I see a lot of folks are talking about RefWorks this week, since our assignment is due next week. I admittedly got a lot of work done on it the first week of school, but I’ve slacked a little bit since then — I started to find sources from Google Scholar, noticed that it doesn’t load complete information all the time, and I’ve been dreading coming back to it.
Guess I gotta go back some time, right?
I read some frustration from some folks about the tech class, and I hear you!! With my weddding a week and a couple of days away, I’m a little worse for wear right now! But we will get through it! That’s the only option!
At any rate, even though I’ve been quiet this week, I’ve been around. (Has anyone else? Haven’t heard a peep around here!) I’ll leave you for the weekend with some good bits I read on the Interwebs this week:
- Why Closing Libraries Might Be the Best Thing (Right Now) — Agnostic, Maybe
