Library Day in the Life 7 Prologue – The week in preview #libday7

As a preamble to #libday7, I thought I would share my ‘to-do’ list for the upcoming week. This is not a ‘must’ do for a week, more what I am currently doing at this time. I have changed some items and have removed all names. Hopefully it is vague enough not to give any secrets J I hope to share the start of next week’s as well to show the progression I have made in the week. In comparison to last week (11 meetings, 2 library ‘social’ events) I have very few meetings, meaning I hope to get some ‘proper’ library work done!

    1. Thanks Bobbi!
      I don’t really use any special software/method – I just have a meeting-free week, so I have told library assistants to not disturb me unless really neccasary. I’ve then allocated certain main tasks to certain time periods – but have been quite sensible with the times. Thats it really!
