Smores with Stephanie - learn how the Park Library can help you save time. Our event is Monday - #ParkLibSavesTime. Thanks to Michelle P. for the idea & graphics! We're targeting students in 2 classes who most need to meet with me. *squee*
Today's minor absurdity in my library: We have four printers named A, B, C, and D. This morning the dead A was replaced by ... E. So now we have four printers named E, B, C, D. Unalphabetized printers in our library. #twitch
I'm not a parent, but I sometimes wonder whether things get too protective (in many areas). Odd example, in a recent Magazine of F&SF: a short story where the about-the-author paragraph ends "Adults might want to vet this one before sharing it with younger readers." Not for violence--I never see that notice above stories with violence, torture, etc
Two-parter on my massive OA research: 1. To end the coyness, it will appear as an issue of Library Technology Reports (from ALA TechSource) sometime this summer, which means I'll do 15,000-18,000 words of reasonably tight, coherent presentation on the results and what they mean.
Anyone know about "Journal of Small Satellites"? afaict not in DOAJ. Publisher site (Deepak Publishing) looks a bit, um, incomplete? BUT there's a good article by a reputable researcher there. Oh, and the site is down right now.
In case anyone is interested, the YorkU Magazine has quite a nice feature on academic blogging, in which I'm one of the people interviewed. Beware, there is a rather large and terrifying picture of me involved. http://digital.yorku.ca/i...
Cod signal to those of you in private universities: if you are willing, please DM me the name of the person responsible for your records management. Also, if you have a useful RM website I could look at/crib from, that would be helpful. Thank you!
I'm certain someone has done this, but my research-fu is failing me. We have a list of titles and ISBNs from ILLiad, and we want to find a batch tool to give us subject headings. Something along the lines of http://classify.oclc.org/classif... but with a batch export option. Our second option is student workers...Any thoughts?
aw man. next house over was foreclosed and is standing empty. it's supposed to be "winterized" but water is pouring out of the walls - literally. I'm guessing sprinkler piping burst over the upstairs. I called the company but they've got to be losing hundreds of gallons of water. and all the new carpeting the company put into it.
