Twitter in Library School

15/02/2011 § 22 Comments

Last semester I took the class, User Instruction, as an elective.  For our final assignment we had to create a 15 minute tutorial on anything library-related for any type of audience.  Since over the last 6 months or so I have had a love affair with Twitter, especially since it is where I learned about Hack Lib School Project, I figured I would try to share my experiences with my fellow students; they would be my audience for the tutorial.

The Road to ALA ’11: LIS Student Tips and Tricks

09/02/2011 § 26 Comments

{This post is largely derived from these posts on my blog — for more detail on my ALA ’10 experiences, check them out!}

Last year, I attended my first ALA conference as a library school student, and it was an eye-opening experience. Of all the local and national librarian conferences I’ve been to, it is by far the biggest and most overwhelming. Here are some of my tips for staying on a library school student budget, networking, and more:

  • Seek funding to offset your expenses. ALA’s Student to Staff program has already picked its members, but ask around at your library school for other opportunities. Are there any scholarships or grants for travel at your school? Do you know anyone you can split a hotel room with (if not, ask librarians on Twitter)?

[Series] TMI #1 and #2 – Two Minute Insights

22/01/2011 § 1 Comment

We are proud to introduce a shortcast series to the hacklibschool empire. TMI (Two Minute Insights) will be a semi-regular podcast sort of thing where a member of the HackLibSchool team will call a LIS professional with one question and a two minute time slot for that person to answer. The goal is to get short, interesting insights to the life of someone working in the field, and also to move the conversation out of text and into different media. (Basically, I got tired of reading all the time, and I listen to lots of podcasts.)

Round one of TMI – Melissa Rochelle talking about what it means to be an emerging technology librarian in rural Arizona, and Andy Woodworth explaining his #andypoll series on Twitter. Listen below!
