It occurred to me yesterday that I have now worked in the library for longer (five years and two months) than my former boss did (four years and five months). I haven't yet been the director for longer -- that's about half a year off -- but still. And yet, there's a part of me that still feels like I'm the temporary custodian of her library. I'm sure that's largely because it's named in her memory, so in a very real way, it is her library and always will be. Still, it's a weird feeling. Especially when I consider how many people there are around now who never knew her at all. Students, of course, since the student population is ever-shifting, but faculty and staff, too.
In less discomfiting news, I got a whole stack of DW invite codes today. So if anyone is interested, let me know.
