I’m going to be taking a short break from writing here for a few weeks, as I have just received a new job and need to move across the state.
I’ve spent the last 4 years working as the technical services head at the Berkshire Athenaeum, which has been an incredible experience, especially for someone fresh out of school like me. Besides getting to work on all the standard cataloging challenges, I got to toy with an enormous local history and genealogy collection, a collection dedicated to the work of Herman Melville, the library of Oliver Wendel Holmes, lead a number of workshops for patrons, host a number of sing-along to Journey nights (Rock Band) and of course drive a dump truck across Connecticut.
I can only imagine what new challenges await me when I get to the Worcester (sorry Wistah) Public Library in a few weeks. I can’t wait!
