A person’s right to use the Board Librarians thread should not be denied or abridged because of origin, age, background, or views.

I'll be there Thursday through Monday and will walk around the poster area asking everyone I meet if we share vaguely similar opinions about star wars

One of our managers left and they gave me interim duties on book ordering until the new guy starts (in 2 months!) and it's a pretty great CV builder. Plus it's kind of cool, though I don't get to choose any of the books I buy

Had what I think was a pretty good first interview with a flagship university last Wednesday. Was kinda hoping to hear back about a visit by today, although things never move that fast. Guess it's silly to think that anyone's going to try scheduling stuff this close to ALA -- they probably won't do anything until after Fourth of July weekend. Waiting sucks.

I'd be down, actually, if it was well funded. I want to switch to universities, that's my usual refrain in the job thread

I had to induct a new lawyer in the research tools of the firm, and I had to do it in front of someone else I had done it for last September, and for some reason I felt really smooth and knowledgeable when I did it instead of bored and bad
