I found I was running into mental barriers when trying to create the resource guide for the Business Analyst classification, so I decided to put it aside. I started work on creating a guide for a classification I'm a little more familiar with: the Human Capital Management Manager. This is the classification I was in when I was the HR Manager at the State Library of Ohio.
I made some progress, although I was still having a hard time finding resources. Nicole, my practicum supervisor, gave me some tips to try. One she recommended was to start with Amazon first to find titles, then look for the title in the ILS to get the subject headings. We talked for a little while about how LC subject headings aren't as user friendly as some of the folksonomy-esque subjects and "tags" on sites like Amazon. She also recommended that if I was having trouble finding a title in the catalog, to go ahead and make purchasing recommendations.
I also worked on requesting a data dump from the state's classification specification online navigation webpage. I hope I didn't cause any extra work by making the request, but it would save me from a lot of copying and pasting to have the data in a .csv file. Hopefully they'll be able to help, but I'll still be able to complete this project if not.
