definitely put a call out for names and all the resources I can find to learn about these individuals.  Please feel free to go ahead and give me any suggestions.

hack library school

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?
