end of semester!

So … just a few weeks ago I was concerned about finding an internship and figuring out classes for the spring. I’m down to three classes for the spring and may drop one more before the semester starts … The internship, however, has turned out nicely. Just a few days after I last posted here […]

what’s going on lately

coming together nicely

one of the assignments in my reference class calls for five hours of observation in reference environments … my luck with sfpl has improved dramatically: i met the assistant director of the library while she was working the information desk, and she has put me on to people in other areas of the main that […]
