Another exciting round of "Library Day in the Life"

Yes, friends, fiends, and fans, it's time for another exciting week of "Library Day in the Life" posts! Follow the fun on Twitter by searching for #libday7, or see more at

My own day thus far:
  • Before 8:00am - stop to pick up lunch and some cookies for today's going away party for two colleagues.
  • 8:15 - 8:45 - check in with colleagues to find out what I missed by being out for professional development on Friday.
  • 9:00 - 10:00 - check email and voice mail to discover an urgent reference request for a campus department. Start digging. Find out from assistant he is working on same question. Email campus department and learn that they have already answered one part of their question.
  • 10:00 - 11:00 - library management group meeting. Discuss fall plans (we're short on reference and subject librarian help) and brainstorm ways to survive. Deliver report from library communications committee on next steps.
  • 11:00 - 11:30 - open snail mail from Friday, delegate contents of some envelopes, put other items in box for student to file.
  • 11:30 - 11:45 - start blog post on #libday7. Talk to circulation desk about fall student hiring.
That's it for now!
