This week in the library I continued working with the librarian to update the new equipment. After trouble shooting with the AMSI ADI Integrated Systems electronic scanner and web based program that monitors and counts electronics and other equipment issued via the library media center I created a notebook to track/document the outgoing equipment from the school. This equipment included computers, monitors, printers, TV’s, DVD/VCR players, scanners etc.
Later in the week I did regular library tasks like managing circulation. I partially cleared the circulation desk of some of its clutter (due to a busy wee) of fiction titles mostly that were checked out by various classes. I also had the opportunity to work with a tenth grade English class that was visiting the library to work on a research project. Their research inquiries ranged from Yellow Fever to slavery. I was able to direct one student to the 600’s to search the shelves that were beneath a decorative figure of a physician, and another I printed out a sheet that contained all the titles that covered slavery. I walked her over to the 300’s then to the 900’s and 92’s. It was a busy week with Black History projects and research assignments in the making to say the least. Students were buzzing for information and excited about the spring time climate change.
