What I learned in my first week

I know that my first week isn’t over yet – but I wanted to share what I’ve learned so far.

First, the people and the library are awesome! As you all know (if you’re in the working world) that is the most important thing to look for in a job!

Second, metadata is cool! I can’t wait to actually get my hands dirty (which I’ll get to do this afternoon).

Third, EverNote is essential! I learned about this program from Iris at CIL. It was very handy in keeping my conference notes organized. I never could find a use for it after that – but here it is. If you’re starting a new job and want to keep track of all of those training notes and to do lists – this is the tool to use.

Well, it’s back to some training for me – this morning we’re going to do some copy cataloging.


  1. Glad you like it. 🙂

    Be sure to find the evernote webclipper for firefox and thunderbird, too. That way you can “clip” selected text or entire web pages or emails directly into your evernotes. I actually use one evernote for all my notes and stuff and one simply for archiving email.

  2. Actually the newest version comes with the Firefox thing included – or it seemed that way cause I have it.
