This Internet thing is just a fad...

Maybe someday people will put music and their home movies on the net.  Nah.

Thanks to Guy Kawasaki for the link.

My library day

This should be a short little piece about #libday7.  I've taken part in #libday in the past, but only back to Libday4.

On Monday, July the 25th, I got into work a little late, since I needed to drop my 11 year old kid off at a summer camp.  It is just a week long camp at the Littleton Town Hall Arts Center.  He is learning about comedy and improvisation.

Of course, email is the first thing that I slog through, and I had a lot of it to slog through.  I was off work last Thursday afternoon and Friday.  (We went out camping with the Boy Scout Troop at the Wilderness on Wheels camp about an hour SW of here.  One of the kids designed a bench [we helped him build it] and ran a fishing and camping workshop as an eagle scout project.)  Over the weekend, I read some of the more important messages, but I left the non-essential messages till Monday.

Soooooooo, here are some of the topics of emails that I responded to.
After lunch, I listened to some of this online workshop session concerning how our admissions office is using social media to interact with prospective and new students.  I often attend the WebEd workshops in person, but I didn't today.

During the rest of the afternoon, I worked as a peer reviewer for the journal, Practical Academic Librarianship.  This is a great new journal from the Academic Division of SLA.  I read most of the paper last week, but it took me a little while to write the reviewers report concerning the article that was assigned to me.  This is the first time that I have been a peer reviewer for a journal, so I wasn't sure how much feedback to provide, so it took me a while to write out my response and thoughts about the article.

That was pretty much my day.  Exciting, huh.
