Okay, so I meant to post this on Friday, but better late than never, right?
I did my first ever oral history interview for my special studies class and I think it went pretty well. I learned some good tips from the experience for the next interview which is in just a week and a half. That interview (and the two hour tour and conversation after it) wiped me out for the rest of the week and now I’m catching up.
And of course, I won the student award for the SF Special Libraries Association. It’s still a surprise. What is also awesome about it is it comes with a free year of membership, which is perfect timing because I just got an email saying it was almost time to renew.
I hope you’re having a lovely weekend. Here’s some links!
