Tasha’s final project

October 6, 2009

I am quite undecided about the topic of my final project.  I don’t feel that I have had enough variety among my classes so far to come up with anything terribly exciting, and I don’t have the opportunity to work with web content for a real library.  I’m not sure if we are meant to research a new topic from scratch, but I believe it was mentioned that we could re-work a previous paper for the web.  I think I will choose this option.   My most interesting paper so far was related to the origin of libraries, so I will plan to revisit this topic/paper.  Then I will try to use Krug and our assignments thus far to assess how I can break the paper up into sections more suitable for presenting on the web.  I don’t have any grand ideas so far, but I might like to go back and reread a few sources, and acquire some related images.  A visual theme that complements the content would be good too.  🙂

    Tasha: I am reworking my research proposal from 284 which turned into a paper for 298. It was on women’s reading material in the 18th c. In fact I got into the subject because of researching the origins of libraries in this country!

    Hi Lynn, it was your final project posting that reminded me of the work I did for LIBR 200. I really enjoyed learning about the historical aspects of reading and libraries. Thanks for jogging my memory!

    If you love the historical aspects of reading and libraries, you should look into taking LIBR 280 History of Books & Libraries. It was one of the most satisfying (and correspondingly difficult) courses I’ve taken to date. But I learned a lot, and really enjoyed the course. I’d recommend it if you haven’t already taken it.
