Hello! I'm Jess (she/her), an academic librarian in Illinois. I'm interested in research methods, and how people - especially graduate students - learn to do qualitative work using technology () or not.

I've learned so much from following folks that I'm looking hoping to find some of that community elsewhere.

Other, non-work interests include: , and

online conferences 

The online conference I'm attending this week has had a pretty good number of scheduled presenters for both posters and papers just...not be there. I noticed this last year too, but I've only ever attended this one online. Not sure if it's an online thing or if folks end up being unable to attend?

I'm on my second cold like thing in two months after not being sick in two years. 😷

raving about awesome students 

Today is the last day of the course I'm co-teaching, and as much as I'm ready to be done with the semester, it's a bit sad. The grad students are doing such great work, and we've got a huge range of projects, from a huge survey to an ethnographic project.

I got to evaluate undergraduate research posters today and it was such a delightfully normal bit of academic life. And such good work. My favorite was a group working researching inclusivity efforts for our local parks district.

Both of the grad assistants in my library who are graduating next month have jobs that they are excited about! 😃

musings on library instruction 

Today is my WFH, ostensible "research day" but I agreed to talk to a business grad course about qual data analysis and NVivo.

I don't think I've ever taught a business course in any of my time as a , even when I was doing more general reference and instruction.
