Every semester it always takes me a little while to get adjusted to all the public speaking I do once the classes I work with start coming to the library. Today I spoke at a meeting and taught 2 classes in a row this evening, and I am totally drained. I gave out my aim info in one of the classes and a few people giggled, I don’t know if I selected a funny screenname or if they just found the idea of instant messaging a librarian weird. I think it will be an interesting experiment to see if anyone actually instant messages me with library questions. 🙂
I was able to get a little bit of preparation done for a workshop on RSS I’m teaching later this week. It also looks like my department is going to investigate setting up a blog for internal communication, so that’s very cool.
I subscribed to NEWLIB-L several weeks ago, and I’m just finding that listserv a little odd. I’m not sure if its because I’m not “new” enough as a librarian or if I just have a hard time relating to the topics discussed.
