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.
