I’m Mariana Strassacapa Ou. I’m a postgraduate student at City, University of London, pursuing a master’s degree in Library Science, class of 2016/17.
This blog is all about my journey into the library & information science field, about the course’s contents and classes, and about everything else I stumble upon regarding the universe of libraries that makes me feel like sharing.
the blog itself is as initiative of the discipline Digital Information Technologies and Applications (now you get the blog’s address?), as a way to record the classes’ contents, exercise web communication skills, create a digital network for students to interact and discuss topics, and engage with the wider, digital world.
getting personal I am from São Paulo, Brazil, currently living in London. Back in the days, I studied architecture and urbanism at the University of São Paulo, and worked for three years as an architect—but in activities that were always somehow related to books, knowledge, and publishing. I have then finally assumed my real passion and decided to pursue this degree in Library Science—and been quite happy about it!
