Welcome to My SJSU SLIS Assignment Blog!

I’m currently a student at San Jose State University School of Library and Information Science. One of my favorite things about the school is how quickly they embrace and encourage technology and platforms in the classes. Many of my classes’ assignments were projects that included creating a blog or wiki for the class.  This blog contains or links to all of those assignments categorized by

Library 265 Materials for Young Adults

Reading YA

My Materials for Young Adults final project was to make a database of 50 items (books, movies, games, etc.) for young adults. Each item was to be discussed using as many of the 11 potential categories as applicable, including critical evaluation, curriculum ties, booktalking ideas, and challenge issues. I really enjoyed this project and I’m proud of how it turned out. This particular assignment is hosted on Blogger.

Library 280 History of Books and Libraries

Manuscript Study of Bodley 264
Book Study of Missouri Yesterdays
Library Study of Kansas City Public Library

In History of Books and Libraries, there were three large projects –  a study of an illuminated manuscript, a study of a book printed prior to 1940, and a study of a library from its inception through 1920.  Each project thoroughly studied many aspects of the topic.  It was so fascinating to take such a detailed look at each item.
