For the 38th year in my life, it’s time to start over. Again.
The academic year started on July 1, when I placed orders for new books and some supplies. There’s more to order and a lot of planning to be done. I’m starting to think about my priorities and goals for the year and just purchased my new notebook for the year (the Leuchtturm 1917 in Anthracite).
The end of last year was filled with research projects (we added two math projects – yes, math) and continuing to work on the collection. We’ve looked carefully at everything from the 000s – 400s (especially the 300s), and this year plan to get up through the 800s done, leaving the 900s for next year when we’ve done an even better job of looking at research papers and the materials students are using.
One of the exciting things that happened last year was working with Courtney Lewis and Sarah Kelley-Mudie on a presentation during ALA Annual (we may reprise it at AISL’s conference in April):
I’m also starting to plan the LIRT Liaison Committee’s work (I’m Chair for the committee) and continuing to read for LITA’s new Science Fiction Notables list.
And with all that… *poof*… summer’s gone. Almost.
