Newly minted

It’s been a little over a month in my new role as a librarian. The transition was easier than I imagined, though I will probably still feel new for about six months.


In just a few weeks:

  • I’ve written an incident report
  • Been the PIC (person in charge)
  • Had AED training 
  • Participated in a management class


During my first year I’d like to figure out which areas of the “behind the scenes” things in librarianship suit my skill set, so if another promotion opportunity appears, I won’t hesitate to apply. Right now I’m interested in how libraries use social media for marketing purposes. Collection development also interests me because I could be more effective in diversifying the catalog if that was my primary duty.
