It's mid July and I'm half way through the summer. It's been a crazy summer semester also where I taught three courses and commuted between Kent & Columbus every single week. The two sections of online Foundations is over. There's nothing like being on call 24/7 for 5 straight weeks. Oh my aching fingers. With two weeks left to go in my Preservation Management course, I finally have time to think about my fall semester. I'm crazy, I know it, but I'm teaching Rare Book Librarianship online. We'll see how it goes.
AND, I'll be exploring east coast libraries, archives, historical societies & museums, historic preservation programs, digital humanities, and whatever else is interesting. Follow me at http://mbkcons.blogspot.com/ This is my 'quasi-sabbatical', a well-deserved, long-over due opportunity for me to explore the world of cultural institutions and decide what I want to do. In the meantime, I'm continuing to teach for Kent State University SLIS in every mode and medium possible. The challenge is always there.
Books beckon and the sky is blue. Time to be productive and learn something new today.
