I got the job with FIT! I'm now working at the Gladys Marcus Library, and my new title is Access Services Manager (inflated job speak for Circulation Manager--also I manage inter-library loans). I've known for awhile now but didn't want to say anything until it was official. I start May 1st, and I'm super excited but also tremendously nervous since I've never been a departmental manager and have never managed a staff as large as this one (six part time circ clerks and 14 students). I'm also a bit nervous about having to learn a whole new automation system. Any library people familiar with ALEPH? I hear it's a little like Voyager.
The cool thing is...Mr. T and I will be going to the same place every day and can probably ride the train in together. Also, T's tuition will be free now and if I (or Seamus) wanted to attend FIT it would also be free for us. Great, great benefits all around, and very friendly co-workers. My hours are great...off at 4:00 everyday and three day weekends in the summer. I'm definitely going to love working in Manhattan again. I've moved from the Village to the Garment District. I think I'm going to like it here.
