It’s a little known fact that librarians never sleep. If we aren’t otherwise erecting a new building, teaching classes, ordering new materials, serving as liaisons to academic departments, implementing a new online catalog, serving on committees (library, university, local, regional, national), putting out information fires on a daily basis, forging new partnerships, or just having some fun…we’re also engaged in the dialogue with the larger discussion of the library world. Below you’ll find an overview of some of the ways we’ve kept ourselves busy in our free time:
