Library day in the life - 5 - Day 3

Day three started off with a Go Train that decided to arrive 20 minutes late. Three cheers for mass transit. The delay was a good thing, it gave me 20 extra minutes and I was able to finish Calvino’s, "Six Memos for the Next Millennium." Morning Morning soundtrack: BBC World Service podcast, Search Engine - Trolling 101, Funkstörung - Appendix In the trenches of morning emails. ILL requests for theses to be made open access, therefore said theses are made open access.

Library day in the life - 5 - Day 1

So here we are again. Library Day in the Life number five! Monday is a work from home day. No audacious commute from Toronto to Hamilton today! Morning: Morning soundtrack: BBC World Service podcast, TWiT - It’s The New Sex Talk, CBC Spark Daniel Pink on Motivation 3.0, The Protomen - The Protomen Catch up a bunch of email from last week, and finally got around to setting up Drush. Don’t know why I never got around to it before, but it definitely worth the time of checking out if you manage a few Drupal sites.

Research Help Desk...

Day three… Morning: Yes, email. Got into work early to cover on Research Help Desk for a colleague. I always find my shift on the help desk quite comical. I get the feeling that students and faculty don’t know how the approach the guy covered in tattoos sitting at the help desk with a laptop. Once they find out that I am actually a librarian, and not a student, or some weirdo sitting there, they seem quite surprised.
