Engineering Office Hours Weeks 8-10

Got an actual question on week 8, a procedural one about a request for a database that I would love us to have.

Out with schedule conflicts on week 9.  I hate to be inconsistent like that, but both were very high priority items.  Normally I'm very protecive of my Engineering time.

Week 10: Not sure which was a bigger hit, the bowl of candy corn or the announcement of the George Boole exhibit.  The software engineering/computer science folks really liked having someone whose work was essential to the development of computers featured in the library.

Wednesday, got a joke to bring home and the possibility of a faculty workshop on library resources for next semester.  And all the candy corn was eaten so brought more.

Engineering Office Hours Weeks 3 - 7

It's been good to have a routine for every Tuesday and Wednesday in Engineering.  The faculty are getting accustomed to my presence and often stop by to chat.  In the beginning of the semester the faculty have been focused on getting courses started, getting labs set up, and helping students with their schedules.  I've had some interaction with Communications and FYS faculty who visit the area as well.

Today, some friendly banter led to two questions I *wish* I  could log and maybe helping find a standard.   The wish questions are, "what is the meaning of life?" and "why is it 42?" 


The toys are popular.   I need some variety.
