Back in the classroom

My work life has been heavily focused on ALA. With the start of the new semester rapidly approaching (um, I didn't get my summer), I'm shifting gears to add on to that work load. The opportunity to teach a 3 credit independent study presented itself in late spring. A student in our campus' Letters Arts and Sciences program is interested in a career in libraries. Her advisor and a good colleague of mine incorporated this into her degree proposal and made a library studies course part of her capstone project. So I've been working on the independent study form and syllabus to fill that academic need. I'm very excited about the project and looking forward to doing more teaching.
