Ignacas Kislauskas, Klaipēdas Universitātes bibliotēka
“Iespēja strādāt bez laika un vietas ierobežojumiem”
Ignacas Kislauskas casual workday doesn’t concentrate only in couple of things at library. Mostly he works in the Rare Books, Collections and Manuscripts Department with many old various documents of famous persons of Lithuania like composers, singers and etc. (who emigrated from Lithuania to USA after Second World War): letters, books, newspapers and so on. Here he has to manage all this material – to describe and to digitize it and so on. Other part of the day usually is dedicated for Klaipėda University teachers’ publications by entering data to the common system of all Lithuania academic staff publications database. These two parts of the day look enough different but together something common because everything that Ignacas does he likes and here is the reason – he wanted to study the archivist subject in university some time ago, but he graduated the subject of public administration. As the consequence now, he enjoys working the job about he dreamt. In 2013, he had an opportunity to go to the USA, to go to the country where many of these famous persons, whose archives now are in Klaipėda University Library, lived there. To look closer at places where and how they lived, to meet with other Lithuanian people who still live there, and the most relevant thing – to visit one of the biggest archive of Lithuanian Culture in the USA (ALKA) near Boston (Massachusetts). Ignacas had worked in this archive for one month.
Despite all things Ignacas does casually in work, he wants something more to do. He is a member of the Lithuanian Librarians’ Association (LLA). He is a volunteer in Klaipėda Association of Youth Organizations “Apskritasis stalas” (Round table). Through these both associations he joins to people whose day doesn’t end only with casual workday.
As an illustration of the all activities Ignacas does, he likes taking long distances by his bike: starting with a casual way to job and back, and ending with spare time activity in summer time with his bike by taking routes along Lithuania coast (here are very good paths for bikes along all the coast of Lithuania). Sometimes he likes just to take his photo camera and travel through various places to memorize that he sees. Something the same as in his job?..
You can ask, how about reading books? Ignacas works in the library, so he should be a reading man. To sum up all these activities, sometimes there is not much time left for calm reading, but he appreciates very much these rare moments spent with book especially when coming back to his homeland by the train…
