Update on Doctoral Program

I realized I hadn't said much of late about my beginning the UNT PhD program. Here's where things are:

The cohort consists of ten people: 9 ladies and me. :-) Typical for the library world, yes?

We are receiving a budgetary allotment for broadband access at home and a laptop. We received tech specs that outline how the laptop should be configured. I'm totally ready to upgrade my PowerBook but I heard that at UNT the SLIS faculty prefers students use PCs. I am waiting to chat with the director of the program down there to see if my Mac, running OS 10.3 will be compatible. I think it should be.

We will meet in Denton, TX on Friday June 11 for our first weekend of class. Here's what our typical weekend schedule will be:

Friday, 3:00pm to 9:00pm;
Saturday, 8:00am to 6:00pm;
Sunday, 9:00am to 3:00pm.

The hotel -- a brand new Hampton Inn -- has a classroom built in -- fully wireless. Nice.

I'm still trying to figure out some of the details and what I should be doing... more will come clear soon.

Watch this category for my contunuing news of moving toward a PhD!
