My Coming Out: The Development of My Librarian Identity

Posted by lindyjb on March 8, 2009

This is a video I created for my LIS 5313 (Design & Media Production) class. One of our major projects was to create a digital story based on a specific experience in our lives that has importance to who we are. I chose to create a video based on the evolution of discovering my “librarian identity.” I used my previous life graduate experience in Student Personnel in Higher Education (i.e., fancy word for Student Affairs) by incorporating student identity theory. Loosely based on Cass’s 1979 model of sexual identity development, I created four stages of figuring out that I was (well, I want to be) a librarian. I tried to incorporate a light-hearted, humorous tone.

Information Literacy (Video)

Posted by lindyjb on February 28, 2009

This video is from a study on how undergraduates seek information for research. I came across it by way of The Participatory Library Starter Kit. University of Washington iSchool faculty Alison Head, Mike Eisenberg and David Nasatir did the study. All three lead Project Information Literacy, a large scale study about early adults and their research habits.

Education & Technology

Posted by lindyjb on February 10, 2009

A friend of mine posted this great video about education and technology on her Facebook page. I wanted to pass it along because I think you’ll enjoy it.  It will open your mind about how fast our world is changing. It reminds me a little of the “College Mindset List” that Beloit College puts together every year. As an educator, I love reading this list every year because it gives me perspective regarding the college students I work with. This video does the same thing for me.

President Obama signs the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act

Posted by lindyjb on January 30, 2009

For LIS 5661, we have to write a “government document” story, detailing a bill as it becomes a law. I have chosen to focus on the Lily Ledbetter Fair Pay Act. Today it was signed into law!

As I work on my govdoc paper, I’ll be sure to share the interesting documents, testimonials from hearings, committee reports, etc that I find.

Government on YouTube

Posted by lindyjb on January 18, 2009

The government is on YouTube. Check out their welcome message, starring Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV), Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH), and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).

I’ve had a chance to peruse through the Senate and House YouTube sites and really like what I see. You can click on a state and a bubble pops up with the Senator or Congressperson’s name. Click on the name and you can see their channel. Of course I checked out Oregon Senator Ron Wyden’s page (or “channel”) and was able to read all about him, learn about his interests, constituents, etc and watch plenty of videos. I think this is a pretty cool way to learn about our government officials rather than soley reading about them.

It looks like a few officials don’t have channels or sites uploaded yet.  (Curiously, I checked for the state of Illinios to see if Roland Burris had a channel yet but I realize he was only sworn in last week so I’m probably getting ahead of myself. I notice new Oregon Senator Jeff Merkley doesn’t have a site yet either… it’s probably too early).

Flip Video

Posted by lindyjb on January 9, 2009

Ooh! We got a flip video at my office. I brought it home to try it out. Not bad quality, though the director could have done a better job! I think Casper did a good job though – she is quite the actress.
