On Friday, March 17th, I took the final oral exam required for all UH Manoa LIS graduate students who chose not to do the thesis option. We were given a list of questions in advance to choose from, and asked to present based on a particular track/area of study. No notes were allowed, and any citations made (some are required) had to be memorized.
The exam was a good exercise which provided a platform to reflect upon my education over the last 2.5 years and present it to a board of 2 faculty members. In addition to coursework, I drew upon my experiences at various internships, working in the Pacific Collection, and looking for other resources when I needed more info. I took the archives exam, and am happy I passed.
Dropping Mad Library Science!
Here is where I write about everything library and archives related going on.
