Today Is a Good Day

Over the last year, I have tried to create a corporate library that proactively reaches out to its patrons. I've created a e-newsletter, I've begun creating awareness vignettes that highlight Fitch's resources, and I've created an online presence that easily connects patrons with the same resource that I use for research. Each step of the way, I feel that I've added value to the library and to the organization as a whole. More importantly, I've gone above expectations by raising the bar of what Fitch's Resource Library should and could be.

Today our office had its first annual meeting. Not only did I get two rounds of applause for the work I've done at Fitch--the co-manager of Fitch's American offices specifically praised me for the changes that I have initiated. Furthermore, he indicated that his praise was based on both what he has seen as well as what he has heard from other associates.

What a great feeling.

My hopes are to continue the Resource Library's evolution, to always remain beta (thank you Don Barlow), and to continue Fitch's growth as a learning organization.
