As the semester comes to a close, I am reflecting back on all of the modules, assignments, posts, and projects completed. From HTML and Unix commands, to Twitter and blogging, I can confidently say that both LS 534 and LS 560 created opportunities for me to interact with technology in ways I had not prior to this semester. Each course has provided me insight into a various platforms, some that I had no idea even existed, some I had purposefully elected to avoid until it was required for the course.
All in all, my head is full of new knowledge and I am very grateful for all of the learning opportunities each class offered me. Currently, my brain is still dizzy from all of the new concepts that were absorbed (spit back out and then re-absorbed), as time wears on I know that each piece of knowledge gathered will benefit my career in librarianship! As soon as my group completes our database project for 560, I have no doubt a weight will feel lifted and I will be much more grateful for each of these assignments and what they taught me. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel, as I type this, although I am still feeling a bit overwhelmed and anxious about it all. I am looking forward to being able to breathe and fully take a retrospective look at the semester, perhaps in a week or two. 🙂
