friday five

1. Where do you currently work?

I am the manager of circulation services of a university library.

2. How many other jobs have you had and where?

The short list is: as the daytime circulation supervisor of a university library, as the receptionist and then resource librarian of an architectural firm, as the library research specialist at an ebooks start-up, as a student assistant and then full-time circulation assistant at a university’s medical library, as a sales associate in a women’s clothing store, a department store, and a sporting goods store.

3. What do you like best about your job?

I adore the people I work with, and I like helping patrons find what they’re looking for.

4. What do you like least about your job?

I dislike dealing with issues in an attempt to clear them up, only to have them thwarted by endless meetings and garbled communication with other departments, or just by a lack of resources.

5. What is your dream job?

Something that merged my poetic skill with library work, but that did not require me to teach classes in either discipline.

I acknowledge that I live and work on stolen Cowlitz, Clackamas, Atfalati, and Kalapuya land.
I give respect and reverence to those who came before me.
