Service Project Index and other tidbits

Posted in Updates tagged , at 8:18 am by maf

I’ll admit that I have been preoccupied with my other class and other things and look forward to returning my attention to cataloging matters soon. In the meantime here are some tidbits:

Melissa has put together our Service Project Index Page – thanks, Melissa!

The Service Project Menu had a new addition as late as last Friday. I know that there are a couple more percolating out there – this is for those of you who may not have chosen quite yet.

Our room number at the new UGA Gwinnett campus will be 119.

Buffy Hamilton has agreed to visit us on July 12 and talk about 2.0 cataloging.

Mortimer exercises: yes. Coming soon. Just read for now, if you are concerned about getting it done. Don’t do all the exercises in the book because I can see that I don’t think they’re all … important.

I am up to date on questions and have done a decent amount of assignment grading. Note: on group projects, I’ll wait until each team member has submitted reflections before grading, just so that I can keep everything together and review it once.

And – I’m pushing hard to get your Orders finally finished. Many apologies on the length of this task. Blame it on the tornado! I still am just barely managing to get the top priorities done each day (if that!)

I am thrilled to have my phone service back. (Outside, my cable and phone wires look patched together with duct tape, but things are working! Don’t hesitate to call if you feel the need.)

Quick notes:

  • I uploaded all of you into WebCT/6380. Check to see if you have access. I updated my contact info on the homepage there. The gradebook is not yet revised.
  • Nancy Andrews’ service project proposal went up on the Menu yesterday. (She is another one of our tried and true mentor alums. If you live near Athens, this is a good choice, but of course I think all of them are.)
  • As you read and work through your assignments, please send your questions. I will use this blog as one way of assisting you with them – although I will never reveal who asked the question, unless you wish. I have one of these queued up for the next day or two.
  • Finally, I worked a lot on your Order projects today from last semester. No output yet, but you will start seeing your feedback, team by team in the coming days.
