So how's the new gig going?

Pretty good, and thanks for asking.  Although it couldn't be called - in the mythological sense - actual 'library Elysian Fields' (that would take at least two more zeros added to the end of the budget allocation), it's at least the holding pen to the field entry.  

Please forgive the AACR2-related pun.  

As the school year winds up, with only one more day to go before the 5 week break, the entire cataloguing backlog has now been cleared, with just a few problematic resources needing attention.  The annual library report is close to being finished; the major highlight is a three-fold increase in library borrowing.  Nice, but my work here is not yet done.  Geez, is it ever?!

Planning and resourcing is finished for next year's Library Orientation program.  If it wasn't so twee, I'd almost be tempted to publish it.  Let us all be thankful for small mercies.

The Shoestring Refurbishment has temporarily stalled, awaiting advice as to how much longer next year's shoestring might be.  And people say I'm not an optimist!
