Library Day in the Life – Round 7

July 28th, 2011

Station platform

Station platform, where my morning commute begins.

For this round of Library Day in the Life, a project which aims to capture the day-to-day lives of librarians and other information professionals around the globe, I decided to put together a photo diary. You can see the results here:

Photo Diary Day 1

Photo Diary Day 2

It was really interesting to see how using a photo diary changed the day for me. It made my participation in the event far more visible: both to my colleagues, who saw me photographing everything, and to my non-library friends, as I shared the photos through Google Plus. I got far more comments and engagement from non-librarians than I’ve ever had before with this exercise!

You’ll notice that there are few people in my photos: I was somewhat wary about the complexities of getting permission. I hope it hasn’t made it look like I don’t interact with people during my day, as I do very little else!
