Other than the basic librarianship modules (referencing, information skills, cataloguing and classification, as well as research methods) my chosen options this year have been Creating and Publishing Digital Media, Information Architecture, Management for Information Professionals, Digital Libraries and The Information Professional as Educator. I’m also auditing Web Publishing (and I’m hoping to brush up enough on HTML and CSS so that I can do something nice with this blog!). My background is in English Literature and Philosophy. I’ve always had a special interest in children’s and young adult literature. I was even a teacher in a past incarnation.
These days I’m usually reading books about metadata or statistics, working out how to get the most out of folksonomies (aka procrastinating on Twitter or Tumblr) or walking my eccentric cocker spaniel.
If you’d like to get in touch with me, you can email me here or comment on one of my posts. I promise I don’t bite.
