Hello . . . again
Was I ever relieved to read that blog posting frequency doesn't matter anymore! Ok, I've probably taken that idea a little too far by going on a year+ hiatus. But here I am, happy to be blogging again.
After leaving UNLV in Sept '06 to head back to Canada, I started in a new job at the Faculty of Information Studies at the University of Toronto. Yearning for our prairie home, family and friends, the sig_other and I made the decision to move back to Winnipeg and make it permanent (as permanent as permanent can be for someone like me who has moved about 10 times in the last 12 or so years).
I am now working at the University of Winnipeg as the Web and Reference Services Librarian. As with my previous job at the UofW, it's a contract gig lasting until October 2008. In a nutshell, I am the Acting Information Literacy Coordinator, web services librarian (as always - straddling public services and systems: something I love), the DLI representative for the UofW (read: data librarian), subject liaison to Education, and occasional electronic resources duties as needed.
After 6000 kilometres later and a whole lot of U-Hell, I'm back in the 'Peg.
My blogging interests remain largely the same. Though I'm not working specifically with distance education anymore, I continue to be interested in and support the types of tools that former readers of schwagbag may be accustomed to reading about, namely, techy tools for communication and collaboration, technology and instruction, design and architecture, etc. Thanks to Paul Pival for giving me a much-needed kick in the pants ; )
Oh, and if you've subscribed in the past, don't forget to update your RSS feeds to the new one, as the others will soon be decommissioned:
