Hello, members of LIS 9763! (If you are viewing this blog and you aren’t a member of the class, I will be very surprised.)
My name is Tabitha, and I am nearly finished with my MLIS degree, I swear. I started in Summer 2009 and I think most of my cohort has moved on to bigger and better things. I’m currently on co-op with Statistics Canada, loving every minute of it.
Social media has been flitting around the edges of meetings and discussions at my placement here, although mobile devices have been hogging the spotlight lately. Like many librarians, I am not extroverted by nature. But I can’t deny the looming presence of social networking and related applications, and their potential is actually pretty exciting!
On the personal side of things, I am currently living in Ottawa with my fiance and giant cat. It’s a beautiful city, and I can’t wait to start checking out the museums! I am practically salivating just thinking about it. My spare time mostly goes to crafty dabbling, and I own more yarn than a reasonable person should. I am also quite fond of the new Doctor Who series.
