Hello fair readers!
You might be asking yourself…where in the world did Leah go? And if you’re old enough to remember it, you can even sing that little song from the show that was based on the PC game.
Remember that show? Sigh. Good times.
But seriously, where the hell have I been? Let me give a little hint.
Yes, that’s right. My life has basically been overtaken by grad school in the past few weeks. More so than ever before.
Because guess who is done? Just take a little guess. A tiny, itty guess.
The girl with the Information Policy book? Omg good guess. Me!
So right now, I’m in the weird period between student and librarian. Officially, I’m not a librarian until May 3rd. Yet, course work is done. Assingments…done. I guess it’s just all up to the waiting game now.
Still, I would like to share some of my final projects that I worked on this semester. I would like to think that some of these are a culmination of my graduate career. So you better believe that I’m going to share the things that have been completely taking up ALL of my time in the past few weeks.
In my resources in the Humanities class, we had to take a topic that bridged over several areas of the Humanities and then design a public piece around it. I chose to do Pride Month because I have worked at a library that has done LGBT programming before. It was widely publicized, extremely popular, and rewarding for everyone involved. Also my boyfriend works at this amazing bookstore that specializes in LGBT lit. and I really saw an opportunity to create some unique programming.

I decided I wanted to focus on free, authoritative legal resources on the Web. All you regular readers know that this is an area that is of special interest to me. Most legal resources are difficult to find, difficult to use, and insanely expensive. Legal research should not be for the few, but for the public.
We basically had to pretend we were being nominated for the Secretary of Information, a position that exists in most countries…just not the US. I tried to really narrow my policy proposals, as you can see if you watch my presentation.
There was more. Papers to be written, evaluations of presentations to fill out. It’s strange that this is now over. This huuuuge part of my life…that really only lasted about 1 1/2 years.
This is me 2 years ago…to the month, graduating from Undergrad.
Oh Leah the Library Student…you had no idea what was in store for you.
To everyone at Dominican GSLIS graduating in two weeks….congratulations friends. We made it.
