My Last Day
Tomorrow is my last day working with the Johnson County Library. I started here in a new position just over two years ago. We experienced a lot of changes, in structure, personnel, and software. We implemented a content management system from Sweden, designed and/or redesigned many Web sites (please see my portfolio for an overview), implemented ILLiad and upgraded (two interface designs), created a Flash literary map, started several podcasts, implemented CONTENTdm, two calendar systems, and much more than I can remember right now.
I have grown a lot over these last two years (sadly in the waistline as well, *sigh*), understanding software and Web technologies much better from theoretical and practical aspects. I work with a lot of fantastic people with exemplary and forward ideas; who understand and are the essence of what libraries can be. I hope I can take these experiences with me and provide to our troops the services the Johnson County Library exemplifies. This still doesn’t feel real, but I imagine as I pack up my belongings tomorrow it will start to sink in.
