Bibliolinks: Orphan Black comic books and more

It’s finally Friday! This summer is speeding by.  I am excited that my summer class is almost over.  I’m also happy that my internship application was officially accepted yesterday by the school for fall semester.  I had to write learning outcomes and it was a little challenging trying to put into words what I hope to learn from the internship, but I ran them by my site supervisor and she made a couple of suggestions that added more detail and they were accepted without problem by SJSU.  I’m also starting to prepare for a big special studies project that I am doing in the fall, which I’ll talk about a little closer. It’s an archival project and I’m really excited about it.  More soon!

Here’s some links for the weekend!
