Safe and Sound

We had a bit of a scare on Saturday. Our little Toyota Corolla was sideswiped by a semi truck on 495N on Saturday just before 6pm when we were returning from a daytrip to Fredericksburg, VA. We are so lucky that all we lost was the front bumper of our car, some of the front…

Gone to look for America

We just got back from a whirlwind four day trip from suburban DC (MD) to Chattanooga, Nashville, Memphis, Little Rock, back to Memphis, St Louis, Charleston and back home again. 3,000 miles later we are madly addicted to the open road. Perhaps there is some way we can combine trucking and librarianship? We spent this…

One of those days

Must Follow: Archives Gig

When I first began working on the daily INALJ jobs email it was less than 20 pages long in no small part because I had no idea about the wealth of resources available for librarians, library staff, archivists and other information professionals seeking work.
