Class notes for Monday, January 31

Welcome to the spring 2011 semester and to LIB1201, Research and Documentation for the Information Age. The .pdf version of the syllabus is ready, and I will distribute paper copies on the first day of class.

Copies of William Badke’s Research Strategies, the textbook for this class, are available for sale in the college bookstore have been ordered but have not arrived in the college bookstore yet. A copy of the book is also on reserve under the call number Z710 .B23 2008. An eBook (downloadable PDF) is available for $6 from the publisher’s website.

By our next class meeting on Wednesday, February 2, you must create a WordPress account using the email address that you wrote on the sign-in sheet. Once you have created your account, I’ll add you as authors to the blog and you can begin blogging. Your first blog post, a response to the assigned readings, is due on Wednesday. See the blogging guidelines for more information about blogging for this class.
