March 1, 2011--------LIS 489

Time: 8:00 am to 3:30 pm with a 30 minute break

Tuesday was the day of mostly finishing up processing books that were put into the system. I also helped students find the printers, the patron's log in user name for the computers, check out books, and find books on different topics. A couple of the students needed help finding books on climate environments like deserts. I knew that a class recently brought back books on the topic of different environments, and they were on the return shelf. The books were found from the shelf and then chosen by the students on their specific environment. Some checked out books and some photo copied certain pages.

Part of the processing of the books entailed that the books' outside cover would be covered by plastic sheets to protect the paper outside cover to be torn. The job is tedious but I like completing a job that I started.

I learned that patrons is key, when helping a patron. The librarian would have to work with the paton in finding the right question to ask in order to find a material.
