Sneaking into the back of Dr. MacCall’s class

Steven L. MacCall, Ph.D. teaches courses in medical librarianship at the University of Alabama’s School of Library and Information Studies…and I am jealous of his students.

He has uploaded a bunch of his course presentations to Slideshare, including this one, introducing Consumer Health Collection Development for his LS 534, Health Sciences Librarianship:

It isn’t the same as actually sneaking into the back row of his class, but it’s still pretty neat.

  1. I’m currently in my 3rd course with Dr. MacCall (Metadata). His ppt presentations are great. Maybe you can talk him into sharing a few more of them.

  2. Hi Pam!

    I haven’t ever met or spoken with Dr. MacCall, and don’t know if he reads this blog- any chance you’d talk him into it on behalf of distant MLIS students everywhere? 😉

    I keep hearing good things about Dr. MacCall from both students and colleagues- and he is clearly putting a high priority on familiarity with new technologies. It seems to me that y’all are very fortunate to have him.

    I’m not joking when I say I’m jealous. I’d love to study with a tech-savvy medical librarian.

  3. I don’t want to speak for Dr. MacCall, but I know he reads your blog because he recommended it to me. And, I have my MLIS from the UA and Dr. MacCall was one of my instructors there at the time. Now that I am working, he continues to be my instructor. I think he is a tremendous addition to the faculty at UA’s SLIS. I actually appreciate what you both do. So, thank you.
