Yesterday in the stacks, I overheard the following: “You’re just jealous that I’m reading a thick book!”
That completely made my day.
What also made my day: the fact that I finished editing an enormous batch of our bib records — everything that has been cataloged since February — which were then mapped as “not requestable” by MCLS and subsequently uploaded to the MeLCat server. My eyes were pretty shot by the time I finished that project, but I felt like a weight has been lifted off my shoulders. Managing new items in our collection will be made easier by using labeled lists within our ILS which serve to remind me to change their circulation status in 6 months thus triggering another upload to the MeLCat server.
While outside and about to leave for my book break, I spotted our garden gnome doing some work in one of the flower beds.
Last night, before leaving, I checked out Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Alire Sáenz. I read some before bed last night and really got into it.
It was a gnomtastic day.
