The library by day

I have worked at the Guelph Public Library for over twelve years, cataloguing books and government material, finetuning the MARC bibliographic and authority structures, working the reference desk, building the collection, and — the accomplishment of which I am most proud — designing and building the local area network in 1999 after immersing myself in the intricacies of TCP/IP and NT Domain administration. Helping to shepherd the library’s technology through its growing pains also ranks up there in my fondest memories. Migrating from NT4 and Windows98 to Windows 2000, XP, and Windows 2003 Server, as well as assisting with the transition of library systems from classic Dynix to Horizon, were among the most challenging tasks I had ever faced.
The windowless basement of the Main Branch of the Guelph Public Library has its need of a little levity, and so the Technical Services Department has its break nook, our little café, to help us get through the day.
