I guess what I liked about it was the behind-the-scenes component, which is often a mystery to non-librarians. And even though I was at a public desk for the entire day I was recording, I’m sure at least half of what I did went unnoticed by the public.
Not that I think the public reads my blog, but I know library students do, and many of them commented about how much they enjoyed it. So that made it worth it right there.
But back the behind-the-scenes part – I think it’d be a great idea for something of this nature to be a regular feature on library blogs/websites or newspaper particles. Lexi the Intern is doing something like this, and I like the idea of giving the public a more full picture of what we do all day, instead of just checking in and out books.]]>
Thanks for the response. It has been valuable to me, and I hope to others, in hearing you, Meredith, and others think outloud about this and share why we do what we do, in our blogs and in our days. I’m glad for the discussion and for the resource!]]>
