Reference Upheaval July 8, 2009

Reference is certainly in a topsy turvy mode right now. How much print, how much electronic? Is anyone using the print collection? Should I weed aggressively? Reference needs to be shifted, but I believe that the print will continue to shrink. It’s a sad time for us print oriented old timers, but it’s also exciting. I am very excited about credoreference. Deep indexing rocks!

This past week has been very hectic because my father is in the hospital. He is doing much better. The nice part is that I visit him everyday and we have had some great talks.

I always get a little apprehensive about book discussion night.  I have grossly overprepared for the book, in fact, I could probably write a dissertion on the Maltese Falcon.  However, I heard from Kathleen Preston who is not coming tonight, because she is in Albany with Maureen who is getting a hip replacement.  Send Maureen your good thoughts.

During some difficult times in my life, I have been scrupulous about keeping a journal.  When my baby was in the hospital for 15 weeks, I wrote in a journal everyday.  I needed to write down my thoughts and keep track of her progress.  It was very useful and probably cathartic.  I also kept a journal when I was travelling by myself.  It was something to do in a restaurant and my thoughts kept me company.

I am still getting used to blogging and I’m having a bit of trouble.  I thought I would see the posts when I logged on, but I had to noodle around until I found it.  I think this will get easier the more I do it.
