It’s week 5, term 1, 2012. I’m starting to feel like I may have bitten off more than I can chew. I decided to take two units this term instead of the paltry one per term I did last year. What does this mean? Well it means, I constantly either working on an assignment or thinking about starting the next assignment. That’s okay. I mean for goodness sake, I finished a PhD while working full time at uni and teaching the piano after work. Surely I can do anything?
So, little bit of stress bunniness aside, I am enjoying the units this term for the most part. Unexpectedly, I am finding I am getting more out of Management Issues for Information Professionals than Collection Management so far. If you had asked me at the start of term I would definitely have predicted it would be the other way around. I’ve been wondering why this is and I think it’s that so many of the topics in Mgt Issues connect to what is going on in my real life at the moment. It’s been really useful to read about issues like change management and innovation when these are being experienced at the same time at work.
In other LIS related news, my abstract for RAILS8 was accepted. Exciting times ahead. I have sent away all my forms and registration. Now I will just have to plan to cut my 14000 word minor research project on GLAMs down to a 5000 word, 25 minute presentation. Luckily it’s not until June so I have lots of time. That’s what I keep telling myself anyway.
Onwards and upwards!
