purging and packing
i'm in the last stages of packing. my office is nearly cleared out. i delivered three boxes of books to jessica albano, one of my favorite friends and colleagues here at UW and one of my favorite librarians of all time, with hopes that UW libraries will put them to good use. i recycled about 3-4 boxes worth of papers, tests, articles, syllabi, etc. it's amazing to see how much stuff i'm getting rid of. it's liberating to purge stuff that was so important just a year or two ago. i have to say, it sure will be nice to get out of this building.
in september project news, libraries from three new countries just signed up:
- from china, the art library of museum of site (MOST), in hong kong, signed up again this year.
from pakistan, the founders (the foundation of development, educational reforms & social services), in taxila, has just signed up to participate.
from zimbabwe, the bulawayo public library, in bulawayo, is participating.
now on to packing and purging my apartment. with luck, that should be done in a day or two. and then, beginning this friday, sarah and i will attend my twentieth high school reunion in beautiful san luis obispo, california!
