My name is Erin and I am a graduate student working towards a MS in Strategic Communication through the Hall School of Journalism and Communication at Troy University. I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Music and a Master of Library and Information Science both from the University of Southern Mississippi. I work as a librarian, but have always had a keen interest in the field of communication and media. I am interested in learning more about how these two fields intersect. Both fields are currently analyzing where the future is headed in relation to offerings: Should everything be solely online or is there still a major need to provide a wide amount of print resources? How should we advertise these resources? What impact is social media having on these fields? These are just a few questions I hope to answer.
I have created this site to chronicle my thoughts on readings and other assigned lessons for my class, COMM 6630, Strategic Communication and Emerging Media. Each week I will post a new discussion related to communication and media. I hope that you enjoy reading my weekly entries and I look forward to reading your feedback.
