We are part of an amazing profession built on helping others. As I’ve been pondering my next steps in the profession and what my place is in it (here and here) I reminded myself that I don’t have to struggle with the question on my own.
This year’s selection of pumpkins decorated by our student assistants.
And the winners are:
3rd Place TIE: Cat-o-lantern & Baby Jack with Braces
2nd Place: 1930’s Cartoon Pumpkin
1st Place: Evil Jack-o-lantern
Congratulations to the winners, even though my favorite, Cheerful Hillbilly Who’s in a Jugband on Friday and Saturday Nights, was not included. 😦
I don’t read.
That’s not really true, of course. I read, some. I suspect that I read more than the average person, and especially the average man, but compared to other librarians, I don’t read.
Do not apply for a job at the University of Cincinnati.
In a few short weeks the new semester begins. This will be my second academic year in this position. Over the last year there have been so many changes at work including a roughly 83% turnover in personnel in my department. That means that only myself and one staff member are doing the jobs we were doing at this time last year. Another position was moved under me that I didn’t have at that time, and yet another position has been created out of whole cloth.
