Happy Wednesday! I hope your week is going well. I can’t believe we are already to the middle of the week. Today’s post will be short as I have just a few updates on some speaking gigs this week. (Also, I really have a bunch of stuff to do before leaving for a conference at the end of the week, so I best get to that instead of doing a very long blog post, dear readers.)
Tonight I’m speaking to the Library Connection group about information literacy instruction. Library Connection is organized in part by one of the student groups at San Jose State’s School of Library and Information Science. It should be fun, but as per usual I’m finding last minute stuff I want to include in the presentation. Luckily it’s not until 7:30 this evening. If you are in the Bay Area, stop on by. It’s being held at Cal State East Bay’s University Library.
On Friday and Saturday of this week I’ll be down in San Jose for the Society of California Archivists’ Annual General Meeting (AGM). Hopefully there will be wifi and I’ll be posting some session summaries during the conference. I’ll be chairing a panel on Saturday at 10:30am, so do stop by and say hello. It should be a great discussion on networking, professional development, job searching, and more.
So that’s all I have today, as I’ll hopefully be posting multiple times later this week from the conference. Oh, but writing about speaking gigs made me think of a Lifehacker article, so I have to share it: How to Overcome Burnout when You’re a Superachiever. It’s a good read for all of us stressed by the end of the academic year craziness and those just stressed in general.
As a middle of the week break, check out Festo’s Aqua Penguins:
Take care, have a great rest of your week, and I’ll be back on Friday with some conference session notes. Allons-y!
