Get ready for your Snapshot, Washington libraries!

Apologies for a massive posting frequency delay due to permasick*

A day in the life of Washington's medical libraries

On Tuesday, April 12, 2011, Washington will join over 30 states that have participated in the American Library Association’s (ALA) Library Snapshot Day project.

Don’t miss out! Check out the WA Library Snapshot wiki, join on Facebook, and medical & other health libraries sign yourselves up at http://tinyurl.com/wasnapshot2 I fully expect to see many medical librarians in action while attending rounds, answering complex research questions, tackling they want an arm AND a leg?! electronic resources budget increases, teaching and generally being full of awesome.

*Permasick: A pervasive state of malaise that has sucked out nearly all my brain raison d’être energy with coughing, congestion, fever, coughing, wheezing AND rales, coughing, and general bleh from mid-December until now. It is not pertussis or a sarcoidosis relapse, so I’m thankful for that. Bonus: Two distinct rounds of permasick for our son, where the second round resulted in a double ear infection with enough fluid backup to affect his hearing, conjunctivitis, and the beginning of bronchitis. That relapse combo resulted in him having antibiotics for only the second time in his 8.5 year life and missing a big family wedding. Permasick is not the flu nor a simple cold, and the coughing doesn’t seem to ever go away.
