I have a lot to say today, but currently I am beating back the urge to blog in an effort to smack down procrastination, as I must spend my early afternoon on this:
September 13, 2006Question: After viewing and participating in the Collection Policies class session, think about all the information presented PRECEDING this presentation, and discuss how it all impacts the development of collection policies.
DO NOT discuss the format or contents of the policies.
You are to discuss how the concepts and processes, presented in previous class sessions and discussions, affect the development of collection policies.
Make sure you do not exceed 5 double-spaced pages, maximum.”
And also a set of reference questions, one of which is:
1. A major political figure in Texas from 1938 to 1948 known as “Pass the Biscuits Pappy” (of “Light Crust Doughboys” fame) was born in another state that was also birthplace to a famous woman who was president of the first women’s club. Her last name is the same as the former president of a group dedicated to saving a particular species of mammals, and her first name is the same as the daughter of the 26th President of the United States for whom a color was named. She is the subject of a biography written by a woman who edited a column for the American Library Association. Her home state’s leading livestock product is also the last name of a quite famous woman, daughter of a prominent politician, known for philanthropy in Texas at the turn of the century, whose name caused gales of hilarity. What was her name?
I’ll be with you when I’m either finished or have quit graduate school altogether and made the inevitable decision to become a Starb*cks barista with a ridiculously large but incomplete store of knowledge about the library/media sciences.
