Whenever I see this, I think of our Blake, and whenever I see Blake here, I think of this. "You want to go to war, B'Lake?" - Steele Lawman from Bookmarklet
In high school, one of my friends was "Laura" (with the Spanish pronunciation), and one of our teachers insisted on calling her "Laura" (with the English pronunciation), because the teacher said that her "mouth couldn't move like that" o_O - Meg VMeg
Her "mouth" couldn't move like that. Uh huh. - Deborah Fitchett

First? (Or first to mention it?) Upgraded Wordpress (and plugins). If you're on Lishost or otherwise have your own install, go thou and do likewise.

Wow, HT 108 looks almost like Smith Corona font - Aaron the Librarian
HT 123 B3 is nice - royce
In the old handwritten catalog cards, didn't library hand require that the letters slant to the left or is that just my imagination? - Stephen Francoeur
Seems to be case in some of these old cards: http://www.library.upenn.edu/exhibit... - Stephen Francoeur

Laugh and the world laughs with you. - Steele Lawman
I think we need to hear an Iris laugh. I'm sure there are fancy recording devices in the library. - MoTO: #TeamMarina

In honor of the bad new covers for Anne of Green Gables and The Bell Jar, I made this bad cover for Infinite Jest. But I'm not sure it's bad *enough*.

Put the Watchmen smear of blood on it. BAM. - RepoRat
Needs more pretty lady. - lris
This book was written by a man; it doesn't need a pretty lady on the cover - DJF from Android

It might also be too closely related to the actual subject matter of the book. - Steele Lawman
Maybe a chest-and abs shot of a shirtless guy standing in front of the net on a tennis court. - Kirsten
I think Kirsten is on the right track. - laura x

"I have come to understand that the complaints about the recalcitrant old school librarians that don't 'get it' have, in fact, increased because there are more folks who do 'get it' to complain." -- Lankes

p xi, "Preface", Atlas of new librarianship. Cambridge, MA: MIT Pr, ACRL, 2011. - DJF from Android
Also, Damn but MIT Press designs and prints gorgeous fetish objects... books. - DJF from Android
MIT is my favorite university press by a large margin. - Steele Lawman
And they don't gouge on pricing. The atlas cost a mere $45 from amazon, and its size and production values would have permitted a price of well over $100. - DJF from Android
Um, no - the pricing reflects a subvention. Another source of funds underwrote some of the costs of production. This was an MIT and ACRL publication ... - Lisa Hinchliffe
Lisa, that may be the case, but then MIT must underwrite the costs of production for most of its books. I used to be the CSEE librarian. I've purchased a lot of MIT Press books over the years. - DJF from Android
recalcitrant old-school librarians - Aaron the Librarian
It may be. They probably have a standing as a publisher that many others do not - e.g. higher sales as a result. - Lisa Hinchliffe

I'm having an excellent week. My article finally went up: http://dx.doi.org/10...
Fabulous! I've become very interested in this area of research and look forward to reading your article. Congrats to you on being published :) - Jen
Thank you! - LibrarianOnTheLoose
Forwarding off to our Social Work Librarian right now! (And stashing a copy in my Read Soon folder. As opposed to Read Later.) - Rebecca Hedreen
Congrats! Will you post a green oa version somewhere? - Joe from iPod
I think I have the right to put up my original draft? Like the document I sent to the publisher before it was turned into a proof? Unfortunately my website is still under construction so I don't really have a place to put it. - LibrarianOnTheLoose
You could post it on E-LIS or something similar. From the Elsevier website: What rights do I retain as a journal author*?... -the right to post a pre-print version of the journal article on Internet websites including electronic pre-print servers, and to retain indefinitely such version on such servers or sites for scholarly purposes* (with some exceptions such as The Lancet and Cell... more... - Rebecca Hedreen
Elsevier needs to update their journal author pages--many dead links. - Rebecca Hedreen
You should also be able to post the peer-reviewed version too, since they are green OA compliant. [But, it may be easier to find the pre-print version to post, if there are not that many changes.] - Joe
My impression is that the postprint is okay on an institutional repository but not a subject repository like E-LIS? - Deborah Fitchett
pre-print on e-lis and post-print on an institutional repository or personal website is how I interpret "the right to post a pre-print version of the journal article on Internet websites including electronic pre-print servers, and to retain indefinitely such version on such servers or sites for scholarly purposes" - Aaron the Librarian
<thread jack> does anyone know of an author told by Elsevier or similar $$ pub to take down a PDF they posted w/o permission? - barbara fister from iPhone
nope. they'd rather go after third parties -- I've heard stories of pings to campus IT, frex. - RepoRat
I misspoke when I said "original draft," I meant the microsoft word file that I sent in after peer review as opposed to the formatted proof that JAL submitted to me for final corrections. I looked on E-LIS and there are several JAL publications uploaded in that way. It looks like you have to link to the published version. It also looks like some people formatted their pre-prints to have... more... - LibrarianOnTheLoose

Butts in seats in a library almost as meaningless as facebook likes. Not an accurate measure of engagement.
Yabbut... *No* quantifiable measure of library use is an accurate measure of engagement and real value. I suppose you could argue for abandoning all metrics on that basis, but "Support us because we're good guys" is sometimes a losing argument. ("Sometimes" may be the wrong word.) And, indeed, FB likes is not entirely meaningless either. - Walt Crawford
[OK, I'm sensitive on this, since Give Us a Dollar... is, and must be, entirely about quantifiables, which are absolutely not the most important library stories.] - Walt Crawford
I was going to like this, but I guess it's meaningless NO LIKE FOR YOU - Blake
ಠ_ಠ - Sarah G.
ok fine sheesh, I liked it, you didn't need to get all ಠ_ಠ on me - Blake
Metrics can die in a fire, - Steele Lawman
Thanks for the vote of no confidence, Steele. I really appreciate it. - Walt Crawford
OK I overstated it. If there was a fire, I wouldn't grab the metrics first. - Steele Lawman
How many times was this retweeted versus liked or commented on here? - Joe
Only once, versus this one http://ff.im/16pLAp which got 10+ retweets and only mild interest here. - Sarah G.
