I had my first class of the Spring semester, Introduction to the Academic Library, last Wednesday evening. With only 7 of us enrolled, it’s more like a seminar, size-wise. We all started together in Fall 2011 in the large intro classes, but we’ve been in different combinations of classes since then. It’s a good group for a small class, I think!
One of our assignments is to lead an hour-long class discussion. In an effort to get things over with, I signed up to lead the first one, this coming Wednesday! Yikes!
Meanwhile, thoughts are with my Aunt Tina Baker‘s family, as she passed away on Friday in Bar Harbor, Maine. The funeral’s tomorrow, and I want so much to be there. One of her daughters is director of the Bass Harbor Memorial Library, and so a memorial fund is being set up there in Aunt Tina’s name. Since she was an English professor, it’s so fitting! RIP, Aunt Tina.
