The Message, Gerard Terborch, 1660
Daily Thoughts 03/01/2017
I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.
I also checked the displays and the gift books. Today is the first day of Women's History month.
I am in the computer lab now. I did a little more work with programming today. I am trying to think of something for National Library Week.
I spent a little time working with a colleague on ordering for new books.
On the way to work, I read some of Beyond Competitive Advantage. I am reading about how successful companies create their own theories to gain advantage. The author uses a diagram from Walt Disney to describe the vision of the founder and how it led to sustained competitive advantage.
I also read some more of The Existentialist Cafe Freedom, Being, and Apricot Cocktails. This author is both a descripton of existentialism and phenomenology and a kind of personal memoir on how the philosophy was part of Sarah Bakewell's life.
I am looking at the Urban Librarians Unite conference. The teacher for my Management of Technology Course, Carson Block, will be there on April 7, 2017. https://www.urbanlibrariansconference.org/
I am having some people check for damaged items in the collection.
I read some more of Beyond Competitive Advantage on the way home. I learned about a new concept in management, cross-sight the ability to see synergies and assets across a corporation.
