Registration Day

Well I’m all registered for the summer, my final semester in Library School.

  • LIS 2405 – Descriptive Cataloging
  • LIS 2970 – Library Instruction
  • LIS 2772 – Public Library Management
  • LIS 2546 – Business and Economics Resources and Services

Unfortunately there just aren’t any tech related offerings this summer. My advisor even apologized for that fact, blaming it on changes in the way contracts for professors work. Oh well.

On the bright side, it does give me a chance to cover more of the “library basics” and branch out a bit. I’m a bit disappointed that I can’t get the Digital Libraries specialization on my degree, but nothing I can’t live with. In order to get the specialization I’d have to stay another semester, which would be prohibitively expensive.

The schedule itself is going to be somewhat unusual. From May 9 until early June, I’ll have just one class that meets regularly. The other one that kicks in that early is apparently taught mostly online.

In early June, I add a third course. Library Instruction meets on four weekends – Friday nights and all day Saturday. Sort of a pain but it sounds like a great course.

Later in June I pick up the last class as a twice weekly offering. So summer’s gonna start out easy and build from there. I’d prefer the other way around, but it doesn’t sound like anything undoable.
