Meredith had a long post a couple of weeks ago that I saved to read when I had time – apparently I’ve been busy. I just finished reading it and I couldn’t help thinking “She’s talking about me”!

I am on leave from work for 2 weeks. My mom is coming to stay while she recovers from surgery (nothing serious). So now that I finally caught up after CIL I’m going to fall behind again. Just a little warning

Back in December I posted about not being a librarian – but after reading through the comments and doing a little research I have decided that getting my MLS is a step I want to [ Read More ]
I have been rushing to get my article about our Intranet redesign project done before my deadline – sorry I haven’t been posting much – but I really want this article to be great so that it can help the rest of you out there design collaborative Intranets like ours.
I just read about Simply Hired – Dog Friendly. It lets you search for jobs at places that will allow dogs in the office! How great is that? Of course, I doubt that there are any libraries on the list … but it’s still a nice idea!
I’m presenting for GPLLA (Greater Philadelphia Law Library Association) right here at work next month. You can learn more about it on our Jenkins News page. I’ll be showing local law librarians how to find, keep up with, and start their own blogs – should be a fun afternoon.
