Introductions

Hi folks, to get some practice navigating the blog, and to get some formalities out of the way, please introduce yourself to the rest of the class by adding a "comment" to this post (click on the "comments" link below). Make sure to tell us why you decided to take this odd GIS/mapping and information agencies class. Cheers, GREG

Hello, I'm Leah. I just finished my first year in SLIS and I'm employed as the image archive assistant at the Primate Center Library. I decided to take this course because it seems like it will be a useful skill in future librarianing gigs... or potentially something that I could study further in the event that I can't get a decent librarianing gig and need to find gainful employment in some other way. In any case, it looks like interesting material!

Hi all. I’m Meridith, and I just finished my first year in SLIS as well. I am planning to take as many technology focused courses as I can, as I find it interesting and hope it will help me in the job market.

Howdy all - Todd here. I have just finished my second year of graduate school. I am doing a concurrent masters degree in scandinavian studies. I reckoned this class would help me to help professors as well as myself in my own studies and research, especially in studying culture and folklore in languages and literatures, to gather information about residents of a particular heritage.

My name is Lori and I'm taking this class for my interest in land, natural features, so on. I'm concurrently taking another class, so this summer is getting scary. I shall forge ahead.

Hello. I'm Paula. Sorry Greg if there's any confusion since I go by my middle name instead of my first. I'm taking this class because I like maps and a now graduated comrade promoted the course. That's about it.

Hello again. I'm Richard. As I mentioned in class I'm a new grad student in geography, which deals quite a bit with mapping and GIS. Greg promised I can use GIS to transport myself through time and space, but we'll see. I’m also hoping that GIS will prove useful for my current PA position for WiscAMP … a program seeking to increase the representation of minority students in science fields.

I also think maps are cool.

Hi folks, I'm the other Lia, as stated in class. As I also stated, I'm done with my first year of my masters in library science. I said some reasons in class about why I'm here and another reason is because I'm interested in geography and is/was considering getting a second masters in urban and regional planning. But after this first year, I don't know if I can give away anymore of my life to degrees.

Hi, I'm Soren. I'm halfway through the SLIS master's program. Despite having few, if any, technical skills, I'm very interested in technology, mapping, virtual spaces, etc.

Hello, I'm Annie and I am half way through my time at SLIS. I have always enjoyed looking at maps and am fascinated with the information that they can convey. I also have an interest in the funding of libraries and would love to be able to map that type of information, if I can ever learn the software.
