I did less reading for pleasure this month than I normally might have. I was focused on my final project for Doing Things with Novels class at the CUNY Graduate Center, where I am now nine credits away from a master's degree in digital humanities. My project partner Lauren Kehoe introduces our project with this post: Doing Things with Novels: Final Project (aka Catalogers as Authors, Metadata as Annotation or how Jenna and Lauren used ZineCat to write a paper using catalog records).
My readings were surprisingly pleasant:
Jessie Lymn - The Librarian-As-Insider-Ethnographer
Mark Alfino and Linda Pierce - The Social Nature of Information
The "surprisingly pleasant" is no shade on the authors; it's on my being an anti-intellectual neanderthal who can't deal with academic writing a lot of the time.
