Wow, over two years since my last post. I wish I could say time flies when you’re having fun but I can’t. The cessation of posts coincides with the “transformation” MPOW underwent, leaving the library with 95% fewer staff than before the transformation. That is all I will say on that topic other than we’ve had a rough time reinventing ourselves. Of the two staff members left, neither work full time. I work 36 hours per week and the LTA works 24. We mostly do literature searches and interlibrary loans.
I’ve gotten to the point where hiding doesn’t work. I miss the connectedness I felt when I blogged. People knew who I was and I knew who they were. I had the change to attend MLA ’10 and realized that networking and putting myself out there is the only way I’m going to survive. So, here I am. I’ve got a topic I’m working on for my first real post, which will be written by the end of the week.
In the mean time, it’s back to work for me.
