Pratt LIS653 Class Resources

Currently all resources needed for completing class assignments and in class exercises are located at the class website LIS 653 Knowledge Organization.

The syllabus LIS 653-03 Fall 2017 Syllabus has been created as a Google Doc so that readings and assignments are linked for easy access.  Plus it helps save on paper, which is a good thing for our environment.

After each lecture I will link the lecture slides on the Google Doc Syllabus for the students reference.

All assignments should be submitted on the date they are due to the Pratt LMS.

I have uploaded samples from the final project from Fall 2016 class I co-taught with Amber Billey.  We focused on the process of creating a taxonomy and the students found some great material to work with.  As you decide what to do for a final project this year consider creating a taxonomy.  I’ve made these taxonomy projects available for you here, the other projects from students in the other other sections over the years are located on the class website.  Please contact me if you have any questions.

PS:  From Sept 13-26 the documentary Ex Libris: NYPL will be showing at Film Forum!  You might want to check it out.
