A day in the life: Monday
I’m participating in round six of the Library Day in the Life project! Here is what I did today:
9-10 – Got to the library, grabbed a vanilla latte from Starbucks, caught up on some email from last week/the weekend. Started this post.
10-10:45 – Meeting with Vice President of Information Resources, Systems Librarian & student worker to discuss our website redesign project. We’re moving to Drupal (hopefully sometime this semester) but have run into a few roadblocks across the way. Goal is to get the new site up before we move out of the current building this summer.
10:45-11 – Talked with a co-worker who stopped by my office about the upcoming ACRL conference (she’s presenting two posters and I am doing a virtual presentation).
11-11:30 – Meeting with Learning Technologies Librarian to discuss our new Library Student Advisory Board. We’re approaching some of the campus organizations for representation (including Graduate Studies Association, Pre-Scholars Institute, All Greek Council, Asian & Friends, Black Student Union, Society on Latino Affairs and Commuting Students Association) and holding an election with Student Senate to populate the group. The first meeting is in February and I’m stoked!
11:30-12:10 – Email. Talked on the phone with a previous library intern & friend (same person) about the job interview she just got out of. Fingers crossed!
12:15 -1:20 – Lunch meeting with a Communications professor to talk about integrating her public relations students with the library renovation project. We also talked about some upcoming library instruction sessions for her COMM 100 classes.
1:20-2:15 – Email. Sent out invitations to student organizations for the Library Student Advisory Board. This seems like an awful long time but I honestly can’t remember what I was working on…
2:15 – Meeting with editor of The Snapper (MU student newspaper) to discuss a series of advertisements for this semester relating to the upcoming library renovation. Found out their ad deadline for this week is tomorrow, eek!
2:15-4 – Pardon my language, but sh!t really hit the fan this afternoon. It was just one thing after another – phone calls, people coming into my office, emails. In my hazy stupor I seem to remember designing the first library renovation advertisement and submitting it to the paper. Made some phone calls and scheduled some meetings relating to V-Day 2011 (I’m working on Millersville’s production of Eve Ensler’s “The Vagina Monologues” again this year, and we have had quite the headache trying to find a performance space on campus with all of the construction projects currently underway). I sent an email to the off-campus participants for tomorrow’s “Joy of Text” webinar (sponsored by the PaLA College & Research Division) including directions and parking information.
4:15 – Cleaned this post up & hightailed it home.
Does this make you want to be a librarian? Haha. If you’re interested in comparing, my previous Library Day in the Life posts can be found here: https://libraryscenester.wordpress.com/tag/librarydayinthelife/.
