Undefined Librarian Receives Honorable Mention and Accolades from Mom

It looks like once you have a full-time position you don't have as much time to dedicate to personal blogging. This is not to say that I haven't been blogging; to the contrary. I have been blogging most days for my work blog. So, I haven't totally abandoned making contributions to the Internet. I'm just doing it on behalf of my company. It has definitely been really interesting for me, and it's nice to have a clearer focus when writing.

Aside from my job, there has been an important development in the research I completed during my MLIS. My co-researcher and I decided to submit our research for an award at the ALISE conference this year. Although we did not come away with the award, the research did receive an honorable mention in the category:
Jury Chair Allison G. Kaplan (Wisconsin) noted the paper "deserved special recognition for (its) ground breaking study." This paper arose from a Guided Research project completed by Natasha as part of her MLIS program.
This is the first time that the association has ever given an honorable mention, so that's definitely something. Well, one thing's for sure, my mom is really proud of me.

In any case, I'm considering doing more research in this area, although it will probably be in the distant future. My husband and I have just begun an enormous renovation project, and needless to say, the timing is all wrong right now.
