Yup. I am applying for Professional Registration through LIANZA, New Zealand’s Library and Information Association. Wish me luck, hope my application gets accepted!
I get paid $133.42 more a fortnight, as a Lib Tech, than I did as an LA, for what seems like a lot more stress. Why am I so much more stressed now, as a tech, than when I was as an LA just a couple of months ago? In the same team no less. Money isn’t everything.
So you have a weighty text in your hands. You find out it cost AUD$231.15. You better bloody make sure that it’s been catalogued right, because if you haven’t, you’ve just wasted your organizations money by “cataloguing” an unsearchable text. Effectively lost it.
Lost it. Don’t lose it.
Take your job seriously.
