How Online Learning Ruined Classroom Learning For Me (but in a good way!)Genneaux

Wed, 08 Jan 2014 19:30:37 +0000

I can barely stand sitting in a classroom anymore. There are other people there! I have to sit in a chair that I don’t own! I can’t noisily slurp ramen noodles! I have to wear pants! Learning how to learn in an online environment was one of the best things that ever happened to me. […]

Breathing Life into an Old BlogGenneaux

Hello, blog! It’s been so long! I’m actually amazed that I remember my WordPress password. This blog is hereby dedicated to the Post-Master’s Certificate in Library and Information Science program at the San José State University School of Library and Information Science (or, ‘my new certificate program’). If anyone is still following this blog, waiting patiently for […]

Sending out an S.O.S.GenneauxConnect with COD

I’m preoccupied with style. Over the past year I’ve spent a lot of time making posters, fliers and branded emails; selecting icons that will become shorthand for various projects and communications; tweaking Microsoft Office tools to the best of my ability in order to make text visually appealing; browsing page after page of Creative Commons-licensed […]

My speech for the Phi Theta Kappa Induction CeremonyGenneaux

Fri, 23 Apr 2010 16:08:24 +0000

April 22, 2010 College of DuPage, Glen Ellyn, IL I was going to begin this speech with something speakerly like… “As Thomas Jefferson wrote: Information is the Currency of Democracy”.  This sounded like the perfect lead-in for a speech that would touch on Phi Theta Kappa’s Honor’s Study Project:  The Democratization of Information, as well […]

In 24 hours I’ve heard two news stories that are more or less unrelated except for the overarching theme of content access.  Both reminded me of how Access with a capital ‘a’ seemed such a hot-button issue during my first semester in Library school and how in my current daily life it has since come […]

Google Sites SuccessGenneaux

Three academic years, three different tools and finally a web content creation tool that paralegals can use to make an online portfolio. First, there was Weebly— extremely easy to use with it’s drag and drop formatting. The wide variety of themes appealed to the paralegal students (especially when compared with PBwiki 1.0– the other option […]

Library Secret: Lingo and Secret HandshakesGenneauxLibrary hand signal

Fri, 16 Oct 2009 19:16:56 +0000

We’re a little late hopping on the National Information Literacy Awareness Month train, but after an official announcement from our dean on the Library blog and to faculty and staff via email, I thought that de-lingofying the term might make a good Library Secret.  Nearly a decade of restaurant work (in every front-of-the-house position from […]

Finding your print card is the least of your worriesGenneaux

Tue, 13 Oct 2009 14:46:53 +0000

Our superstar student worker, Dave Hoffman, and our Resident Librarian, Karla Aleman, have managed to make a library service video that is both informative and entertaining. I suspect dark magic, but I’m not complaining. The video is ridiculously awesome. more about "Finding your print card is the least …", posted with vodpod

Usage statistics? Can’t wait!Genneaux

Tue, 15 Sep 2009 20:47:30 +0000

We just wrapped up our two week, 29 session Library Orientation experiment and now it’s time to gather the evaluations, compile the statistics and report out.  Will I use a spreadsheet?  A handout?  A PowerPoint presentation? After seeing The Unquiet Library’s August Monthly Report, I think I’ll use Animoto.

Library Secret #1: It’s all about Library CardsGenneaux

Wed, 09 Sep 2009 16:01:37 +0000

I’m rethinking Library Secrets this semester– there’s going to be a lot less paper, but I hope a lot more online content.  Perhaps I’ll even get around to that Library Secrets podcast I’ve been dreaming about? In the meantime, the first Library Secret of the semester:  Your Library Card Says VIP on it Somewhere.
