Library Day in the Life, Day 4

Day 4, LibrarydayintheLife Project

Leigh Cunningham, Collections and Instruction Librarian, Medicine Hat College, Alberta, Canada

 

8:30 Arrive at work.

8:30-10:00

Email. Finish preparation for class today and preparation for weeding at Brooks Campus. Answer reference question from Distance Ed. Student (drug prevention programs for grade 1).

10:00-11:15

Travel from Medicine Hat to Brooks, AB

11:15-11:45

Meet with staff at Brooks library

12:00-1:00

Offer drop in Study Skills workshop on APA and MLA formatting. Sadly, no one shows up. Feeling dejected.

1:00-2:30

Eat lunch on the run and travel back to Medicine Hat

2:30-3:30

Chair Social Committee Meeting. We’re going to see the Medicine Hat production of Evil Dead: The Musical.

3:30-4:15 Reference Desk Shift

Help a student cite something from a PowerPoint slide in Blackboard. I conclude that the instructor has incorrectly cited criteria from the DSM-IV and we end up not being able to find the criteria listed on the instructor’s slides in the actual manual. Great. Send student away with a cobbled together APA citation. Bring the DSM back to my office to find the correct info.

4:15-4:30

Feeling dejected and defeated. My desk is piled with papers. Do I tackle the pile or just head home for the day?

    I felt dejected and defeated at *exactly the same time* today! Except, I guess, because of the time difference, it was a different time? Whatever…
