Well, it's official - this morning I got the call! After working for over ten years as a library ass(istant) I will start my first professional job on Monday as the new Head of Interlibrary Loan here at the Big Library. Which means it's time to bid this blog farewell. To be honest it's been hard to find the time for blogging of any sort, be it library-related or personal, and though I hope to start a new blog chronicling my career as a librarian I believe I will have my hands full for the foreseeable future getting up to speed in my new position.
I will keep the archives active, but this will be my last post. Thanks for tuning in, folks! And wish me luck...

There is a special place in library Hell for patrons who think that it's okay to put Post-It™ notes in books that are over a century old. In case you're wondering, the effect is a lot like when you put Silly Putty on a newspaper comic strip, except instead of pulling a microscopic layer of color off the newsprint you actually pull the paper clear off the page and out of the book. Eep!
