Hi Blog World!
I hope all is well with everyone. Things have been very hectic here lately. I started my new awesome job two months ago. Its a PT position in adult nonfiction at a really big and super awesome library. I love it! Going from a Children's department to Adult was definitely interesting.
So what do I do on a day to day basis? Processing. Just call me a processing fool. Once the Library Specialist (FT ppl) decide where a book goes (ie, Dewey Number, if it belongs in a particular collection) they send the book to me where I
1. Create a spine label
2. Kapco, Spine Tape, or Wrap...if need be.
3. Any other labels such as Reference, Includes Disc, No ILL, New, ....

I also help answer reference questions and anything else that needs to be done.
Currently I am at 19 hours, but I was just recently informed that starting with the new budget year I will be going to 29 hours and will have a retirement plan. Just after 2 months! Super excited!
