I go back to watching this little gem of a video of librarians “doing Gaga”, featuring students and faculty from the University of Washington’s Information School, every few months to remind me of how much I love librarians:
Now that I have finished my first semester of my MSc, the video is not just amusing, but I get (at least some of) the references! Much of the content reminds me of the curriculum at my own university: last term was all about searching catalogues and databases.
The antelope prints must refer to the somewhat famous question: Is an antelope a document? We did not discuss this directly as part of the MSc, but still I have come across Michael Buckland’s much-referenced paper several times by now. If the question does intrigue you, I suggest you read his paper:
BUCKLAND, M.K., 1991. Information as thing. Journal of the American Society for Information Science. 42(5), pp. 351-60.
First and foremost though, do enjoy the video!
