finally. some dirty work with the accession & acquisitions section :D

jed *referring to Gerard* and i were to accession a shelf of books complete with the stamps and embedding of the security strip.

let's define that dirty work i was saying:

hands on job  )

but as always, we were all hyped up to do the job while forever listening to dj earworm's awesome mashups and a few old school songs that were playing over the radio. the assigned task which was suppose to be for 2 days was finished in just a day.

can i just say that we are an awesome duo? \m/ we are unstoppable! *pumps fist*
although right now my knuckles are hurting because of the hand jobs...LOL.

we finished the whole shelf that has 5 rows of paperback/hardbound books of various thickness and sizes. these books are not your normal books. these are engineering books and damn they do cost a lot! the most expensive book i accessioned was about 12,000+ php *___* that's the reason for the security strips and of course, the sensors by the library doors if anyone dares to pull it out by illegal means.

out of all the things that i did, i was quite amused on how to put the security strip on the book.
very, very sneaky indeed ^^

as for my entry title up there *points at the title*
i had this super roflmao moment while treating the books...

imagination might help XD )
the cotton trees in UP have "bloomed" already! 

call girl?

for this day, my work buddy and i was transferred to the acquisitions section.
we have 3 days in this department before transferring to another one (i think it will be the circulation section next).

ma'am reina, the head of the acquisitions, has given us a list of books that were acquired from year 2007 up to the present year and we were to provide the call number assigned to the accession numbers of the books. basically, we just searched the books in the iLib and copied the call number from it and pasted it to the excel file that was given to us. 

there were 1,500+ books that was listed there and...we kinda finished them already, haha XD
we were given 2 days to finish it actually but we were too excited because of the change of assignments and had the drive to finish them all. ^^;;

supposedly today was a half day for our work, but being the young and energetic interns that we are, we said that we're going to go full day :D most of us arrived at 8am to start off good, but apparently there was a problem with the LAN network of the lib so we couldn't start...

well, we ended up camwhoring in front of mac's webcam for the first 2 hours XD 

basically it was a lazy wednesday work for us because most of the employees are on half day. our afternoon was spent planning and brainstorming for our project proposal regarding engg lib's new brand launching. talk about complete marketing blueprint *.*

i was assigned to the IT and creative committee... and i'm not actually confident with the IT part. i'm glad that Gerard's the head of the comm. he's good with the know-how of those stuffs. then we had a session of library themes and slogans. the suggestions ranged from simple, techie, a bit lyrical, to downright retard XD 
all in all it was a great day with my work buddies. ^^;; 
i'll be looking forward to my summer ojt with this bunch.
happy long weekend everyone! 
i'll be heading to Bicol tomorrow morning so no updates from me until Easter Sunday ^^;;

Gerard, this one's for you! hahaha

i started my ojt last week at the UP Engg Lib 2 which, if i may say, the most modern and innovative lib i have ever visited. the awesome thing about it is that every aspect of the library was conceptualized purely by a librarian. From fixes, furnitures, services and even the color palette of the interior, they were all ideas of a librarian, the dynamic librarian. 

i'm currently assigned to the serials department of the lib where i religiously index articles on technology from Manila Bulletin's Tech 101 section. my load is pretty okay, specially when you're around iMacs *.* so far i've finished 3 months worth of articles already. reading articles on latest gadgets, innovations, technology and even gaming makes me feel like a tech geek already. sometimes, while browsing through the articles, i tend to research on them online and really look into it in detail which somehow delays my work, hahaha. but it's nothing serious that would totally distract me from my work. our mod encourages us to be interested with the things we work on.

it's different when you "do" your work and "love" your work. 

my work buddy, Gerard is accusing me already of getting addicted with indexing XD i can finish one month of articles in one day, haha. 

FML moment right here. )

my only consolation for today: making the most out of the super clear iMac screen that allows me to stare at the reflection of my cute fellow trainee as i work on my station ^^ talk about a nice view in any angle, hahaha
