I’m going to be participating in Round 7 of the Library Day in the Life! This year, it will run on July 25th. Basically, librarians all over the world describe what they are doing. Librarians can use flickr, twitter, blog, or youTube to talk about librarianship. It’s the brainchild of Bobbi Newman.
I think this is a GREAT project. For librarians, it allows one to reflect on their daily work…at least for me. Sometimes I feel like I’m caught up in so many projects, that the day goes by in a blur. Secondly, I think it’s important to show how the profession is constantly changing. It’s interesting to me that the public’s perception of librarians is mostly still about reading books. True, we’re still book people, but we also blog, edit video, tweet, podcast, and write.
I’m looking forward to recording my day!
