Assignment #1 Reminder

Do not forget about Assignment #1

Assignment #1 (ongoing throughout semester): Throughout the semester, monitor the news for stories relating to libraries, the Internet, or information technology. As you see, hear, or read about news stories relating to these topics, post a report on your blog about each story. Give all available citation information for your news source (website address, name of news program, name of publication, date, etc.), a brief summary of the story, and your reaction or opinion about the news. This assignment is worth 10% of your final grade. Each news story is worth 1 point (1% each). You should comment on 10 news stories. We will discuss these news items at the end of the semester. More information will be given in class about this assignment.

Here's an example of something you might comment on:
