#introduction Hi, I'm Anna. I do #acquisitions and #eresources things at a small liberal arts university. In my spare time, I #sing in two women's choruses, play #softball on two teams (one of which I manage), volunteer at a community #radio station, and watch/listen to #StLCards #baseball games. I also like #weightlifting, #boardgames, and #beer. #hashtagasm
Scientific evidence supporting continued COVID protections such as mask and vaccine mandates at universities https://confessions.scientopia.org/2022/08/22/the-covid-information-series-scientific-evidence-supporting-continued-covid-protections-such-as-mask-and-vaccine-mandates-at-universities/
Instead of getting frustrated with coworker asking me to provide information that will take time I don't have on this first day back from vacation, I pushed back and asked for when the information was needed (it's not urgent). Need to keep working on my own boundaries so I don't stress myself out when coworkers ask for things they don't realize are going to require more resources than I have at the moment.

I'm filling in on the Tuesday Breakfast Blend tomorrow morning. I'll be starting off with a little commentary from a 20th century poet, and then on to sharing songs from a stack of new albums and EPs. Streaming live from 6-8am Eastern on http://wrir.org/.
Feeling pretty chuffed that I figured out how to quickly identify which POLs for databases needing price updates from last year's expenditure (to my knowledge - some of the renewal costs are still unknown) so I don't have to look up every possible POL. Also feeling like past self could be pretty clueless at times.
I've considered doing the same for serials, but most of them get paid in November and don't yet have final pricing, so there's less use for it.

I have 49 emails in my "you need to do something with these" folder and I want nothing to do with any of them today. I'm running out of productive avoidance tasks, though, so I'm probably going to have to dig in. Really connecting with this TikTok, tho. https://email@example.com/video/7091804793915788590?is_from_webapp=1&sender_device=pc&web_id=6928084946650678789
Today it's an invoice that shows as paid in Banner, but there's no payment details and the vendor hasn't received payment. This was processed in March. Our operations manager (who handles the non-pcard payments) didn't notice that no payment information was listed, and just marked it paid in Alma. So, now we're following up on it with 15 days remaining in the fiscal year in stead of two months ago like it should have been done.

glammr.us is a space for folks interested in productive conversation about, well, galleries, libraries, archives, museums, memory work and records. It is pronounce “glamorous” as our work are often charmingly or fascinatingly attractive, especially in a mysterious or magical way. Sometimes it is also full of excitement, adventure, and unusual activity (oh, yes). It is also inspired by Toys’R’us to showcase the fun playful side of glammr.us tooters.
