UCBA Library’s Reference and Web Services Librarian, Michelle McKinney, enjoyed a fun-filled day of bookish adventures in nearby, Columbus Ohio on Saturday, April 14, 2018. Here’s how she spent the day… Continue reading →
The UC Blue Ash Library is kicking off a new series called From The Desk Of… which gives you a chance to peer into our work spaces to see where the magic happens.
Instructional Technologies Librarian, Kellie Tilton has graciously opened her doors to share her workspace and favorite office items with us.
“This is my office! I live in 115B! Typical thumbs up in a photo.”
“I take advantage of my metal bookshelf to host an array of photos of friends and loved ones. Also, my office is almost always freezing, so note my heater and two blankets. Office Essentials!”
“The top two shelves of my bookcase are a place for all my weird toys. Every office needs a TARDIS and a golden snitch, in my opinion. That third shelf is my craft shelf. You never know when you’ll need cardstock, spray adhesive or foam board.”
“I love the Disney Vinylmation, and like to grab new ones if I’m near the park. I just had a conference in Orlando, so I got some new ones for my office.”
“Part of my job is to make instructional objects which means I have a fancy mic and soundbooth in my office. And by fancy I mean we made it using a cardboard box and $20 soundproof inserts. But it works! I love it.”
“I never quite grew out of the collage decorating phase. Postcards, pictures, quotes, comics all live together in a mish-mash. Some of which has traveled with me for years.”
“These guys chill under my monitor and make me super happy. That bird totally chirps if I whistle at it! The keychain? Adorably angry. And Dancing Groot is just the best. At the holidays, I bring in my Holiday Dancing Groot.”
“Washi Tape + Chapstick + Pens = Essentials. (That may or may not be every single color of Sharpie pen available.) (I love them.)”
“I can’t fit all the buttons I get on my lanyard, so up on the bulletin board they go! (Bonus shot of my parents and brother in a photobooth!) (Also, if you haven’t, read The Book Thief. So good.)”
“The Post-It note collection. I will not be the first librarian to feature this, I promise.”
“Holiday decorations + co-worker presents live together in harmony all year round on the top of my shelf. The raven’s name is Poe and I dig his party hat.”
“Theatre is one of my favorite things and I love how colorful these posters are. (Also, that negative space Cinderella in the glass slipper? Love.)”
“I hate blank walls, so posters are my go-to. The green one with the braids is the entire book of Anne of Green Gables. The Every 4 Years is from the last World Cup. (Normally there is 75% more paper and Post-Its scattered across my desk.)”
“Don’t be deceived by the blank whiteboard. Come fall, it will be filled with my schedule for the week. Also, my hydration/caffeination station on full display. (DFTBA!)”
“This is my office chandelier. I may nurse a slight obsession with chandeliers – so shiny! It’s really a Christmas ornament from Macy’s that’s hanging by Scotch tape and a dream. Really classes up the joint!”
“Thanks for visiting!”
