Movin' on up [Apr. 25th, 2009|12:42 pm]
Hey folks,

It's great to see an LJ SLIS community here!  I'm moving up to Bloomingon this July, and will begin at the SLIS program this Fall.  I was wondering if anyone needs a non-partying room-mate or knows of someone who will.


P.S. Allergic to cats =[

I figure this is the best place to ask this: I will (hopefully) be attending IU this fall. I have been accepted, but I haven't said yes or no yet. I've tried several times in the past week to sign up for both list-serves, but nothing happens. Do I have to wait a certain amount of time before I can get in?

Update: I just did it again, and it's working. Ah, technology.

Has anyone decided to begin IU's program in Fall 2009? I'm pretty sure I'll be heading there! I'd love to "meet" some other prospective students!

Verna Pungitore [Dec. 21st, 2008|01:42 pm]

For those of you who go back a few years with SLIS, you might want to know that Verna Pungitore (SLIS professor who retired a couple of years ago) died yesterday at the age of 67. There's a death notice in today's Herald-Times online; they will probably publish further details in tomorrow's paper. If there's any interest, I can post the obituary here when it's available.

I had L503 with her, and though she wasn't the most dynamic lecturer on earth, she was a very nice person and I'm sorry to see that she has passed on.

Party-loving library students, unite! (part 2) [Nov. 30th, 2008|12:36 pm]

So, the last one wasn't bad at all...which only means that this one will have to be better yet!

It's that time again. Because bitching about cataloging and gossiping about professors works *so* much better given enough beer and wine and whatever, I'd like to wrap up the Fall '08 term with another apartment party.

When: Friday, December 5, 9 p.m. on

Where: Parkview Apartments, 1700 N. Walnut, #304
(from downtown, drive north on Walnut, cross 17th, then make a right as soon as you pass the crosswalk and pull into the parking lot on your left. If you're all about public transportation, the #1 bus stops in front of the building, and the #2 and #6, a block away)

What: Drinking, food, music conversation, general merriment, and if there is *anything* you wanted to talk about this term so far, well, here's your chance!

Who: Feel free to invite anyone else, this is by no means limited to SLIS people. I'll try to have plenty of food and drinks on hand, but donations will always be appreciated!

For the MIS degree, is the Web Programming course the only thing that satisfies the programming requirement for the degree? Could the XML class count towards this requirement?
