New Resource: Kerry Madden Author Exhibit

I’ve updated the Education and Library Services page to include a link to a virtual author exhibit which I recently created about Kerry Madden. Kerry is one of my favorite authors writing for children today. I had the good fortune of attending her book release party for Jessie’s Mountain a couple of years ago and it was a delight to meet her.  I hope this author exhibit prompts you and/or your students to seek out her work.

The School of Information Overload and Library Science

So I’ll be using this space to chronicle my journey through library school over the next couple of years, because that’s pretty much what my life is going to be.  We had orientation today, where I learned some new things and had old learnings reinforced.  I’m looking forward to the first day of class tomorrow, though I suspect I’ll have a terrible time getting to sleep tonight because I’ll be so excited.

My course schedule this semester includes:

  • Human Information Interactions
  • Information Tools
  • The School Library Media Center
  • Young Adult Literature and Related Materials

I’m also working as a Graduate Assistant for LEARN NC.

I plan to talk here about my experiences and the issues we deal with in class.  My reactions to the readings for the YA Lit class will be recorded at lectitans, my reading blog.  I don’t plan to talk about any issues I might have in my personal relationships at school, so please don’t expect that.
