A bit of good news, I have been hired by the Macalester Library as a Special Projects Associate. This combined with my current position as Visual Resource Curator brings my status up nicely to the full time range and all the job related benefits associated with that. So I am now free to follow my dreams and start skin diving for fresh mussels and um, this. Weee!!!
Anyway, both positions relate very well with each other and it will help define what I do for both much better. I have spent enough time working with people from the Library that I sort of feel like I already work there, and now it is official! So good deal all around.
