#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
I took Facebook off my phone, and I’m kind of surprised and pleased by what happened. http://eclecticlibrarian.net/blog/2019/03/i-took-facebook-off-my-phone/

It's been a relatively quiet week in my inbox, which means lots of time for COUNTER report gathering. I find it very satisfying, though not a task I want to do all the time. #ERLibrarian
When I woke up this morning it was raining, and then snowing big fluffy flakes, then sleet/raining. The rain stopped a couple hours ago and now the sun is out. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ #rvawx
Some stuff has happened at work over the past week that has made it very clear to me that I should not be in an administrative position. The level of workplace politics that has to be maintained, and the chess that is played, is not in my wheelhouse. I can and have been a leader, but not where the stakes are so high that the ethics are so low and the egos rule all.
I have a note to check the Summon top searches every couple of months and add appropriate keywords to databases so they appear as suggestions when users search them. Every time I go into the Summon usage reporting tool, I can't figure out what I did the last time to find this information, and I'm starting to suspect that more often than not I just say "fuck it" and mark the task done without actually doing anything. That's my inclination today, anyway.
