Another Day in the Life

It’s been a few months since I’ve done this, so I thought I’d share. I’ve had what I would consider a typically random day for me also, so here goes….


  • chat with coworkers in the ILL office


  • check email for overnight emails
  • prepare email address list for the local roundtable I am chair of


  • compose email chairing a virtual business meeting/election for the roundtable, ensuring we are following both Robert’s Rules and our bylaws


  • cleared off desk
  • keeping an eye on email for the virtual business meeting


  • cleaned up emails
  • took care of missing payment for online resource
  • tallied votes for virtual meeting
  • sorted catalogs for Education collection development


  • cleared bulletin board of snowflake display
  • put up spring & alphabet book display
  • organized display materials
  • emailed website suggestion to colleagues
  • rebooted my computer to fix mouse issue


  • attempted to find downloaded file for student that was saved in unfindable location
  • lunch!


  • poked on Envisionware to try to change guest pass settings
  • helped student find primary sources for her Education paper
  • started gathering titles for an updated professional collection for library faculty


  • showed Education students how to do collection development
  • tallied votes for roundtable meeting
  • ran invoices to acquisitions
  • contacted photographers about my wedding
  • wrote this blog post!

As you can see, there is a wide variety of activities during my day, and not all of them are directly related to my job title 🙂
