Getting ready for spring

I’ve registered for my spring semester classes. I need four more to finish the program, and since summer classes don’t seem as good as fall and spring, I’ve decided to take three next semester.

I’ll be taking Human-Information Behavior, which is more of a theoretical class; Management of Libraries/Information Centers; and Collection Development. I was tempted by classes like information architecture and digital archiving, but technology changes so quickly, I think I’ll be better off learning on the job, or taking a continuing ed class here and there, rather than “wasting” credits on them in this program.

After the three, I need just one more class. In June there’s a two week intensive 3 credit e-publishing class in London. I know I just finished saying technology changes quickly, but hey it’s London! And it’s only two weeks! And the other summer classes blow. At the end of the course, there’s an e-publishing conference where you can schmooze with other librarians and see vendors hawk their wares.

Hoepfully I’ll be able to handle the workload next semester. These past few have not been difficult, though of course at times I feel just plain lazy about it. In the spring, one class is at 3:30 on Wednesdays and my boss has said it’s okay for me to leave early one day a week, while another is on Sunday at 1, which is fine by me. I’m so tired at the end of the day, I’d rather have my evenings free. The third class is Mondays at the regular time, 6:30.

In other news, I am actually excited about voting next week. But despite all the polls and what the media is saying, I am still holding back somewhat. I won’t believe it till I see it.
