Itinerary Question


I know the course schedule is tentative, but is Tuesday the 17th a free day. This will make a difference on some of my mini-break plans. If the 17th is free, I'm going to go to Glastonbury, if anyone wants to come along.


Hello LIS grad students,

So happy to see you are posting, getting to know each other, and starting to plan for the mini-break. Last summer, Ms. Wright and I were in the UK for a conference and to prepare for this course. We took the BritRail from London to Cardiff, Wales, for a short stay then to Holyhead. Then we rode the ferry to Dublin for a short stay that included a visit to Trinity College and the Book of Kells ( On the return trip we took the ferry back, then via BritRail to Edinburgh for a few days, then back to London. We also managed a day trip tour to Paris on the EuroStar.

This year, for the mini-break, we will travel by air to Paris on the evening of July 25th. We will return to London's Waterloo Station via the EuroStar train at the end of the mini-break.

If anyone is interested in seeing the Lake District, a recommended B&B is the Rockside Guest House:

Assignments for this course will be posted on Blackboard. You will soon receive an email about accessing and enrolling in the online coursesite.

We look forward to meeting you in London.

Hadrian's Wall Hike Anyone?

I plan to hike the Hadrian Wall trail in the Lake District during the minibreak. Have any of you done this?

Text Books?

Are there any required text books?


Is anyone else still waiting on their passport? I applied for mine WELL over 10 weeks ago...
