We got to compare and contrast the way different digital libraries format and scan their books. I’m disappointed that I won’t be in next week’s class when David Gwynn teaches it!*
*Digital Libraries alternates between Wednesdays and Thursdays. I’m in another class on Thursday nights.
This image of Rapunzel by Henriette Sauvant for Rapunzel and Other Magic Fairy Tales just made my heart pitter patter. My dear friend Blondie was the first to nickname me that (I have about 42″ of hair which is almost 73 miles of hair!)* when we were in the 8th grade.
I’ve made a promise to keep my hair till I graduate from library school (7 months and 1 week from now), but sometimes it’s fun to fantasize about very short hair or ankle length hair.
110,000 hairs since I’m a brunette
X 42 inches
/ 63360 inches in a mile
Have I mentioned that I’m really glad we’re moving into talking about more “hands-on” stuff in our notes and class discussions?
We discussed arrangement a bit as well as the plan for the upcoming projects. I’m glad that I can more of less use the same personal collection for my archives project as my digital libraries project. Go, me!
These are from the class presentation that I missed since I was in another class!
(The class meets on Elluminate so I can watch the recording later)
I’m not 100% certain on this paper, but it kills multiple birds with one stone. :-)
I’m beginning to think that I don’t even remember how to properly write a compare and contrast paper.
I’m glad to finally be learning practical things instead of more theory!
Enough theory! On with the action!
Though really, it’s time to write this 3-5 page paper comparing different archives. >_>
My main comment is that those chairs were very hard and left me sore. (notes)
As coordinator of the graduate assistants, Nancy Poole, has decided that we’ll have professional development workshops every two weeks. The first one was on Excel.
This week’s class was about logo design. Unfortunately, Inkscape took longer to install than I thought it would, so I didn’t have it ready in time to participate. So, Thomas and I came back to my house to make lasagna together instead.
