Hey there! Welcome to the new Community at Tame The Web where San Jose State University SLIS students are welcome to gather, chat, and write their own blogs, create their own groups, and look around the forums. Students from Michael’s classes at Dominican University are also sharing this space.
This is a place to talk about what interests you in library and information science. Ask yourself: “What do I have to say about LIS?” I’d gather you’ve got more to say than you really know…
Additionally, think of this space as a place where you can really create a growing professional product like a portfolio to share with your peers and potentially employers.
As a community site there have been some community-geared features built-in like:
- Site wide activity (think Facebook wall)
- A member directory
- Collaborative groups
- and a list of site blogs
There’s a heck of a lot more that you’ll discover like your own Twitter-like activity stream and the opportunity to friend and message others on the site. That’s a lot of space to reach out to others and make connections.
There aren’t too many “rules” on this site, we simply ask that you respect yourself, respect each other and respect the space.
So what are you waiting for? Go get yourself an account and a blog!
