The instructor, Tony Castelletto, has been programming on one platform or another since the late 1980s. He received his MLIS in 2008 from Drexel University. Tony has worked on unusual information projects throughout his career starting as a technician on small NASA missions, managing the information pipelines that carried data from satellite to ground. He also worked on the NSF Net as a Network Engineer. Tony received his introduction to Library Science working as a programmer on Digital Library projects for the University of Michigan’s Digital Library Initiative. Following his library science education, Tony curated data collections for the Linguistic Data Consortium, where he also helped produced electronic dictionaries in Yoruba, Mawukakan, and Tamil.

This is an online class that is taught asynchronously, meaning that participants do the work on their own time as their schedules allow. The class does not meet together at any particular times, although the instructor may set up optional sychronous chat sessions. Instruction includes readings and assignments in one-week segments. Class participation is in an online forum environment.
You can register in this course through the first week of instruction. The “Register” button on the website goes to our credit card payment gateway, which may be used with personal or institutional credit cards. (Be sure to use the appropriate billing address).
