Day In the Life! Preamble
Hi anyone who’s reading this from the Library Day in the Life project. I work at the Biomedical Library at the University of California San Diego (UCSD). We serve the schools of medicine and pharmacy as well as the biology division. We have about 25 staff including nine librarians. We also have a “branch” at the hospital that has another four staff including two librarians. The UCSD libraries have a big centralized IT department that deals with all the big systems, and my job is to provide local tech leadership – I supervise our desktop support and Information Commons operations and try to at least keep a handle on our participation in digital library projects. Heh. I coordinate our public web presences and also do reference and teach workshops. I’ve been here 13 years.
