Daily Thoughts 10/22/2018

I checked the library Twitter and Facebook this morning.

I also read some more of Prediction Machines on the way to work.  The authors are describing how data is what makes prediction possible.  They mention big data as a driver for artificial intelligence.

I checked the displays and the gift books.

I placed some orders for new books.

I also checked some items that were not in the computer system to see if they should be added or discarded today.

I spent some time working on scheduling for next month.

I read a copy of Library Journal and the New York Times Book Review.

I spent some time at the public computers.

We had a Fundamentals of Computers Class and a Beginning Microsoft Word class tonight.

I placed a hold on the book, Stay Fit for Life: More Than 60 Exercises to Restore Your Strength and Future Proof Your Body by Joshua Kozak.

I am ordering the book, The Art of Reading, An Illustrated History of Books In Paint, by Jamie Camplin and Maria Ranauro.  I think it will be useful.
