It’s a more stressful than normal day here at GSLIS…registration starts for the spring semester. People are very tense, hoping to get the sections they want (because who really wants class on Friday afternoon?). Registration is done completely online, so everyone sits at their computers, refreshing the screen until it lets them register at their appointed time. Times are randomly assigned, but students further along in the program get the earlier times (that way, if you need something in order to graduate, you are pretty much guaranteed to get into it).
Clearly, I wasn’t too stressed this year because I forgot to register! Oops. I had a great registration time, at 9:10 this morning, but it wasn’t until I saw someone’s twitter status at 10:00 that I remembered it was registration day. Luckily, I hadn’t waited too long, and I had no problem getting into any of the electives I wanted. I even had my choice of which time slot for my required class.
So to satisfy the curious, my classes for the spring semester:
LIS 471 – Photographic Archives
LIS 440 – Archival Access and Use
HIST 571 – Seminar in Early American History
