From the catalogs of babes











{September 9, 2009}   proposal

I went on vacation for a week last week. Before I left, I submitted a proposal  to our library director about researching and implementing a new classification system, one more in line with our students’ needs and behaviors. I suspect from his response–no comments but passing it on to some of the other librarians for review– that he doesn’t really understand what I’m talking about (despite my attempts to use small words).

It was easy to not think about it while I was away, but now that I’m back, I’m kinda nervous. I think that most of the librarians will support it–two of them looked it over and supported the idea before I even submitted it, and I’ve been talking to another about this on and off since the spring. And if it doesn’t move forward, I know it’s not the end of the world–I’d be disappointed, but it’s not like I don’t have plenty of other projects I could work on. I’m just not a big fan of the not-knowing.
