Comment:
Candy's class was difficult, but it wasn't overwhelming. She's tough because she has tons of knowledge about the field, but she wants to see her students succeed and always provides ways for you to get help on an assignment. Her lectures make the dry material seem much more interesting.

Candy Schwartz IS the best teacher I've ever had!!! Her class was outstanding! She is every enthusiastic about teaching this class. Cataloging & Classification by Chan, and also, Indexing & Abstracting are wonderful resources. If it wasn't for Candy and her encouragement to pursue this avenue, I would not have been successful to many companies.

Comment:
She talks fast and doesn't really stop for questions. Does not site book in class or assignments but readings before lecture will help keep you up on what the heck she is talking about. Meet with her on the FIRST assignment and decide if you need to again based on that. She will revise and give you notes which will make a letter grade difference.

She is very challenging, but you will learn a lot! Be prepared to spend a lot of outside time on this class, but it will all be worth it in the end.

Candy was the best professor I had during my whole GSLIS time. Every word she utters is applicable. Be prepared to work very hard outside class and to reap the benefits when you are done.

This was a hard (and somtimes boring) class, but Candy was enthusiastic about it so that helped. She has a great sense of humor though. This info is definitely useful and necessary for librarians. She makes you work for it.

Candy is not the most personable teacher, but her classes gave me information I regularly use. She's far better than most GSLIS profs.

I think Candy's an amazing teacher. She's smart, funny, and always available for her students. She gives a heavy work load, but it's how you learn the subject.

I've never understood the rampant Candy-love at Simmons, but Cataloging was the one class I took there that wasn't a total joke. Also the only one that had any practical application to real-world librarianship.

A wonderful professor and person. Perhaps a little too enfatuated with Aragon from LOTR. But an excellent teacher. Makes school worth it.
