Last Day is a track by obscure indie band Silver Sun, but not the subject of this post.
Today is my last day at Napier, my last day working in Edinburgh, and my last day in the library world. (Fear not, the much loved Dewey Decimal posts will continue as infrequently as ever.) As alluded to recently, I am following in the footsteps of Richard and Steve (who has made a welcome return to blogging) by getting myself a new job. Like Mr Kitchen, I am heading to The Smoke.
That’s four years in libraries, moving from customer services to electronic resources to cataloguing to IT and encompassing such new terms as III, CLA, FOI, HERA, AACR2, MARC21, DDC22, RSS, OPAC, SDI, EDI, RFID, OCLC, LoC, BLDSC, NLS, SQL, PHP, ILLOS… But it’s time to move on to pastures new.
More on that story later; first I have a desk to clear, files to sort, papers to bin, etc. For the time being, have a look at today’s remarkably prescient Dilbert.
