Abstract: Almost every librarian’s work life is driven by some type of annual cycle. College and university libraries are tied to the academic calendar and public libraries are often tied to the school day and year. Special libraries are also subject to their own ebbs and flows. Knowing when to anticipate busy cycles and understanding how to manage your time to accommodate these cycles can make you more efficient. It can also ease your level of stress when things are at their busiest. This chapter addresses the cyclical nature of a librarian’s work year and offers suggestions on how to make those cycles work for you.
