This is the conclusion to which I have arrived in the course of my studies for LIBR 287-The Hyperlinked Library. Yes, it is a play on the title of David Weinberger's book titled "Everything is Miscellaneous." I sometimes feel overwhelmed when I think of all the different components in my life. I am a mom-wife-student-teacher-librarian. My life is divided into compartments: home, school, work. As I reflect on the main components of my life, I realize that most elements can be placed into one of three overlapping categories. The pieces of my life do not exist in silos. When I stop and look for the connections, I am able to see them.
Everything is undeniably linked and can be categorized. This should not be surprising to people working in the field of library and information science. The goal is to recognize the connections and apply the information to all relevant areas. Creating time for reflection is critical to this process. This infographic is an attempt to visualize the connections.
