The show is wonderfully charming, exploring storytelling through printmaking, clever little sculptural objects and collage. The subject of the exhibition focuses on the artist’s experience during a residency in picturesque Brigus, Newfoundland where six weeks out of the year they invite artists and…

The final assignment for my first semester of online MLIS is to write an essay inspired by This I Believe, a project that’s been going on since the early 2000s where members of the public write short essays on “the core values that guide their everyday lives”. In recent years, selected essays from the project were featured on NPR and…

Library Life, MLIS By October 31, 2016 Tags: , , No Comments

Some big things happening this week! Not only is tomorrow Halloween, but it also marks the first day of a new stage in my ever-changing library life. After a year and half of working full-time at the busy downtown library, I’m making the move to part-time in a much smaller community library in the north end of the city. This…

With my first assignment completed and submitted to the MLIS universe, I’ve had a day or two to catch my breath before starting in on the next onslaught of projects and readings and feeling like I’m on an intellectual treadmill. It’s not that the content is all that difficult to comprehend, it’s my ability to focus. When the semester started…
