I just took Meredith Farkas’ biblioblogger survery. Got yerself a little ol’ blog? Are you a library person? Then do what I did, and take the survey.
Would you like to work with me? And my topnotch, talented teammates? Under the supervision (and super vision) of Erica Reynolds? There’s an open position in the Johnson County Library Web Content Team, of which I am the junior member (in length of employment there–in terms of age, I’m the oldest or second oldest member). The position primarily involves handling the JoCoHistory website, which means you’d be handling and creating lots of metadata for old photographs and presenting to partnerships and various local organizations, but you’d also be getting in on our brand-spankin’-new library website. We work hard, we play hard, and there are excellent opportunities for professional development. If at all interested, go to the JCL job postings page and follow the application instructions. If you have any questions, ask Erica or me. A number of us are on Facebook, so you can ask us questions there, too.
It was with a heavy heart that, due to a variety of circumstances, I had to miss last night’s Uncontrolled Vocabulary. But in general, I do my utmost to listen and participate in the conversation. And so should you. Why? Cindi Trainor has some reasons for you, so go read her blog. And if you haven’t gone for a ride on the good ship Uncontrolled Vocabulary yet, come aboard and give it a try. I triple dog dare you!
