Go, Go, Go

I have been very busy over the past couple of weeks, but I have been constantly thinking of issues related to education and libraries.  Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to blog as much as I’d like as I am currently in the middle of an intensive seminar and have just started a new job.

The LL.M. course is still going really well, and I am enjoying my work, although the past week has been fairly full on. To achieve a bit of balance, I am arranging an LL.M. pub outing for tomorrow evening in my first act as class representative. I’m looking forward to getting the opportunity to get to know my new classmates a bit better.

Once work calms down a bit, I would like to get back to writing about the issues that I have been concerned with lately. Like many of my colleagues, I have more than a few things to say about volunteers in libraries! I also have some ideas involving privatization in education, information literacy instruction, professionalism, information policy, and democracy and access to information. I also read a very brief article (will try to source) earlier this week in which a teacher claimed that students should not learn to write before they start school in case they pick up any bad habits, such as holding a pencil incorrectly. Hmm… you can bet I have an opinion on that one!

Until then…


About thegreatnorthernlibrarian

I am a newly qualified librarian and law student currently living in Scotland. The name of this blog was inspired by my extreme northern location at the time of the blog's creation. Savvy readers will recognise that it is also a Twin Peaks reference. I do not necessarily categorise myself as "great."
