End of my Research Journal

Today marks the end of my research journal, as it’s due for the final check. It’s been a fun process, and I now am kind of interested in potentially pursuing some sort of research in my career. First I need to get hired in even a full time position, though…. But some day I could see that happening.

I completed my marketing evaluation and submitted that yesterday afternoon and am ready to get down and dirty in either my Research Proposal or my Program Proposal. I’ve still been torn… I was really excited about the youth and technology research question I was working on involving mobile devices and would definitely be interested in going with that further, especially since I’ve already gathered a number of great resources on the subject…. But I also really like the program proposal and how it ties to marketing. I’ve been thinking of ways I can potentially combine the two in some way? Perhaps some sort of program that involves mobile devices to engage teens? One of the articles I stumbled upon in my research involved a program called “Library Appy Hour”  that involved sharing, discussing and using new mobile device applications. I think this could be an interesting event that would interest teens, but I’m not sure about how repeatable the event would be, or how long it could hold people’s interest. Perhaps a monthly event, or something that could be added to the TAG group as a revamp.

One of the sample papers for the program proposal wasn’t for a brand new program, but discussed revamping the current summer reading programs, so that might not be a bad idea. Hmm, now off to investigate this further!
