Book Blogger Hop for September 16, 2011: 09/16/11

Book Blogger HopThis week we're asked what we use for our profiles. It so happens that for the web usability class I'm taking, I had to write an introduction. To make things more interesting, I had to show my introduction in the context of different interfaces I use on a regular basis. That meant changing my profiles in a lot of places. I decided I liked the new profile statement so much, I'd keep it.

For anyone who is interested, here is the introduction:

Sarah Sammis has more than ten years experience as a web designer and web producer. She has worked at Oracle and Applied Materials. She has a film degree from the University of California, Santa Barbara and a masters in critical studies from the University of California, Los Angeles. While at UCLA she learned web design. She is currently a Library and Information Science student at San José State University and an intern at Cushing Library, Holy Names University, where she is cataloging their K-12 collection. She is also an active book blogger, freelance artist and micro-blogger.

When I first went online, I tried to keep my book blogging anonymous because I was working professionally as a web producer. I didn't want to get my online fun in the way of my online work.

In the last year, though, I've been an MLIS student. Librarians are sort of expected to talk about books. Obviously not all librarians work with books, there are other things that can be cataloged and archived. But I'm hoping to be a librarian who works with books in one capacity or another. Therefore, it makes since to market myself online as an MLIS student.

Also, if I want to network, I have to be less anonymous.

Wow cool, I've been curious about what a Library Science major entails. I'd love to work in a library but there are no schools nearby that offer that degree.

The program I'm attending is done completely over the computer. I have classmates all over the world.

I like the intro. I'm going back to school in Jan for my MLIS degree and am looking forward to it. Thanks for stopping by Pawing Through Books.

I'll be graduating in May. I hope you enjoy working towards your MLIS. I certainly have.

I agree about anonymity,one things blogs do is bridge the gap between the internet which some see as dangerous and scary. I have had my credit card snagged a few times, once years before the web was popular and it all by random number generation. I do worry about reviewing what I do and being on the board of a children's charity. Hmm

I didn't realize some librarians don't do books. Do you mean manuscripts and periodicals? Do you go to BEA? There is one in LA at the beginning of November.

Your CV is fascinating and impressive.
Thanks for dropping in. I am an old follower.

There are so many things that can be cataloged and cared for such as: manuscripts, periodicals, electronic materials, antiques, props, dolls, costumes, jewelry, old technology, music, movies, tv episodes, and on and on. I've had my credit card swipped too and it was never via my blog. I have never been to BEA but I do participate in Armchair BEA, the virtual answer to the conference.

Good intro. :) I'm always tweaking mine because I'm not 100% happy with it, lol.

I tend to write it and forget about it.

Very understandable. I like the intro. You include the right amount of information. Thanks for stopping by!

Thank you. I'm glad you stopped by.

You're living my dream! In a few years, I hope to enroll in San Jose State's distance learning MLIS program as well. I attended the ALA midwinter conference this year in SD, and it was such a tease for me. I will be there soon! Good luck with your studies, and thanks for visiting my site!

Pussreboots

If you have any questions about the program, feel free to email me.

Sounds really professional. So far I have also kept my book blogging anonymous from my real friends, they are not that bookish. So that's why I use my nick name "Kero" which is not known except my family.

I have friends who are barely online. They'll never find my site. My mother and mother in law both read my blog.

Thanks for stopping by. Usualy I don't like long introductions but this is understandable :).

I don't have the intro on every page so it's not taking up a lot of space.

Anja Kasap

I like your introduction - it's very professional! I might try to create a profile somewhat like that soon. I'd love to catalog a collection, that sounds fascinating.



Comment #20: Monday, September 19, 2011 at 11:32:13

Pussreboots

Cataloging is a lot harder than it sounds. Once you get used to the call number scheme you're using and the databases it becomes mostly routine but there's always a few oddballs to confuse matters.
