Finally a Graduate!

December 15, 2012 That is the day that I walked across the stage to receive my degree! I enrolled in my first three LIS courses in August of 2011 and went to school full-time for four semesters, while also working full-time. It was a LOT of work but well worth it.

Repairing a loose binding

So here is a long overdue post. Sadly, this was the last repair I was able to do in the UCF Special Collections department. At least it was a fun last project. Warning! This is a picture heavy post! This was probably one of my favorite repairs. I love that there were multiple things that needed doing and I really enjoyed bringing the book back to life. Sadly, it was my last repair job at UCF as of now, but maybe I will be allowed to come repair items as a volunteer here when I get more free time! Continue reading Repairing a loose binding
