Great start of the Week.
FYI, this week is Week 2, or Semester 2. This meams that most units are still very much in their introductory stage.
So I knew I was going to miss my first class of the week (Collection Management, or CM) due to an orthodontic appointment, but then I got lazy and slept in, missing both. Ahhh, the life of a student… Ah well. When the lecture goes online in a few hours, I will listen to it from the comfort of my own room.
So instead I am sitting in bed with my laptop and my notebook, with printed off slides, listening to last week’s lecture for Management of Records and Archives Services. Unfortunately MRAS did not have enough internal enrolments for warrant a full class, so the unit is only available externally. I really hate external units. This one in particularly, will start off with a group assignment with a site visit. Bit hard when doing external. Not impossible, but it is hard.
Anyway, as this was the first MRAS lesson, it was just a basic introduction to the unit, as well as a quick revision of the prerequisite units (Records Concepts and Practices, and Archives Concepts and Practices). Easy stuff, like, what is the difference between a record and an archive. So a printed off the slides, had a quick read, made a couple of quick notes, and filed the paper away for my personal unit archives.
