Welcome! I've always thought being an archivist would be pretty cool! You fit in here just fine as far as I'm concerned.

I'm a high school librarian, and I'm not sure many people would call me organized in my personal life, but being organized in my professional life is fairly easy, for some reason. . . . . . There is a lot about library science that can be learned, but some things that are the most important can't be taught. When I interview a candidate for assistant, the thing I look for most is whether he/she likes teenagers--the one thing I can't show them how to do. I guess what I'm saying here is not to let organization (or lack of it) in your personal life be the deciding factor in whether you pursue a degree in library science. Follow your heart.

Welcome! So glad you're here! emoticon

And by museum curator, I do mean a curatorial assistant. ;)

I mean, I do a lot of archival work, and really enjoy various book smells, so that makes us somewhat kindred, right?

I have considered presuing an education in library science, but I'm not sure I'd be very good at it. Despite my current job, I'm terribly unorganized.

Anyway, If you don't think I think in with all of you, I can leave, and will take no personal offenses. ;)
