#HLSDITL, Round 2

18/10/2013 § 30 Comments

We would like to invite all library students to participate in round two of Library Student Day in the Life from October 28 – November 1. Our first round in March 2013 was a smashing success with seventy students participating!

We hope this project, which will revolve around a community of students sharing each day’s experiences for a week, will help prospective students learn what library school is actually like and connect current LIS/IT students with those in other programs. This is a great way to discuss what you’re learning, where you’re working, and all the details that make up your unique library school experience.

Want to participate?

  1. You must be currently enrolled in an LIS program.
  2. You must be willing to document your day or week through a blog, Twitter, Flickr, YouTube Channel, or other web-based means.
  3. You must sign up on our wiki so we can follow your week, too.
  4. That’s it! More than anything, we want this to be FUN.

We hope you’ll consider participating! Head to the wiki now to sign up. Send any questions or feedback to hacklibschool@gmail.com.

Our first post was written by Annie and Micah and covered Information Architecture. This time around Annie and Rebecca take on reference. « Read the rest of this entry »

[Series] Declassified: Information Architecture Edition

04/04/2011 § 10 Comments

Welcome to the inaugural post of our Declassified series. This series will feature two writers laying out the basics of one class that is similar at two different schools. The point is to allow interested students to get a peek into the coursework that the MLIS offers, and also to serve as a checks and balances system for our programs; is your Metadata course the same as mine? Why, or why not? This is one way that we can actually attempt to open up the curriculum of library school and discuss it. Hope you enjoy – feel free to add comments reviewing the featured course at your institution also.

If this is an alt-LIS area that you might be interested in check out this bundle of apps/sites to check out curated by Micah.

Annie and Micah are happy to present “Declassified: Information Architecture Edition”
