Back to work

April 22, 2009

I have been on maternity leave for the past 2 1/2 months, and I am starting to get back into the swing of things.

Some of the projects currently on my list:

  • Revise our science and mathematics subject guides. They were neglected before I came on board as science librarian and are in need of a big overhaul
  • Weed the science reference collection (with my reference librarian colleagues)
  • Put together a presentation about information literacy in Chemistry for a small workshop
  • Analyze our print collection in the sciences, in case we have any money to buy more books next year
  • Working with biology faculty to develop some information literacy strategies for the first year biology lab
  • Miscellaneous web design projects, including a possible transfer of the library website to the Drupal CMS
  • Ongoing assessment of our information literacy program

So, what do I tackle first upon my return? The easy things: possible style sheet changes for our website to change the look of our links. Sometimes the best way to get started again is to do a few easy things before hitting the larger projects.

Oh, and I spent some time finding more science librarians to follow on Twitter, and editing my LinkedIn profile. That counts as work, right?
