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 was showcasing my Post Master’s Certificate Assessment of Learning Outcomes from San José State University’s iSchool. I have some remnant pages left throughout the 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!)
