Why “Hyperlinked” Infoeduc8r?
Welcome to my website. The first half of the website name pays respect to a class I took while at San José State’s iSchool. The Hyperlinked Library was a class offered by Professor Michael Stephens in fall 2016. Each student had to create their own WordPress blog to post some of the assignments and to interact with one another. I decided to keep my blog and turn it into this website. I have embraced the term “Hyperlinked” as part of the title because of its description, paraphrased here: the nurturing of connections and conversations as well as the embracing of participatory learning, transparency and change. I strive to attain all of these actions in my library practice.
I have used the moniker ‘infoeduc8r” since becoming an information literacy librarian back in 2004 and so I have chosen that as my URL for this site.
This site is currently showcasing my Post Master’s Certificate Assessment of Learning Outcomes from San José State University’s iSchool. The original blog from the Hyperlinked Library class is also listed on this site.
Origin of graphics: In June 2017, I visited the land of my ancestors for the first time. Many of the graphics on this site are from my visit to The Republic of Ireland. I was so inspired by the beauty of the countryside (and the libraries of course) that I felt the need to share them here.
Go raibh maith agaibh as cuairt a thabhairt ar mo shuíomh gréasáin. Translation: Thank you for visiting my website. (Irish speakers: I welcome any corrections!)
