Nice to hear from you. So far, I've only been at the SLU Law Library position a few times, as I was out of town taking my son to college and then I had out of town company visiting me. But so far, I am really enjoying it. I was at a meeting today of Gov Docs Librarians and met the SLU Law Gov Docs librarian there and she told me everyone at the library was happy to have me. So that feels good!

In the meantime, I continue to look for full-time work. Right now, the most promising f/t positions are: a Reference and Instruction position at SIUE and a Prospect Research Analyst position at Wash U. The latter job is not a "traditional" library job, but involves doing a lot of database research on behalf of the University. Having to stay in the St. Louis area is very limiting, but at least there seem to be some worthwhile options. The f/t SLU job I found out indirectly is not going to me. I really was not qualified, and it is a 100 per cent circulation job, which also is not my interest. Whatever happens, I will continue working at SLU Law Library on weekends because I enjoy it very much and it is a good way to keep my foot in the door.

How is your job going? How do you like living in Oklahoma City? Let's keep in touch.

Take care and thanks again for writing.

Hi, Karen. Happy end of the semester. Just wanted you to know that while I continue to look for full-time work, I just landed a job as a part-time Reference Librarian for SLU Law Library. This is primarily weekend work, but it sounds really interesting and something right up my alley and a way to get my foot in the door as I continue hunting down full-time employment.

Hope your summer is going well. I am excited also about graduating and going on a much needed family vacation next week.

Take care.

Hi, Karen. I've been busy but wanted to respond to your question about comps. They were not that difficult. If you find some source materials ahead of time based on the hints and give yourself lots of time that week to do all the outlining and writing, you'll do fine.

Enjoy your summer.

Hi, Karen.
I have applied for a number of jobs and I am continuing to be on the lookout for things. The SLU job turned out not to be entry level (Head of Access Services) but I applied anyway. I also applied for positions at Wash U and SIUE and I have a resume in with the County Library System. I am assuming the first job out will be hardest to get, especially since I have to stay in St. Louis. Also, I ran into one of the librarians I worked with as a practicum student at Wash U and she told me it took 5 months for Wash U to hire her!

Meanwhile, I completed and passed Comps, which is a relief.

I'm curious to know what your job involves. How many staff people are at your library? I bet you will get a lot of experience since I think you told me the library is on the small side.

Enjoy your summer and I'm sure I'll also "see" you in class.

Gail-
Am just getting used to the job. Started on Monday and I'm on the weekend already. It is pretty dead now with everyone studying for the bar. Do you remember those days???

Hope that your summer is not overly hectic.
