A continuation of the 8th Library Day in the Life Project (January 30 – February 5, 2012), a recurring project started by Bobbi Newman in July 2008 to encourage library professionals to share amongst each other the diverse work done in this rapidly evolving industry, and to educate the public about what the heck it is that librarians actually do.
I am the Systems Librarian and Communications Coordinator at the Pollak Library, California State University, Fullerton.

8:30am – 9:00am: Checked and responded to emails.
9:30am – 10:00am: Perused Google Reader RSS feeds, Twitter stream (mine and the library account), Google Alerts for campus and the library, Library Facebook page news stream.
10:00am – 10:30am: Started discussion and evaluation of GroupTweet as possible alternative to using CoTweet to manage the library’s Twitter account. The free version of CoTweet goes away mid-February, and it — along with Hootsuite and Buffer — charge fees to attach multiple editors to a single Twitter account. Doesn’t look like GroupTweet will meet our needs, though, because it forces each contributor to have their own Twitter account, and some of our employees don’t want their own account.
10:30am – 11:00am: Met with campus employee from the University Learning Center to train her how to contribute posts in WordPress, so she can do a weekly guest blogger column on the library’s blog.
