Library Day in the Life Round 6 Begins January 24th 2011

I think I have a problemIt’s hard to believe but Round 6 of Library Day in the Life Project will run January 24th through the 30th.

What is the Library Day in the Life Project? It started when I come discovered someone had searched “What’s a librarian’s day like” to find my blog so I wrote a blog post suggesting that we blog what we do all day at work.  Then we (and maybe patrons) could see what we do all day. Some people blogged a day, others like me blogged a week. I did a week because I felt like I have no average day so a week would better represent what I do.

If you are wondering why you should participate Meredith Farkas offers an excellent explanation of why she did. The Project has turned into a great resource for students, instructors, staff and patrons.

You don’t have to write a blog post, you can document your day with words or photos or tweets or a handwritten love note or a cartoon.

How do you participate?

  • 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. Ater you’ve documented your day or week go back to the wiki and add a direct link it
  • On the 24th start recording your day or week.
  • Bloggers, Flickr & YouTube users tag your posts with librarydayinthelife. Twitters use the #libday6
  • Add your Flickr photos or videos to the Group on Flickr and/or join the Facebook Page.
