I leave early Friday for Monterey and Internet Librarian 2005. I hope to see many colleagues and friends and spend some time taking libraries and tech. See you there and please say HI! I’ll be moderating the Public Libraries and Technology track all day Monday — hope to see you there!
Sometimes we rely too heavily on rules, protocols and procedures. The best policies and practices in libraries are those that can be bent or ignored when the situation calls for it. I admire those managers and administrators that get that and see the difference between micro-management/never break the rules and those that realize we are all in this big thing called life together and yes stuff happens. Like someone wanting to use the phone. Thanks FGL for the reminder.
Via Jessamyn – http://www.useit.com/alertbox/weblogs.html What great stuff. I love to read a blog author bio as well as see who is writing! That puts a human element in all this blog stuff. And always remember: you are writing for your “future boss!”
