Hello LIS 879! I am a second year distance student, planning on finishing up in May 2014. Writing this (my first ever blog post) I am amused to note the changes in technology since I was an undergraduate. It was not until college that I acquired my first email address. And only halfway through college did I finally get around to owning a CD player.
As can be guessed from the above technological confessions I had a long spell separating college and now. In between I’ve lived in four different states (physical not mental), gotten married, held five various jobs and now have a five-year old son. However I was thrilled to note one constant between undergrad and graduate school. While a young student I learned the power of chocolate-covered Oreos to solve any stressful situation. Have a paper due? Oreos. Finals week? Oreos. Roommate issues? Oreos!
So here’s to Digital Libraries: slightly intimidating new technology to master but still excited to be learning it all.
And yes, I’m going to go eat some Oreos right now.
