One of the unspoken questions that come up for myself and my classmates is “Are we going to survive these classes?” or “Is there life after Lib102 or Lib105?” Sometimes you need to see a living example of those that came before you in the program, just to let you know that this is doable.

Jitka was a student in the Library Technology program and now is a staff member in the Technical Services department. Our class had a session on preparing books and she was our instructor for the evening.
A very patient instructor. I can't tell you the number of books that we mangled, more from nerves than anything else. Well that and clumsy fingers. She was very calm and reassuring.
This is just a quick video on what we experienced. We hope to get a lot better at prepping books. We can't get any worse. I'm looking forward to the repair class, I have a book or two in need of repair. I will not be so worried about goofing up a brand new book.
