the last post May 8, 2009

“Did the band play ‘the last post’ and chorus?, did the pipes play ‘the flowers of the forest’?” The Fureys

This is almost certainly the last time I will post at https://bangorra.wordpress.com

A poignant moment indeed not just for me, but for all the regular readers – thank you both.

I am leaving Bangor University to take up a new post at the University of Glamorgan on May 26th. It would be innaccurate to continue with this as my blog address at Glamorgan, therefore I’m hoping to start a brand new blog, I’ll link to it from here if and when it comes in to being.

The more senior members of staff might remember that I first worked at Bangor University library in the summer of 1989 – as a greasy-haired youth with motivational issues. I returned over some of the following summers, learning as I went, and paying off student debts in the process.

In this, my most recent and significant period of employment, I have made some valued friends, and they have made this place a pleasure to work in, even during what have been challenging times for everyone. One of the highlights for me was producing the Library video, a promotional and educative tool which utilised a number of groundbreaking film techniques.

I leave with all of the excitement a new job brings, but also with considerable regret. I hope that a number of you will keep in touch by email (wrightoid7@btinternet.com), Facebook, or indeed Myspace (www.myspace.com/wrightoid).

The rest, as they say, is silence.
