Here we go. This email just went out to the folks at UNT.
Michael Stephens – Dissertation proposal defense
“Who are the Blog People? Librarians and their Motivations for Authoring Weblogs”
Monday, April 16, 2007
First, I defend. If successful, I will then write the data analysis of the “Blog People” qualitative data — 238 responses fron the Biblioblogosphere. Wish me luck.
Update: Sorry folks, I didn’t make it very clear. I will be defending the proposal via teleconference. I will be in a conference room at Dominican with my notes, proposal, bottles of water, tea and other realted items. Joining me there will be Dr. Kate Marek, one of my outside UNT committee members and my faculty member at Dom and my grad assistant Brian Want. My other outside committe member, Dr. Jude Lewandowski, will be in Indiana. Finally my UNT Chair, Dr. Brian O’Connor and my other UNT member, Dr. Linda Schamber, will be in the room noted above on the UNT campus.
I will blog about it on Monday afternoon!
