Came *this* close to commenting at SKitch, with Joe Esposito blathering about how much he's irked by university librarians with $50 million budgets being contemptuous of university presses. I'm guessing Joe believes there are dozens or hundreds of such university libraries. In fact, as of 2012 data, there are ten (10) in the U.S.
Question for current or previous owner/operators of small human beings: How much poopin' is too much poopin'? The boy likes to deliver one to two four squirt diapers a day of breast milk which you know leaves a small brown lake of probably 4 ounces each time. The books all say they may go through a period of no pooping. But nothing on regularity.
Admitting defeat of de feet. Coming soon: massive sale-slash-giveaway of beautiful shoes that the rheumatoid & spondylitis make it impossible to wear. I'm keeping the Sanitas, Danskos, and sneakers. All the pretty stuff and the winter stuff will be up for grabs. If you or a friend is a 9.5M, stay tuned....
Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition, Technology, and Logistics put out a memo July 9 about the public access policy, but it essentially says: you will comply by sending stuff to DTIC, enforcement details coming soon
I don't have supervisory experience and I'm afraid this is going to stall out my career progress. No chance of getting any in current position. Closest thing I have is teaching high school students nearly ten years ago. Ideas on how to overcome this?
Fun times yesterday: At 3 p.m. (+/- 5 minutes), power went out. Called PG&E; it had already been reported; estimated fix 6 p.m. Which changed to 8 p.m. Which changed to (gulp) 1 a.m. Finally restored at 11:56 p.m. Went out again after about three minutes for eight minutes. Restored (and stayed restored) at 12:07 a.m.
Just realised today the way we do ILL here is quite different from most libraries. Yet another insight to why sometimes our faculty staff or researchers who have experienced other systems are confused.
all agu journals are supposed to be OA after a 2 year embargo, yet MPOW can't get to a journal we have always subscribed to. Can anyone else get to this article pdf? http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi...
Sigh. Now the Beallster, in asserting Another Predatory OA Publisher, concludes that if you create an overlay journal to a repository base (in this case overlaying articles deposited in SSRN), the repository (SSRN) *is the publisher.* No point in trying to educate him; he's selectively deaf.
Do any of your people have a fountain that people throw money in? How do you deal with the money? Ours is gross and corroded and the bank won't take it, so we have buckets of useless money sitting around.
Probably not the first one to say this, but it seems as though somebody at Bentham Open would have realized that their favorite journal-naming convention, The Open [Noun-Phrase] Journal, results in some...unpleasant titles.
