With some of my loan money for grad school, I bought a new computer. I've never had a new computer before. All I've ever had are old, hand-me-down computers. Jamie thought I should get a new computer because of the grad work I'm doing. I don't know much about computers except for blogging, e-mails, doing simple web-searches and more recently Facebook. Computers are used a lot in the library industry.
I worked at a public library as a teenager, but back then most of the work was done manually. We still used card-catalogs with drawers and library cards were paper that we typed up and had patrons sign. We stamped things, and put the due dates on cards that were inserted into pockets inside of the books. No bar-codes back then. A lot of cool changes have taken place.
