A short post today. I’ve always thought that a librarian needs to know their collection really well. We are weeding at the moment, and we started a sale this morning for items that were pulled out at the end of last year (not by me, because I was on hols in Europe – woohoo!!) . It included some ratty fiction. We don’t get a lot of fiction here, being a TAFE library, but we have a little. I spotted a copy of Lois Bujold’s The Curse of Chalion and Johnny and the Dead and Night Watch, both by Terry Pratchett. I’ve read and enjoyed all three, but thought it would be good to pounce on them and add them to my collection. I know that I don’t have them. I did so. I felt really chuffed.
Then I had a thought as I returned to my office. It happens but sometimes, so I was taken aback. I had no idea that we had any of them. And I should have. I still feel so embarassed….. And that’s all for today.
