So how has the first week of classes been? Easy? I hope so because around midterm (Oct.14), it gets rough.
Well, as U.N.T. Library and Information Sciences Student Association (LISSA) Co-Vice President, I hope you have a good year. This year LISSA plans to offer tours of libraries, talks with professionals in our field, online chats in SLIS Village, and the usual meetings. I’ll update the blog every Monday and some Wednesday or Thursday s (usually after a LISSA meeting or event).
Things have been a bit hectic this semester because SLIS is combining with Department of Learning Technologies to become College of Information, Library Science and Technologies (http://www.dentonrc.com/sharedcontent/dws/drc/localnews/stories/DRC_UNT_0822.1ef0b2e7.html), and then there is the big move! Of course, the “big move” refers to the fact that SLIS has moved out of the ISB building (in the middle of campus) and onto the spacious Research Park campus. Research Park used to be a Texas Instruments manufacturing plant, but now houses UNT’s College of Engineering, Computing and Information Technology Center, a library, a computer lab, the lovely Jazzman Cafe, and tons of parking!
UNT LISSA’s Student lounge is on the second floor, as are the classrooms and faculty offices. LISSA meets on the second Tuesday of every month. Feel free to drop by for a meeting or e-mail the LISSA website.
