Q for the hive brain: I have a recollection of a journal that was OA, was purchased and taken closed. The content remained available via PMC but was not linked from the publisher site which now appeared as a subscription journal...anyone point me in that direction?
Thanks to the auto-capitilization in Outlook, the shortened URL I sent out to all library staff/faculty that should have led to a sign-up sheet? Instead takes them to this Dr.Who/The Big Lebowski video mashup. LOL I'm sure glad it wasn't anything NSFW!!! http://io9.com/5986329...
[I will preface by saying I am not planning another massive stand against the oligarchy, this is a thought problem] If a library accustomed to having ScienceDirect's Freedom Col. suddenly lost that access, what would you suggest it be replaced with? Is there a content solution? An ethical preference? Are they different things? Is it a lost cause?
Dear Baby Nyce: Today I have tried green tea, watermelon, toast, saltines, a few potato chips, soup, cucumbers, more toast and just water. I have struck out all day and now I am too exhausted to argue anymore. Please tell me what you want to eat. Love, Mommy.
Oh, collective wisdom! I have a memory a hypothetical scholarly publishing model where articles would be posted in repositories and "journals" would select content for peer review and publishing.

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
Right, that's it, I'm done with the exercises in this MOOC. There's no way I have time in the next eight weeks (which includes finals week, graduation, and THREE talks I haven't even started working on yet) to remember enough Python and learn enough about geocoding to get the homework done.
How many babies have "we" had on FF? Let's see: The Toddler formerly known as babyx, MellyBaby, The Louis Gray Project(?), & Jandy's New Release spring immediately to mind. I know I likely missed some since my tenure here. And there were likely others before I got here. Feel free to chime in below.
