You’re glad I’m here.
Hi there everyone. Although, there really isn’t anyone here yet since I just revived this old dusty WordPress blog. This blog is a very long time coming and that is why I just know you’re going to be glad I’m finally here.
About me: I am a librarian. As a librarian I split my time between traveling all over the state talking about library stuff and sitting pretty station-arily (yes, I make up words to suit my needs) at my desk cataloging books.
About me cataloging: I just came off of a 14 month marathon in which I cataloged about 20,000 “retrospective” titles from our old format collection.
About formats: I forgot to tell you that I’m a librarian for a regional LBPH library. That’s a Library for the Blind of Physically Handicapped for those not “in the biz.” When I say format, what I mean is that first our books were on reel to reel tapes (I could be making that up), then record albums, then flexible discs, then 4-track cassettes, and now they are on flash drive.
Again with the cataloging: While cataloging those 20,000 retro titles I ran into some real dogs. Titles that made me say, “who the eff thought this was a good idea?”
Birth of a blog: this blog will be a chance for me to share with you some of those titles that just make me wonder…Who’s [actually] Reading This?
