i'm an idiot. had my nose out of joint about the way they changed who reviewed for ASIST a few years ago. This year my SIG put out a call for reviewers - i only got two and one was a conflict. when i asked asist they said if i'm willing they'll give me other reviews.... i think i now have 7. oh well, it will be interesting!
i think i asked this question before: I know there isn't a pre-made embeddable EngineeringVillage search form to use... it looks like the url doesn't have search term information in it... is there a way to create a form that initiates a search on engineeringvillage? the api for scopus is like you're going to display the info on your site
common behavior? Summon results list - clicking on the title takes you to the full text not a page with more detailed citation information... is this typical for discovery services? This is how our new article search is and I find it weird.
kind of put out about RefWorks Flow... clearly they've identified a bunch of features lacking in RefWorks, but instead of adding/fixing, they want us to buy something different... hrumph. I only made it half way through this morning's webinar.
Heartwarming: principal of local elementary school sent an e-mail to our ischool listserv to recruit a librarian. mentioned enthusiastic students, supportive community, and importance of library ... very nice. Of course from the very high performing school system, not from my county with the poorly performing school system
recent ref q: you used to get a lot of journals. is it true that you no longer do? a: um, no, we have tens of thousands of journals??? q: what about.. this one? a: (to self) crap, MNRAS just transferred and everyone is having issues with it (to requestor) issues right now, here's link to ArXiv version of article, will get back to you with status
help me understand, please: AGU JGR journals - in about 5 sections - all sections had the same ISSN until January, now each has its own. 1) new catalog entry required? 2) what happens with sfx - if it's a 2012 article it will use previous issn and a 2013 it will use new or it won't use the issn or.... ? 3) also it appears that WoS dropped coverage
Interesting news. My county publib - where I worked full time 10 years ago and some Sundays until budget cuts - is doing away with the branch manager positions for all 22 +\- branches and will have a few "area" managers. Seems that they're all retiring. Hm. Could be a wise move but potentially tricky day to day
I've never heard of a company pushing out releases right in the middle of the east coast working day... that's weird #refworks ... I guess that explains weirdness earlier.... of course IEEE used to have outages mid-day on working days but they've fixed that.
