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.

Tower of Babel, Ahoy

It is an important part of the debate

It is also the case that there is no such thing as "militar"

I was trying to use Google Translate to make sure I was interpreting a Spanish language title correctly. I had previously used it to check something in German, and that setting stuck, so Google tried to translate Spanish as if it were German. It lost it’s damn mind.

Red-spotted Purple

Red-spotted Purple through the Window
Red-spotted Purple (Limenitis arthemis astyanax)

I thought there was a moth on the outside of the window, but when I got a step stool and looked more closely, it was a butterfly.

I took this photo from the break room, because there isn’t usually anyone in there in the early morning, and I can turn off the lights so there’s no glare on the windows. A coworker came in, as I was leaving, and gave me a perplexed look. I pointed to the window, and to this view, and she still couldn’t understand what I was doing.

Colonnade

Also known as The Wind Tunnel. It’s not too bad this time of year, but in the dead of winter walking through it can be brutal.

Chairs

I spent my morning break today wandering in the stacks. This pile of chairs was between a range of books and the wall.

There’s a light…

…over at the Frankenstein place.

There's a light... #hermanbwellslibrary #libraries

When I got to work, there was a single light shining through the trees.
