Editor’s Note: Each week, we reflect on the top articles, blog posts, tweets, news, thoughts, and other tidbits we’ve found interesting or useful. Enjoy!

Bravo to Jasmine for her post Managing Expectations: A Farewell. I am on the job hunt and it’s definitely tough out there. As much as I enjoy reading success stories, I think it’s equally as beneficial to see that others are struggling to find employment in this job market. Former HLS writer Brianna wrote a post on her blog about how we need to share our rejections. For every success we have in life, there are countless rejections and failures. I personally had a very tough rejection this week and, after getting the call informing me that another candidate was selected, I had to pick myself back up and return to work for the afternoon. As luck would have it, when I returned to my desk, my inbox had a message from a prospective employer inviting me to an on-campus interview later this month. Know that when one door closes, another one opens. Luckily, more often than not, we end up in a better place, even if it’s one we didn’t see coming. If you are also searching for a job, I wish you the best of luck and encouragement. You are not alone!

I couldn’t help but notice io9 got rather library/book centric earlier this week, with a post on some beautiful modern library spaces (I like the Vennesla Library and Culture House in Norway best), news that a copy of the original Star Wars script was found in a Canadian library, admittedly right in io9’s wheelhouse, and a cool discussion post about books that would benefit from being about 100 pages shorter. The Luminaries, I’m looking at you.

I also spent A LOT of time this past weekend getting my ALA San Francisco conference app totally customized and up to speed with all of the inevitably overlapping things I want to go to. CANNOT WAIT.
