I haven’t written anything since my job changed to a 10-month contract. I’ve been busy getting back into the swing. I had a comment this morning so I thought I should get started again.
Here are some quick thoughts:
- I now have a camera stand we can use to capture images from books and oversized objects. You may hear more as I learn to use it. White balance seems to be the problem of the moment.
- I have another great group of student workers!
- I did a talk about special collections at a faculty luncheon last spring and I’m getting more classes doing research here.
- While working with one class on 19th century women authors I found that 2 vol. our copy of “History of Woman Suffrage ” have book plates stating they were a gift of Susan B. Anthony.
- Library has a cool new webpage. (more later)
- I was thinking of retiring Spike (Vampire) as security guard, but his name still gets me the most hits on this blog. Till that changes, he will be on duty.
