Fall semester was busy with lots of instruction. Good to re-acquaint myself with the Biology dept again...old friends and (the mark of a true librarian) a wonderful database, Biological Abstracts. I remember when it was in paper, that rotated index in the back that no one wanted to use. As a matter of fact, I remember using it as an undergrad....rather, trying to use it and leaving the SF State Library in frustration. Never dreamed in 1968 that I would work in libraries! My occupational goal was to hike in the woods....my son Emil has realized my dream, see his friend Leslie's blog about a day in the life of a forester www.happyadventurer2.blogspot.com
My OT class was great this year. Students inOT are wonderful folks, working to bring occupational equity to all kinds of people. I required a telephone consultation this time...spent at least one hour on the phone with each student and really got to know them better. Online courses are convenient for a lot of reasons but I miss the one-to-one time.
I will be on sabbatical during Spring semester and will keep up with SJSU Library through this blogging thingie.
