Saturday in Lund

The past weekend I was pretty active. Saturday my friend Eva and I went by train to Lund. We did some minor shopping and just strolled around in the city. There was a genealogy fair in the city hall that we looked at. The different societies and archives had book sales and information about their databases and so on. After returning home, we exchanged Christmas presents! It is ridiculous, but even though we live in the same town, we hardly see each other. The weather has been so bad this year that we haven't done any more trips than necessary.

The rest of the weekend I dusted, vacuumed, did the laundry, went grocery shopping, cleaned the stove, cooked for two lunches and watched winter sports on TV.

Today was a pretty regular Monday, the requests had accumulated over the weekend so we had a lot to do. We are in the process of implementing a sorting function, so that the requests come out of the printer already sorted in picking order. It is one of my more technically gifted colleagues who has devoted his time and effort to making this happen. We have been talking about it for years. It is very difficult because of the complicated call number system. We are in the beginning of it, and there are problems of course, but it seems promising. We lost one part time worker in stacks a week ago (he retired), and he will not be replaced, so we have to get this up and running soon.
