Tuesday’s Work

Tuesday's Work #work #cataloging #techservices #books

I finally got through everything on the bottom shelf of my book truck. It was all old stuff with minimal or crappy records, so I’d been putting off working on it.

I also got a promotion, effective in two weeks. My new official title will be “electronic resources cataloger,” but I’ll
still be working with some printed materials. I’ll also get to train to do name authority work and will be doing more original cataloging. Très excitant!

That may not look like a lot, for a day’s cataloging output, but they were skinny and mean.

Renovation Progress

Renovation #renovation #hermanbwellslibrary

I worked today, and since it was the weekend, I had to enter through the “renovation hallway.” Progress! This is the area with the crossed out walls. They’re all gone now.

Kill Room?

Freight Elevator.

I used the freight elevator this morning. For some reason, the interior has plastic sheeting taped to the walls. Very Dexter. And apparently I’m not the only one to think so, because someone wrote “Kill Room?” on the tape.

Also, sharing from Instagram to Flickr seems to be working again. YAY!

Remodeling

They’ve pulled up the floor tiles. I love the wooden trap doors at the top of the escalators.

They’re renovating the 9th floor of the west tower. Eventually the fine arts library will move here, so that their space in the fine arts building can be incorporated into the big art museum renovation. The library will permanently lose the space in the art building, unfortunately, so we’re having to find room for the fine arts collection in the main library.

The 9th floor is being cleared out, so it can be renovated, so the fine arts collection will have a new home.

Coffee Break

Job Security

I went to get coffee and check the eastern sky. Bupkis. But I saw that the incoming table in acquisitions was full of books waiting to be unboxed and processed. We call that job security.

Then I looked at the western sky.

Belt of Venus

What a beautiful Belt of Venus!

There’s Matter

I somehow got roped into helping clean out the fridge at work. It was brutal, y’all. Brutal.
