Wednesday – A day in the life of a librarian

Wednesday 7/9/08 Tonight is one of my late days because computer/internet classes are tonight.  Nikki & I take turns teaching a series of classes that vary from basic to advanced.  Tonight Nikki is teaching Microsoft Word so I get to be Vanna, assisting, troubleshooting & helping patrons when they run into a problem.  I get up and after […]

Tuesday – A Day in the Life of a Librarian Day 2

Tuesday: Today I telecommute! I telecommute for 8 hours a week.  These seems like a sweet deal until you realize I actually work from home about 20 hours a week and I’m only allowed to count 8 of those hours.  I start the day off by checking my  email accounts.  Then I drink some tea […]

One more way to use Flickr – videos!

Earlier this month I attended a Mobius conferernce session about vodcasting in libraries.  I came back all inspired and fired up.  I don’t think our patrons are ready for vodcasting yet but that didn’t stop me from making videos.  Even better is was perfect timing for Flickr allowing 90 second videos that are much better quality […]

MRRL’s Twitter account gets a shout out

Please excuse me a moment of self indulgence, MRRL’s twitter account got a shout out in a recent Library School Journal article about libraries using Twitter.  Since the flickr account and the blog are a labor of love on my part I’m so happy when I see that they are getting some love from someone else.  We’ve […]
