Library Day in the Life (Round 6) – Thursday


I work as an Academic Support Officer at the University of Warwick Library. This role sits within Academic Services and I work on an array of exciting research and development projects and support the Academic Support Librarians with enquiries and information skills sessions. This job is certainly never dull – everyday is different.

Another bumper packed day – the general theme being videos. The day began with the usual sort through emails and responses/ referrals to relevant people. A quick look over some paperwork for this mornings team meeting which focused today on plans and introductions from two new members of the Enquiry Support team.

The Teaching Grid kindly lent me a camera to capture some footage from a lunchtime session in the Research Exchange – so a quick trip to collect the kit followed the meeting. I then had a look at the Research Exchange Facebook page – there were a few problems with the feed from the blog – but fortunately this problem was easily fixed.

Coffee break was spent at my desk going through the work plan for the Career Development Group, West Midlands. This was followed by my first ever session in the Research Exchange.

Armed with two video cameras and tripods I set up the video recording of a Windows on Research session that was taking place over lunchtime. Once completed I assisted in setting up a room for a seminar and found out a bit more about the general operations of the facility.

A very late and quick-lunch and then back to more general tasks including responding to further questions from the team about statistics, checking through a plan for a Digital Literacy workshop that I am helping LDC out with, uploading the video footage from this lunchtime session and finally looking over the tasks for this weeks 23 Things. Just need to update my 23 things blog now…
