Jacob Berg, "New Year, New Library: Why We Hired Who We Hired," BeerBrarian -
Pull quote: “I cannot stress enough how important it is to bring in someone from outside the library and library services when interviewing, at least for an academic library. It keeps the conversation focused on what a candidate can do for not only a library, but also the larger academic community, and it keeps the library jargon to a minimum. It also keeps me in check, lest I say something less than stellar about MPOW’s administration, not that that would ever happen.” - Stephen Francoeur
we used to do that and we don't anymore. will ask why. - jambina
it was SUPER-helpful having a person from the institute the job would be serving, last search I was on. De-library-jargonification was definitely a plus. - RepoRat
Sure, if it's one thing academic librarians love is outside advice! - Blake
You can't tell me what to do, Blake. *scowl* - ellbeecee

RT @brianwisti: People are really riled up about SCOTUS. They haven't gotten this angry since Facebook changed their layout.
Fwd: For one of the myriad library conferences out there, we should get Matthew Inman of the Oatmeal to speak on copyright. He would be awesome. And just think of the handouts! (via
Although a hint to cut back on stuff that could be perceived as anti-woman would be nice. (I was kind of not digging what he came up with in the crusade against FunnyJunk -- though I totally dig the crusade.) Cats are fair game! So are Kodiak bears! - RepoRat
I would be annoyed with the choice of Matthew Inman as a speaker at a library conference, for sure. - kaijsa

RT @Erik_Bergstrom: If you can make it in New York you can make it anywhere. Except for in the woods. You’ll probably die in the woods.
What was that one adventure race show thing that was on TV in the 90s where they had a team from NYC who were all excited and had trained in central park and said something about living in NYC makes them all strong and mighty and they will win for sure? They didn't even finish the first day of the race. - Blake
note to self: write something comparing libraries to the movie Footloose...

So proud of Mr. 9yo, who went with his mother today for his first demo (at headquarters of Pearson to protest the way that NY state is using our kids to field test questions for standardized tests published by Pearson).

The data/analysis from my graduate work in biology will *not* be published in an Elsevier journal (as I had feared might happen): my beloved, former PI "signed the petition ages ago" she says <3
