It’s been a while since I last updated this blog, but that’s because life has gotten really, really busy. I’ve been loving my full-time job as a law school reference librarian, and I’ve been focusing on writing more about the profession. Since I’ve been gone (yes, I did sing that part like Kelly Clarkson, thanks for asking) from posting, I’ve been elsewhere talking about:
- the potential new frontier of makerspaces in law libraries, including as a podcast guest on The Geek in Review;
- law student engagement at the library’s reference desk;
- on-the-job learning as a new-ish law librarian;
- guiding digital natives to conduct print legal research; and
- using print legal research to help prepare law graduates for a “gig economy” (forthcoming).
I have a super long list of other topics I’d love to write about — too many topics, not enough time! I’m also in my final semester of library school, and I’m trying to enjoy the process as much as possible. In about a month, I’ll take my final Comprehensive Exam. I’m a little nervous. Overall, though, I enjoy my classes and I’m learning a lot. I never thought I’d say this, but I think I may actually miss library school once it’s over!
While I’m anxious about the final final exam, I’m looking forward to having more time for research and writing after graduation!
