2nd Annual Library Day in the Life Project

07.22.2009 · Posted in A Day in the Life of a Librarian

My new officeI actually hadn’t planned to keep doing this but when I announced my new job Emily Lloyd left a comment saying she couldn’t wait to read futre day in the life posts from my new position and that planted the seed.  Emily’s on hiatus right now but hopefully she’ll particpate again.

So I’m back from ALA and it seems like the time is right, so next week July 27th 2009 will start the  Second Annual Library Day in the Life Project.

What is the Library Day in the Life Project? well it started with this post suggesting that we blog what we do all day at work.  Libraries are changing so rapidly and we all know no ones is reading books, despite what the public may think ;-) The idea being that you’re sharing an average day, so many of us don’t have an average day though so a lot of people did a week, me included. I maybe just do a day this time though, we’ll see.

So how you particpate?

  • Go to the wiki
  • Create a PB Wiki (pbworks?) account (it’s free)!
  • Add your name, your job title (so we can see what you do at a glance) and a link to your blog.
  • On the 27th start recording your day or week.  It doesn’t have to be a blog post it can be photos, podcasts or videos
  • Tag your posts, pictures, videos, podcasts with librarydayinthelife.
  • After you’ve finished your first day come go back to the wiki and edit your link to link directly to your tagged blog posts, videos or photos.
  • Of course read along!

That’s it! Its super easy.  You can see some of the past ones below or on the wiki.
