library day in the life 8.3

What can I say about today? I guess I could sum it up as a day of questions, ideas, people, technology, and materials. Hmm…that kind of sums up librarianship, doesn’t it? Reference desk. After the usual check of emails, I was on the reference desk from 9-11am. I like to be on the desk in […]

In fact, most of the day was actually quite relaxed. And I definitely needed this kind […]
