Something in the Wind

After about a month away, and some serious consideration, I’m back on the blog. And trying something new. For the next few months, I’ll be researching how Asian American populations have been represented in metadata and using this blog to keep track of the research process. You’ll get to see what I’m reading, how my methodology evolves, and how the research comes together. Bonus for me, I’ll have a public venue to keep myself on schedule.

Does anyone else do this?

Hopefully no one out there takes my ideas (it’s difficult to imagine anyone doing it, but horror stories abound…).

Why the change? I’d like to contribute something unique to the intellectual record and I don’t see anyone combining Asian American Studies with Library and Information Sciences. I’d like to continue to challenge myself and my audience at this blog, and to keep it interesting for everyone.

More to come soon!
