Finally a Graduate!

December 15, 2012 That is the day that I walked across the stage to receive my degree! I enrolled in my first three LIS courses in August of 2011 and went to school full-time for four semesters, while also working full-time. It was a LOT of work but well worth it. I can’t be more proud of myself and relieved that it is finally over. I have met new friends and had a lot of fun networking, and I will never forget the people who kept me going when all I wanted to do was get more sleep! 🙂 First, … Continue reading Finally a Graduate!

It takes a bit of getting used to in the beginning but overall I feel … Continue reading Week 1, Social Media for Information Professionals

Here is to a New Year!

First of all, allow me to begin by wishing everyone a very Happy New Year! I hope all of your season’s festivities were grand.  It has been quite a year.

There is a lot more going on behind the scenes than … Continue reading Here is to a New Year!

23 Things: Part 2

8. Learn about RSS feeds and setup your own Bloglines newsreader account. Ok so I tried, I did. I registered for a bloglines account and imported (very slowly I might add) a few of the blogs I read, and I must say I did not like it very much at all. I am currently using Google Reader and I am accustomed to their formatting and such, and you know what, I like it. So I think I will continue using it! But I do love my RSS feeds and reader! 🙂 What I like most is keeping up to date … Continue reading 23 Things: Part 2
