I thought I would give you a tour of where I work. In keeping with Jeremiah's From the Ground up, all these photos were taken from the floor.
To start, here is my desk. It is old because it is an old school building. I am the school librarian. These days, the librarian is often called the library media specialist. In an old building, you can still be the librarian.
This is one of the most popular areas in the stacks. At the top are the 796s--sports. Near the bottom is poetry at 811 and 821. On the very bottom shelf are most of the joke books at 818.
This shelf of fiction is also popular. You may see why on the bottom shelf. I notice I need to remove some old shelf labeling, as the oversized books are no longer kept on that shelf.
In many ways we are very up-to-date, but we still have a card catalog instead of the OPAC (Online Patron Access Catalog). I teach my students how to use both, because a catalog is a catalog!
I did have a floor up picture of my file cabinet, but I accidentally deleted it, and it is pretty ugly anyway.
