As of today (9/7) I have completed two key parts of being a new grad student: I completed the residency (8/12 - 8/16) and this past Sunday I submitted my (short) final essay for LIS 500 (The Information Lifecycle). So I thought this would be a good time to blog about some of the highlights so far.
Five days spent at the beautiful UW campus. Lots of information crammed into a short period of time, not the least of which was the brief 90 minutes of instruction from the Head Librarian at the Suzallo Library (which is a beatiful building). Not enough time to bond with other members of my cohort (I'm slow to make new friends as it is). And yet, you leave with an excellent sense of what the program is about: it's heavy on the theory yet manages to come back around well thought-out practical applications.
