In my ever-abundant spare time, I moonlight as a master’s student.
Yep, I’m getting a Master’s Degree in Library and Information Science. I’m focusing on archives and information organization. I’m a little over halfway done with my coursework.
What does this have to do with memory keeping? Everything, actually.
It’s really interesting to see how my experience as a memory keeper affects my opinions on information management issues. Conversely, I’m learning a lot of concepts that really apply to scrapbooking.
Here is something I learned in my Records Management class this semester:
The value of information is directly related to its accessibility.
I couldn’t agree more. Consider photos locked away on your phone or hard drive. Keepsakes in a closet. They mean so much more if people can look at them.
On that note, I just finished my finals for this semester. I can’t wait to have more time to scrapbook!
