It has been two years since I was invited to interview as the assistant professor and manager for Knowledge River. As I reflect back on that day, I was inspired to share a memory. Since teaching would become one of the parts of this job, I was asked to give an hour talk for students and faculty. I focused on my experiences and what brought me to Knowledge River. The one part that was more inspiring to me was asking the participants to write one one about what Knowledge River meant to them on a card. At the end of the hour, I gathered the cards and created a "KR" visual of all their words.
A Vote in Favor of Joining Student Organizations
Hi. This is year two for me. I was fortunate to be one of the last to take Tom Wilding’s boot camp 504 class. At the time it was killer, but like most things, after it was over, the best memory was that it was DONE! Not completely true. 504 is the foundation and throughout the rest of your studies at SIRLS you will remember many topics covered during this important class. So take a deep breath, smile and know that everything being covered is useful and that everyone presenting wishes you each success.
As my studies are approaching to the final months of this semester, the SIRLS program has been such a wonderful experience in allowing me to learn about the diverse fields of library ad information science. During these past two months I have been working as the library/media assistant at an elementary school. Although it is very different from my past job at the Arizona Health Sciences Library, I have learned many new skills.The students are a very diverse population ranging from Hispanic, Somali, Afghani, Turkish, Russia, Romania, African, and so many more ethnic groups.
My name is Anne Spire and I am in my third semester as a SIRLS student. I feel very fortunate to be involved in Knowledge River and to be a part of Cohort 13. My fellow cohort members have been very supportive, friendly, and encouraging towards each other and me. It has been a great experience to make new friendships in KR and in my graduate assistantship.
Hello, all! I’m Andrea, and this is my first semester in SIRLS and as a Knowledge River Cohort 13 member. I guess you can describe me as a nontraditional KR member- I am a distance student and I am not participating in a graduate assistantship.
