No, not the shiny diamond kind – although I did lose a tiny diamond out of my eternity ring today…
Paul Hagon suggested we all answer four questions today about the tools we use to get our jobs done – based on a site run by Daniel Bogan. I thought it sounded like a fun idea, so here’s my take, based on my office at work in Hawera LibraryPlus, not my home office which is also my art workroom.
- Who are you, and what do you do? My name’s Cath Sheard and I’m the Libraries and Cultural Services Manager at South Taranaki District Libraries. I manage seven libraries, a museum and the arts position. I’ve been with Council 24 years this November.
- What hardware do you use? I have an HP SurfacePro and most of the time I use it with a lovely big screen so my myopic vision isn’t tested to the limit.
- And what software? Microsoft Office everything, and Koha as our library management software.
- What would be your dream setup? Similar to what I have now in many ways but “nicer”. Large desk where I can keep everything out of line of sight except for what I’m working on. Matching furniture with a large comfy 8 hour plus chair. Pinboard on the wall for things that inspire me. Great temperature control. Calm, open space and a nice view out the window, but behind me so I have to chose to look at it.
