My last post for WGSS 320

So here I am blogging like a “pro” and three months ago all I had ever done was read other peoples blogs.  I am feeling rather accomplished at all the technical skills I have learned this quarter in Gender and Technology. I find it exciting to know the difference between a post and a page. […]

Librarians Can Help

As I continue to research for my Cultural Research Project, I’ve found all kinds of sources for my project. I’ve even found how easy it is to find something once, and then not be able to find that same source again. But fortunately, librarians are there to help. One source of information I found on […]
