A day in life of bernadette

  1. 1. A day in the life of Bernadette at Berkeley College
  2. 2. 8:15- 8:40: Arrive at the library – Happy Monday! • Catch up with Bill & Edwin. • Update Bill on FAS classes and on the Student Veteran Event I attended on Thursday. • Review presentation for FAS 245 class. • Have a cup of tea to get the morning started!
  3. 3. 8:40 – 9:20 : Deliver FAS 245 session (8th FAS IL session of the quarter!). Make a note to make a minor changes to presentation to include the report function in StyleSight. I live demoed it in class and students and Professor found it very helpful.
  4. 4. 9:20 – 9:40 • Browse the emails received over the weekend. • A FAS faculty member requested a documentary God Save My Shoes. We do not currently have this title – read reviews online and have decided to add it to our collection. • Read and responded to remaining emails.
  5. 5. 9:40 – 11:25: • Manned the Circulation desk with our new student worker Edwin – handled simple student requests and updated the Reference Blitz document since its week 6 already! • Started the write up of the Veteran and Student and Faculty even I attended last week to share in the Library Buzz. • Investigated an overdue textbook – student took it out on Thursday and didn’t return it – there is a note on her record from Matthew that this student took a different textbook overnight a few months ago and claimed to not know the policy – chatted with Bill for advice on how to proceed. • Minutes later the student returns the book and I bring her for a sit down policy discussion with Bill – what timing!
  6. 6. 11:25 – 1:30: Head to GEC 415 tele-conference class. This class is being piloted in NYC and WST, Professor Miller splits his time between the two campuses. I cover the classroom in NYC on Mondays when the Professor is in WST and Jim covers the WST classroom while the Professor is in NYC on Wednesdays. Today we focused on reviewing the material for their mid- terms, we split both classes into teams and played a question and answer game – even with the students being in two different locations they were all very engaged and even had some NYC vs. WST rivalry!
  7. 7. 1:30-2:30 Lunch!
  8. 8. 2:30 – 3:30: Both of the student workers scheduled to work the Circulation desk at 41st have called out sick – Bill, Paul and I are all hands on deck covering Circ and Reference. Answered a few reference questions and helped a group of students format their PowerPoint presentation.
  9. 9. 3:30 – 4:30: • Manned the reference desk and prepared for tomorrow’s FAS IL session. • Researched FAS documentaries for Professor Joi Pratt. Found a great video online on the manufacturing of Marc Jacobs handbags. 4:30: Bon Voyage Library – see you tomorrow!
