Library Day in the Life: Round 7, Day 4Posted: July 31, 2011
Friday was kind of a blur, but I wanted to round out the week with a final “day in the life” post.
Our offices are only open from 9-3 on summer Fridays, and I spent most of the shortened day finishing up the conference website and registration portal, so that we’ll be ready to open early-bird registration on Monday. We’re good to go from my perspective, but I have been sensing some mixed messages from other departments. I guess we’ll see what happens on Monday!
One of my coworkers also surprised me with an early birthday cake, so that was hands-down the highlight of my work day.
I was only in the library long enough to chat with my colleague about next steps for the travel arrangements to the Polaris Users Group Conference and grab a book that needed to be mailed. Before I left, I took a couple of pictures, as promised in earlier posts.
This concludes my marginally library-related day in the life series. I hope the peek into this less traditional job and library will be useful for some aspiring librarians and information professionals.
