And here is where the other side of me comes into play on this blog. The one that makes, creates, and plots. I sew, mostly for myself, a bit for my husband, and occasionally for others in my life who manage to earn it.
My previous position gave me a shared office space, shared as in we had the same computer, desk, and chair in what amounted to a large closet with a window ( to the inside of the library, CERTAINLY not to the outdoors) that we could utilize this way only because we worked opposite of each other. As a result, this never felt like MY desk and I disregarded using it as such. Important notes and documents stayed digital. If I needed a print record of something I had a few folders I just kept at the reference desk. ....
I think I have sabotaged myself on a few cover letters by saying I have a unique perspective on libraries because I am an entrepreneur. It is no less true though. At the same time, at the 2015 Michigan Libraries Association Conference, the talk "The Librarian as An Entrepreneur" was packed. There seems to be a disconnect.
It's summer time, which means it's time to look back on the previous semester and see what I could do better. It's not that it is only in the summer that I think about how to tweak and revamp my sessions, it's just now is when there happens to be a bit more brain power to allocate to it.
