Library day in the life

If you’re interested in what goes on behind the scenes in libraries, or would like to learn more about the range of things that librarians do, then this week offers you that chance!

Library day in the life started in 2008, as a way for librarians and information professionals to ‘share and learn about the joys and challenges of working in a library’. It’s now on round 6, and over 100 people have signed up to blog and tweet about their professional activity this week.

You can see the list of participants on the library day in the life wiki. You can follow #libday6 tweets, or look out for blog tagged with ‘librarydayinthelife’. The updates are always interesting, and often surprising, uplifting, amusing, and illuminating too!

If you work in a library yourself, how about signing up, and sharing what you do?
