Been meaning to get this going for a long time.
I am living the summer between my first and second years of library school. I called myself a librarian for the first time two days ago at a party.
This summer I have been working as an intern at Columbia University, in the archives where I am am processing the papers of Sylvia Ardyn Boone, who was the first African American female tenured professor at Yale University. I have been volunteering with the New York Public Library’s Correctional Services Department fielding reference questions from inmates incarcerated primarily within the New York State Department of Corrections (I first typed that as “Questions” fitting, quite fitting…)
I have some assignments I’ve given myself related to getting published in the library world.
Did I mention I’m trying to blaze the food librarian trail?
It is high time I started thinking of and calling myself a librarian.
It all starts today. Well, technically, last Saturday.
