Well, just got through the first batch of assignments for Library School, and I have to admit they were fun.Â I really enjoy getting into a topic, and even though I only had a couple of thousand words for each one, I was still able (I hope) get some nice work done.
I’m going to try hard to ognore the marks I get: the two essays are both passable, and that’s all I’m looking for.Â Solid Bs would be nice.Â If I wanted As I would have approached them quite differently (and not had opinions 🙂
The first was an essay on the relavance of public libraries.Â I gave two arguments to why they wil remain important:
- Someone needs to collect all that money from the publishers, and
- Librarians are essential in the academic conversation (a la “New Librarianship“)
The second essay was an evaluation of the information retreival capacities of www.boardgamegeek.com.Â I was able to slip in a quick reference to gay monopoly, but not Busen Memo.Â Probably ust as well.
