Day in the Life – Wednesday (Day 3)

Typical morning. Unlock office, turn computer on, get coffee, check email and day’s task list, work on overdues, etc.

This morning I have a training. So, I had to check emails to see what room we’re meeting in. Looks like it will be over in one of our computer labs. I also had to print directions for my afternoon meeting.

I’m looking forward to the afternoon meeting. It’s a reference librarian meeting for those in the system. I haven’t had a chance to meet many librarians in IL yet, so I’m excited about getting a bit more connected. I’m also looking for ideas of how to reach out more to the students here. We don’t get many reference questions and I know that it’s not because they don’t have questions. I’ve got some ideas percolating right now and plan to try something out in the next few weeks. And this is a monthly meeting, so it will become a regular part of my schedule.

Before I get immersed in the morning training, I do have a reference question to work on. This one came over the state’s virtual librarian system and was referred to me since it directly relates to our campus. I’m not sure what I’ll find, but it should be an interesting search.

I also need to work on staff schedule this morning. I try to put out a month’s worth of schedules at a time, but we’ve had a few changes due to some meetings and other things. So, it needs to be updated and some things changed around so I have coverage when it’s needed.

Once I get back in town this evening, I plan to stay home. Normally I’d be in the Quad Cities for Stitch and Bitch, but I don’t feel like doing more driving today. (The afternoon meeting is in East Peoria…the opposite direction.) Tonight I plan to make some chili and relax a bit. I’ve got a stack of books that are waiting to be read, so I hope to have some quality time with a good story. I also haven’t picked up the knitting needles this week and have a project I need to get stitching.

I’m glad that I’ve got a full day in the LRC tomorrow. There are a couple of projects that I’ll be focusing on. More about that tomorrow!
