I hope you all enjoyed my first live blog yesterday. I did my very best to make sure it was educating and not too boring. Here’s day 2 of my live blog, so please enjoy!
8:40am - Came in early and ready to work!
8:50am - Finished and posted the weekly spreadsheet.
9:40am - We had our first fire drill with me and another colleague who works a few cubicles away from me as Fire Wardens. I did not do much besides showing where people have to go in case of emergency, but practice is always good. Now walking down to shipping to distribute wooden carts and metal racks to different departments.
10:03am – As I passed by a window after leaving shipping, I couldn’t believe how much snow is coming down. Let’s hope my bus is still running after 5. Anyway, time to start searching and try to fill out requests!
10:55am - Finished searching! Time to double check and edit the info on the slips and print them out…
11:54am - YES! More blue Land bags came in!
12:06pm - Of course, if the company, organization, or institute you work for has a twitter account, you follow it because you never know if something interesting comes up. For example, did you know that the 1st televised State of the Union was in 1947, 3 days after the 1st live broadcast from Congress? SO retweeted that bit of interesting history fact!
12:15pm - Packing up UPS boxes to ship out to other libraries, universities, and institutes for their patrons or students use.
1:02pm – Probably one of the best perks about working at the New York Public Library is the cool events they have that staff can be included in. Instead of lunch today, I’ll be attending an interesting lecture on The Unmaking of the German Working Class: Why Class Conflict Ended after 1945. I just hope it won’t go beyond 2 o’ clock though…
2:02pm - Had to leave the lecture before it ended. I guess I jinxed myself on that one…
3:16pm - Sorry my fellow readers, but I kind of forgot about blogging. Just got back from the Children’s room to unlock some of the DVD’s and currently processing circulating materials to be sent out.
3:39pm - Just got kicked out of ILLiad while trying to help out a patron on the phone. I’m just glad the patron wasn’t impatient.
4:15pm - Finally in the process to review which research materials can or cannot be lent out to other institutions and universities.
4:25pm - Walking down to different departments to receive approvals for their materials to be lent out to other institutions and universities. Maybe I’ll start tweeting along the way, so follow me @ChUbByPhIL!
4:43pm - One of the curators is on break, so I’ll make a second trip later on. As for now, time to check these materials out through our system (Millenium) and then process them through ILLiad.
5:03pm - Just print and cut the orange bans. Once I’m done wrapping them onto the appropriate materials, it’s time to go home! Good night my fellow readers!
