Library Day in the Life #6

January 24, 2011 at 6:01 pm 2 comments

For the first time, I’m participating in the Library Day in the Life project (currently on round 6), inspired by Bobbi Newman! Here is what I did today:

9 Make breakfast (Twinings Vintage Darjeeling tea, cottage cheese with ground flaxseed), catch up/follow through on e-mails received over the weekend, and discuss my second week of teaching with interested coworkers. Write thank-you notes to some of my students for helping their classmates on Friday and e-mail class materials to students who registered late and missed first class.

10:45 Finish up article on Midwinter for NMRT’s Footnotes. Place holds on newly received items for pickup by faculty.

11:10 Create end-of-J-Term library hours signs and e-mail student workers regarding schedule change.

11:30 Discuss IT/network news with IT staff member.

1:15 Reconfigure Circulation Desk due to renovations bringing it into ADA-compliance.

1:30 Grade class participation activities for last week’s classes (includes inputting grades into Engrade and e-mailing detailed notes to each student)

3 Eat lunch (finally!)

3:30 Check in serials

4:30 Get mail from Campus Mail Room and deliver to library staff

    My library was just renovated, and I spend the day hunched over the circ desk so it would be ADA compliant. The other day I had my first student in a wheelchair– he found the desk difficult to wheel up to because of the odd way they placed it. I hope that yours goes better. Bully the architect if you need to!

      We’ve got a large circulation desk, so we can still do our work without being affected by the ADA-compliant part. The also-renovated reference desk is another story, though…
