Man alive! It’s been a busy August in the Cordova household. First off, I just finished co-writing a chapter (with fellow librarian Kim–thanks!) for an upcoming book on library advocacy–my first official “publication” that will sit nicely as I start my review process for tenure in the coming weeks; and spent an inordinate amount of summer putting the finishing touches to UNIV 106, the one-credit Library Research class.
I sat/presented in two panels (one on library services to millennials and the other on how we use LibraryThing in our library) and co-presented at PNLA (Pacific Northwest Library Association) on SPLAT.
And before things got too crazy, went on vacation to beautiful Redfish Lake to wash our cares away in the lake, which was surprinsingly not that cold. We stayed overnight in one of the shared cabins so we spent a whole bunch of time swimming and chasing minnows.
All in all a full and fun summer. Getting tired now…
