9:30am – Get into work. Check email, get situated. After being away for a week, I’m a little out of touch with what’s going on here.
10:00-11:00am – Edit some images on Photoshop to make sure they look nice and pretty when they are uploaded onto the server.
11:00am – Use the cool sheet feeding scanner to digitize Paper’s Read by the Indianapolis Literary Club during the turn of the 20th century.
11:30am – Get an email from Micah that officially approves me as a co-author for a chapter in a LITA Guide to Digital Librarianship. This is very exciting news for me! I’d better start writing soon!
12:45pm – Take a brief lunch break.
1:00pm Go back to my computer station and continue editing images on Photoshop.
2:00-4:00pm Go to the Indiana State Library to volunteer and create metadata records. Today, I worked on some very interesting letters, a couple that referred to a “massacre” of three Union Workers.
Now I am at home. Monday’s tend to be my lighter days, since I volunteer in the afternoon. I’m really enjoying my summer break, but in a couple of weeks everything is going back into full swing. I will be starting an instruction internship, working part-time still, and taking classes. Time to enjoy the rest of my precocious free time!
