Assignment # 1 Email Set-up

Google LAUSD MY MAIL accounts are great because they are not blocked here on campus. Also, you can access the digital library databases from home. If you need to do class presentations or upload documents you can take advantage of "Cloud Computing" and do all your work online using google docs. You can also upload files using google docs.

Set up your LAUSD MY MAIL account
Enter your temporary password.
Check out Google docs, sites and calendar.
Send me an email:
After you use your temporary password to log in, you need to sign in to a totally different location to change your password to something permanent you can remember.
If this is confusing, watch the Screencast "How To".

The following students already have an email account and just need to sign in:
Patricia, Maria, Johanna, and Christina ****
***If you have never used your account, please request a reset and I will give you your userid and temporary password.

If you forgot your password, you will need to request a reset!

Send me an email so that I have yours! my email:

Class Requirements!

Welcome to the Fall Semester. Take a look at the calendar for September. These assignments are designed to give you some choice, but also to focus you attention on some issues related to information, technology, and literature. The basic requirements for all student librarians are:

  1. You must read. Student Librarians should be well read people who can make recommendations to both teachers and other students. In the 8 weeks that make up the first half of this semester, you are expected to read about 4 books. Now, if the books are 800 pages long, then obviously you will read less of them, right?
  2. You must read at least one book per week. (see Authors list under Important Documents). I don't care which book by that author you read, but I want you to experience some high-quality literature and this is one way to go about it.
  3. You must blog. Every day, every week 15 minutes. One blog post per week can be about whatever you like. One must be a response (a complete and thoughtful response) to the prompts on our class calendar (again, under Important Documents).
  4. You must help maintain the library. Help customers, keep things neat and clean, etc.
  5. Each Student will be assigned a shelf to maintain.

That's it. Not too tough, right?

Welcome back. I look forward to reading your blogs this semester!!!!
