Upcoming Projects, Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Continuing Contract Track

I’m going through the summer schedule today, and it looks like it’s a busy one. Usability testing, video scripting and vetting, data analysis, conference planning, presentation creation, lots and lots of article writing, and bribing journal editors to publish me after writing said articles.

My job schedule aside, I have some plans for http://yobj.net during this summer as well. First, I’ll probably be tinkering around with the blog code so it can be nice and validate or come very close to validating so there won’t be many accessibility issues. The front page may see some more content and maybe even a little CSS, but that depends on my mood at the moment.

The major project that I have planned is to create a comprehensive website dedicated to library technical services. This site will have three aims:

  • Serve as a place where people can learn about Technical Services
  • Provide a centralized resource for Technical Services online resources
  • Provide an online community for current and future Technical Services librarians and staff

I should have some form of this website up and running by the end of summer, right when the students come back. 😉 If any of you would be interested in helping with this project, leave a comment below or email me at b.yoose (AT) gmail (DOT) com.
