Tale of two worlds

I’m currently in a strange limbo between my old and new jobs. At my old job it is a tale that is reflected across HE – cuts to student numbers therefore cuts to budgets and so on. My new job appears to be a world of optimism where service and quality are the buzz words and the problems in the wider HE world are something that occurs on the news.
I hope that things improve in the general HE world – it really will be a blow for the country if things are destroyed.
At the moment I am thinking about new Library Management Systems – one is really impressing me, and not just because of the free chocolate! I’m looking forward to being able to make a decision and get things started!
