Hello again! I lasted posted about my experience of my Librarianship MA in week 5 of semester 1. It’s now post-Christmas, the start of 2019 and a lot has happened since then!
My trainee year may be over, but I’m back! In September I moved my life up north to start the MA Librarianship course at the University of Sheffield. I haven’t had chance to post up until now (more on that later) so here’s a bit of a catch up on what I’ve been up to…
I didn’t post the promised update after my final week at work (as my boyfriend and mother, both readers of this blog, keep reminding me), probably because I didn’t want to admit it was all over! Continue reading “Reflections on My Trainee Year”
After last week’s crazy week, it’s been a bit of a struggle getting back into routine – for myself and for the students. Of course, the fact that it’s nearly the summer holidays hasn’t helped! Continue reading “This week in the library: back to routine…”

Yep, you read that right! This week we were very lucky to be visited in our library by author Sara Grant, who writes the Chasing Danger books. This experience was something we won by taking part in the CWIZZ, run by CWISL, a little while ago.
Summer is definitely here – the year 11s and year 13s are gone, the younger years are taking exams, and the sun is out.
Apologies for not posting an update last week – Friday was busy so I didn’t get round to writing one! I’m deliberately setting some time aside today for reflecting on the last couple of weeks and everything I’ve been up to. We’re 2 weeks into the last half term of the year now (how did that happen?!) and I’ve had lots on. Continue reading “This week in the library: an update from the first 2 weeks back”
You may have noticed I’ve already posted once this week. After attending an SLA event for new professionals on Tuesday I decided to write about it, so you can find that here. The rest of my week has been fairly normal… Continue reading “This week in the library: another half term gone…”
On Tuesday this week I attended the Career Stories and Advice for Students and New Professionals event run by SLA Europe. I hadn’t been to anything like this before so I was really excited to see what would be said, what advice would be given, and who I’d get to talk to. Continue reading “SLA New Professionals Event”
