#HLSDITL: The Racing Librarian

Hack Library School‘s Day in the Life (#HLSDITL), round 2, is a project that encourages library school students from around the world to come together to share what Library (school) Land is really like. This will help prospective students learn what library school is actually like and connect current LIS/IT students with those in other programs. Find other students or sign up on their wiki.
I’m in my first semester of library school at The Catholic University of America, taking 2 classes and working as an Access Services Library Assistant on campus. I’ll be writing about my classes and my research projects, as well as my extracurricular involvement in two of our LIS student organizations, SLA & AGLISS.

So I made this prediction during Wednesday’s post:

“And I actually published my #HLSDITL blog post on the right day! Hopefully I’ll on time the rest of the week.”

I’m taking a page from Chelsye Bowley‘s #HLSDITL contributions (which are wonderful and amazing) and gif-ing my #HLSDITL Wednesday. I’ll make F1 fans out of all you librarians yet!

Let’s get started!

Well, Monday’s blog-post didn’t quite get finished as quickly as I expected (11:45pm on Tuesday is not a Monday blog post). So, I’ve decided to make my life easier by posting all the #HLSDITL-related tweets I sent out today.

A perfect start to my day. Stress about registration on Monday is gone! Continue reading

I’m a late riser. Nothing wrong with that, but when I wake up at 9:30am & already have 6 emails in my inbox, I know I’ve gotta get a move on. Continue reading

I’m getting a jump-start on #HLSDITL! Some library school students take a break from LibraryLand on the weekends, but Sundays are my grad-student shift day at Mullen Library.

Today was a long day, but not because of work. The Formula 1 Grand Prix of India was this morning! I watch all the races live (#livetweets!), so I was up around 2:00am to watch the race from 5:00am-8:00am on NBC Sports Network. Today’s race was historic: Sebastian Vettel won his fourth consecutive World Drivers’ Championship, the youngest driver to ever do so. I love seeing the drivers duke it out until the last race of the season, but Vettel’s been in such top form this year, I couldn’t help but be happy for him. Plus, any excuse to rock my F1 gear while working the library is a plus in my book (“check out” those puns!).

Red Bull RushAfter the race was over, I headed out to CUA. I work every Sunday from 10:45am-5:00pm or later. The library doesn’t open until 11:00am on Sundays, so there’s usually a pretty sizable queue of patrons waiting when we open the doors, ready to settle into their favorite study spot. It’s a bit like a Red Bull Racing rush. It’s great seeing so many people eager to get into the library and get down to work! Even though we have plenty of patrons in the library on Sundays, the circulation desk is pretty low-traffic. But that doesn’t mean I don’t have plenty of work to do! Continue reading
