Hello, friends! Before I dig into the news of the past few months, I will start with some housekeeping. Going forward, I will post my content to cygnoir.net and syndicate it elsewhere. Some follow-up notes: Facebook and Instagram prevent people from easily syndicating their own content. You won’t see cygnoir.net posts there anymore.You will still see cygnoir.net posts on Mastodon, Micro.blog, Tumblr, and Twitter.If you follow cygnoir.net by email, you may want to unsubscribe, because you’ll be getting a lot more email from this site!
I missed a couple of months of “what I’m doing now” posts. I bet you can guess why. By the end of February, the reality of the COVID-19 pandemic in my small corner of the world was limited to news articles and speculation. By the end of March, I had already been working from home for weeks. Working from home! Even the transition to this has been stunning. Previously, we had never attempted to provide all of our library workers with meaningful and effective remote work, and now we have all made the jump.
