I consider myself a lucky woman for many reasons, but one of them is that I have a really good job. This may sound a little phony, but I sometimes have to remind myself how incredibly important it is to spend your days doing something meaningful.
Like last Friday, when one of our excellent professors came by my office to ask if the library would be interested in participating in a project on his faculty. (Thanks, by the way! Great to have academic staff that takes an interest in the library.) We had a really nice chat about the project and other related projects, which led to me contacting a librarian at a university in Norway and one of my collegues found an app on her phone that makes it possible to use the phone as the library card at the self-checkout station. Maybe not exactely innovation, but intrapreneurship; a new way to do something at your local workplace.
