I am taking LIBR 202 – Information Retrieval and LIBR 287 – The Hyperlinked Library. The first is a core class and the later is a cool class. I have a deep down desire to learn more about fundamental library services like cataloging, reference and searching. LIBR 202 and the other core classes will teach me about these fundamentals but I am constantly inspired by the Hyperlinked Library class. I come to work with ideas from LIBR 287 more so than from the core class. The Hyperlinked Library course is current, taking on topics such as participatory services which I can see needing encouragement to grow at the Del Webb. I know the fundamentals are important and the group project is fun but my other class generates far more ideas.
