Last day of class, Capstones, and visit to FAL

The Information Resources in the Humanities class met for the last time. Students shared results of their second pathfinders, created for Gretchen Healy at Little Priest Tribal College in Nebraska and Heather Ball at Virginia Tech's architecture library. We reviewed class structure and the students gave me good advice on preparing the syllabus for the next time the class is offered in Spring 2007.

A number of my students gave their Capstone presentations. The students I supervised included the following. Greg Argo described the hundreds of hours he devoted to organizing the recordings collection at KVRX, student-run radio. Ann Finstad covered her work with the student liaison program in WebJunction. Angela Kille talked about the wiki she developed for reference staff training.

Library Visit #2.
I stopped by the Fine Arts Library for a meeting with director, Laura Schwartz, and Beth Hallmark, my campaign manager. Beth is ready to start her Capstone project as she nears graduation. The FAL renovation was featured in the architectural issue of "American Libraries"!
