On Wednesday, I'm teaching a workshop on "Data for Social Justice" (this particular class will address finding data, and I'll be teaching later ones about analyzing/visualizing and mapping the data). If you have any favorite data sources you think would be good for this, let me know!
Instruction session this afternoon. I'm explaining why we're using print indexes (CPLI) to find articles from the 1960s: "Because this stuff is not on the Internet." I'm met with stares of disbelief. #librarylife
I asked if the online course conversion workshop we're holding this summer would include anything about information literate research assignments in online environments. Woot! & *gulp* -- I've been given three hours!
I began walking and tracking my food intake a month ago. In that time I have gone from being able to walk 2 miles to 8, lost 13 pounds, 8.25 inches off my body, and gone down a pants size. Never thought I would enjoy exercising, but I love these walks and challenging myself each time I go out.
Research appointment went beyond well, and the POLS department just called to ask if I could take an hour with each of their search candidates to talk about library services and resources. Today tastes like success! And illicit Poptarts from the vending machine. But mostly success!
For the past few months, there has been a large empty box, formerly containing an exercise bike, on the landing outside my downstairs neighbor's door. It has now been replaced by the exercise bike itself.
