Reading progress update: I've read 52 out of 512 pages.
The Organization of Information (Library and Information Science Text Series) - Daniel N. Joudrey,Arlene G. Taylor

Really digging this.   The text is... larger.   Like physically larger.  The text is small enough in my other text book that I was finding it frustrating as it was harder for me to read. 

 

With bigger text here, it's much, much easier to read.  Both books are fascinating, so far, though.

Reading progress update: I've read 17 out of 880 pages.
Reference and Information Services: An Introduction, 5th Edition (Library and Information Science Text) - Melissa A. Wong,Linda C. Smith

Some updates will be weird: regular text posts, as I take this in.  I'll end up not finishing this book, at least not within this class: I'm jumping to chapter five and six next and then chapter three for a class further down the line. 

 

Fascinating what a librarian does and doesn't do and how it happened, and yet for someone who's more into fiction than non-fiction, extra dry  as well.  

 

Luckily it's about time to take a break for lunch and then we'll see how far I get today.  I have about forty pages, and some short articles to read for Monday, and I have to read one syllabus for Monday and one for Tuesday, with the teacher for the Monday class - aka, the one I'm reading this for - asking us to print out the syllabus.   All incredibly doable.

Loving it so far
Information Resource Description: Creating and Managing Metadata - Philip Hider

As mind bending, or as semantic as these books get, it could be dry.   Some of the ways things like metadata are talked about are dry: it's very much about dissecting what it is, and how to use metadata.  

 

I'm pretty fanatic about this type of logical structure, although I may not seem like it all the time.   I suck at using tags in BL, but I get upset when things are mistagged.  I just know it's a 'me' thing so I suck it up and either fix it if I made a mistake, or know that sometimes they're going to be wrong, at least from my point of view, because different perspectives.   (Or even someone just being wrong.  It does happen sometimes: if it's labeled vampires and there are none, well...)

 

Point is, I like this.
