Yay for learning!

Yes it’s been a while. A literal slump in life and learning and librarianship. Including a fractured ankle, surgery and being laid up for a month (2 more weeks to go), just as the worst 3 months of pollution in Beijing drew to a close.

But I’m feeling more energised (amazing what waking up only a few times a night can do vs. not being able to sleep at all) and have started a great new project on revamping our libguides – which has led to the fact that I need to learn me some Javascript – which weirdly has me excited enough to be excited about learning again. Not a lot, not at programmer level, but just enough to do some fancy things like in this AMAZING skills guide from York University. So really I have to thank York University and their amazing librarian Steph Jesper and Springshare for getting me out of the slump.

More after I’ve actually achieved something.

  1. Yikes! Sorry to you’ve been laid up, Nadine, I hope you are soon fully recovered.

    Yes, nothing like a new project to get you energized, a new set of tools in your armory. Looking forward to seeing what you can do.

    All best wishes,

    John
