I wanted to come on here to say a good bye. This will be my last blog post for ACRLog. I began writing for ACRLog about 3 years ago, when I was right out of library school and starting my first professional job.
ACRLog has allowed me the opportunity to voice my thoughts about not only academic librarianship, but social issues like DACA or the current state of library residency positions.
At first, I saw this writing opportunity as a way for me to let my thoughts out and provide some type of productive advice. Recently, I was on an on-campus interview and near the end of a meeting, one of the librarians told me that she had enjoyed some of my job-hunt related posts. It made me smile because I thought, “wow, people actually read my articles!” As silly as it might sound, sometimes when you’re writing a blog post, you don’t think that anybody is going to read it.
I want to take this opportunity to say thank you to everyone who read any of my (sometimes very long) blog posts. I also want to thank the ACRLog team for being the supportive and kind librarians I can look up to.
As some might know, my time as a Resident Librarian has come to an end at American University. I will be moving to the Boston area where I will continue with academic librarianship. I hope to see some of you around!
