Loving my practicum experience thus far and wishing that I could just focus my time, energy, and effort at my site this semester instead of taking a second class. My project for the semester entails working with the library’s legal collection — the 340s — which includes resources for the area attorneys (CADL houses materials for the county law library) and building pathfinders/annotated bibliographies for the patron-base. After surveying the collection, I’ll putting together a survey for the two populations in order to better understand their information needs.
I’ve been drawing on a lot of content in which I learned from my Collection Development class (dankeschön, Dr. Holley) as well as recalling my professional experiences in working with the legal community as well as clients needing legal advocacy. I’m thrilled to be working on this project for the library!
