An assignment for LIS 6010 requires me to select an LIS leader, write a paper, and prepare a presentation complete with hand-outs. I selected Everett T. Moore, fighter for intellectual freedom and advocate for equal access.
Other than dealing with a crisis at work, I have spent my day working on the paper with hopes of having it completed by tomorrow evening or Monday at the latest which will allow me to focus heavily on the presentation.
It has been one very long day…
