Thing 2 - Explore other blogs

Hello again everyone, thank you so much for your comments! Be assured that I have tried to return the compliment but am currently having a problem with comments on my blog [I can read them but not reply to them]. However, I will endeavour to get this glitch sorted as soon as possible.

In the meantime, in reply to Laura’s comment, YES to cute pictures of squirrels [just as soon as I can work out how to upload them]! I have an on-going battle with the Librarian as he favours the beautiful [yet diminutive] red squirrel whilst I favour the noble [yet much maligned] grey. We’ve had some fun over the years J

In reply to Sally, I do love working in a Museum Library. My first degree was in Art History and when I originally came to the Museum as a Museum Assistant I thought about a job in the Art Department. However, as luck would have it, a position came up in the Library [maternity cover] and within the first few weeks I knew that library work was for me.

I’ve so enjoyed making contact with you all and I must say that, so far, I’m really enjoying the cpd23 experience.

Ps. I just noticed that “Thing 3” was posted yesterday so onwards and upwards!

CPD23 Things

Thing 1: Blogging

Hello everyone, I am a library assistant working in a museum library. We are primarily a support to the curatorial staff but do accept relevent outside enquiries. I am responsible for journals management, accessioning, enquiries and [of course] all other library associated duties.

I've signed up to CPD23 as I have steadfastly avoided the world of blogging until now but feel the time is right to embrace a new challenge!  I am looking to create a positive online presence and hopefully achieve familiarity with concepts like networks and  filesharing but mostly I'm looking forward to being involved in a new project with other like minded people :-)

All the best from Squirrel Library [aka Jenny]
