Shameless Marketing

Fair readers,

Have you checked out The Young Librarian Series yet?  Here is a little taste:

Head on over, tell your friends and tell the people who aren’t actually your friends but who you just talk to at work.  Tell the world!  You know what they say about word of mouth right?

Yeah. Me neither.

Have a lovely week!


Bizarro bizarro!

Hello fair readers!

The past week was one made in bizarro land.

It mainly revolves around me putting lots of stuff on my plate.  NU Law is transitioning into the Fall schedule, which basically has made my past two weekends just non-existent.  This week starts orientation week, so lots of explaining policies and what not to newbies.  Then on top of this, I officially launched the Young Librarian Series!

Check. It. Out. (http://blogs.tametheweb.com/younglibrarian/)

This stuff alone is enough to make me freak out…because as people know me know, I’m a bit type 1.

yep. pretty much.

yep. pretty much.

So when I had a wheel stolen off my car Thursday morning, there was great potential for a freak out.

[head explode]

Seriously. My car was propped up on a cement block.  Wheel + tire = completely freaking gone.

Amazingly I was at the point where this just made me laugh.  There really was nothing else to do.  I called the police, called AAA, and took my car to a really rad shop that I recommend called Speedline on Damen.  Highly highly recommend. And laughed at the ridiculousness of it all.

I think this means I’m getting older?  The fact that I was actually able to still make it into work and not completely lose my shite over this.  Who knows.

Check out The Young Librarian Series!  It’s where I’m spending most of my time these days.  Might as well be for you too, right?


Introducing the Young Librarian Series.

My fellow young librarians and library workers:

I am now accepting submissions for an idea that I have been bouncing around for some time now. The Young Librarian Series is is a multimedia project. The basis is going to be a series of video interviews and guest posts on a blog graciously being hosted at tametheweb blogs. (ty Michael!!) Our themes will be generations in the library and being a Gen Y and young Gen X librarian; our experiences, our triumphs, struggles, cool projects that you might want to highlight and so on.

Items the you might want to consider submitting: generational based posts, library inspired art projects, new media projects, such as videos, podcasts, or a created resource. Really the sky is the limit here and I’m very excited to see what people have to contribute.

The goal of The Young Librarian Series is to provide a sense of community for young librarians. A place for us to collaborate, to center ourselves in the field. To brainstorm. To think. To discuss and empower.

My guidelines are basic: you must be a part of Generation Y or young-ish Gen X, so 40 and under. If you just want to bounce ideas off me and send a proposal, that is more than welcome. I don’t care what font you use. I don’t care if there are one inch margins. I want to hear about your ideas, your experiences. And your fellow young librarians want to hear from you as well.

Please note: If I have spoken to you about doing an interview or contributing, its time to start formulating some ideas. Send me an email with any and all questions.

The email: younglibrarianseries[at]gmail[dot]com

I so look forward to hearing from you and please, lets spread the word.

leah the librarian!
