Now I Need Students…

Public Relations created some really nice fliers and posters for the new adult computer class I am offering.  Now I need students. It will be a 3-session class. It is my hope that I will have a small group of adults that are able to meet three Thursdays in a row. We’ll start with the basics of how to use the computer, mouse, and keyboard. Then in week two, we’ll focus on the basics of using the internet, and in week three I will guide them in the use of email. This is the format that one of the nearby libraries uses for their adult computer class. I think they also include a fourth week that focuses on Microsoft Word. However, I am open to trying other class formats if this doesn’t work well here.

In other news…

  • I have a group project to organize a small collection for my class Organization of Information.  My group has decided to organize the collection of a small church library.  Our professor is concerned that the subject of the collection may be too narrow. But we think that we can make it work. We are meeting this weekend to look at the collection as a group and decide how to divide the tasks.
  • I will be visiting a local hospital in a couple of weeks to shadow a hospital librarian for the day. I’m really excited for an opportunity to see what she does up close and personal. Of course I will write about it afterward.

Library and information science is so fascinating!

      Yes, I’m excited. I enjoy attending classes, and having discussions, but the practical hands-on tasks are so much more interesting. Even though I know it is important to enjoy the experience and not rush through grad school, I cannot wait until I’m done with school and can become “real librarian” in my area of interest.
