The biggest project which I wrote about in previous post was the Planning, Marketing and Assessment Project (or PMA). Again I'll just say quickly that a lot of hard work went into the PMA and I'm proud of what I accomplished. I'm not sure if I will ever do one in such detail again, but I'm glad I know how to. I was surprised to hear from my professor in the final comments on my project that he thought I had too many outcomes but other than that I feel like the feedback was good and as expected. I'm excited to see how the librarian and the school will actually implement my plans.
My other course this semester was the cataloging course. I don't think I'm actually a "born cataloger" as many people are, but there were definitely certain aspects of it that I really liked. The nerdy organization personality came out in my when trying to do the cataloging exercises. I also really enjoyed writing my final paper, which was on the semantic web. It was a big topic to take on and I don't think I got all the concepts perfectly straight, but it was really fun to read and write about. As I play with my new android phone and hear the 5th grade students doing their PYP exhibition at our school talk about the new sixth sense technology I can see how this topic will begin to effect e very soon.
Overall I think it was a good semester. I can't believe I only have one more semester of classes after I finish my practicum this summer. I've got lots to do to organize my portfolio, but I think after several of the courses here and the internships I've been doing, I'll have lots of great stuff to choose from.
Bring on the summer!
