Every time I have participated in Library Day in the Life I have taken a different approach to it:
- Round 2 – detailed accounts of my day
- Round 3 – summaries of my day
- Round 4 – daily summaries with pictures
- Round 5 – daily summaries based on my to do list
- Round 6 – videos!
After the videos of round 6 I clearly felt I’d reached my peak and didn’t participate last time around. For round 8 I’m getting back into the game and have yet another new approach. This time I won’t be posting daily, instead I have chosen to keep a detailed log of how I am spending my time during the day and will post an overall summary at the end of the week. I am doing this for one specific reason – to see exactly how much time I spend on different tasks in an average week. I was asked to do this recently for a review of a subject librarian’s activities, but without the time to log exactly what I do the form I submitted contained estimates. I’ve got no idea whether I was even close with my guesses so I’ll be interested to compare that to the resutls from this week’s log.
