Fall 2009, taught by Dr. Corinne Jörgensen
This seminar offered, to quote from its syllabus:
a historical and critical examination of the intellectual traditions and foundational literature of library and information science (LIS). Readings in seminal works [provided] a rich background and context for analyzing and understanding current problems and future trends in LIS and developing research and applications to solve fundamental problems.
Significant items completed as part of this course included:
Physical and Social Approaches to Subject Access Services in Digital Libraries, my final (and only) paper for this course. The assignment was to apply two or more LIS research paradigms (of which one was required to be the physical paradigm) to a particular research problem; I choose the problem of studying and providing subject access services in digital libraries.
A 30-minute PowerPoint presentation of the above paper, given the week before the paper was due.
