this one at Millers Flat)
After help from both the Librarians here at Otago and at SCSU I have managed to link my REFWORKS account at SCSU to the databases available through Otago. I sat through about 5 online tutorials and am still a bit befuddled about how to manage my online searches and saving all the citations, but hopefully I can get the Librarian here to spend 30 mins or so with me to help me with a couple of the questions I have. Phew.

Finally, I asked the computer / draftsperson here if they could help solve my Illustrator 'problem', and, well ... I didn't have the problem when they were standing behind me - BUT he gave me some really good pointers, AND he told me he could scan all my ginormous paper maps for me, so I don't have to scan them in pieces. So I gave all nine maps/cross-sections to him, and he said he'd do that tomorrow. Yes!

Note that those are 'clay' bricks - not schist
I also (finally) made myself a calendar plan for what I want to get done and when, which involved sending emails to people in Christchurch and Wellington. All of this takes SO MUCH TIME ! But I have to do it all to move forward.
