A’s all the way, baby.

I got an A in my Use and Users of Info class, so it was a 4.0 for this semester, which brings my overall GPA to a 3.81. If only they had a “My daughter is an honor student at UIUC GSLIS” bumper sticker for my dad.


Dewey hasn’t done me wrong….

Yeah, I be speaking English super good today. Leave me alone.

Anyway, I thought I’d share that I got a perfect score on the Cataloguing final, resulting in an A for the semester. Go me! I’m no longer a straight A- student. I still have no word on my grade for the other class, but they’ll be posted on the web Monday.


It was nice while it lasted….

Okay, well, it wasn’t really nice while it lasted because work kinda sucks right now, but the Summer syllabi went up today. As I feared, my 6 weeks of summer school will be a ballbuster (except I don’t actually have balls).

*sigh* I’ll just worry about when I get back from Yosemite.


Dewey Decimal Time!

In tribute to one of my favorite sections of Cataloguing:

(You may have to copy and paste this; my blogging software refused to accept this as a valid url in an “a href” element.)

Ah, I love Dewey. Did you know that 910.41 is for “travels around the world?” It is. Isn’t that awesome?

I’m going to go lay down now.

Update: Phil pointed out that I should have told you what the Dewey Decimal in the video means. Well, it sadly appears to be a made up number (and I’ve never seen a Cutter (“SOB”) like that before). 616.722 isn’t in anything I can find, but 616.72 is for Ophthalmology – specifically “Diseases of uveas.” Not exactly a section with books about “American Girls,” but okay.


Three down, three more to go….

Posted by lynn on May 8, 2006 in News

I just turned in my last assignment of the Spring Semester. Three semesters down, and now only three more to go.

This one was rough, y’all, and the ending was particularly hard. In the last three weeks I had 3 Cataloguing projects, 1 Cataloguing assignment and my final Use and Users report due. I would be lying if I said there wasn’t at least one crying fit of hysteria somewhere in there too.

Tremendous thanks to Phil and Sarah for proofing everything and keeping me calm. Thanks and apologies to my friends and family since I know it seemed like I fell off the face of the earth.

Next semester doesn’t start until 6/10, so I have a month off. While I only have 6 weeks of class in the Summer, I’m hoping for a slightly easier time of it: Reference and Web Design. I’m not even going to worry about them until the syllabi are posted.
