I'm having a hard time putting M to sleep in another room while I go to bed. Anyone else worry about their baby being "far away" overnight? I feel that I may be having an irrational panic about this. She has to go in the crib at some point.

Anyone have a good academic library hours page you like? I'm trying to come up with example as we redesign ours. Complications: multiple branches with different hours, different hours for different audiences, different hours school year vs summer and want to show more than just today's hours
Question for folks at academic libraries that are more heavily invested in e-reference platforms than we are (which would be most of them): so, you've got content in various vendor silos -- Oxford, Gale, Credo, etc. -- how do you search across all of them? More importantly, how does the user search across all of them?
Where should I look for descriptions of good assignments and learning activities for library/grad school? It seems like the topic is too specific for books and outside ERIC's scope. Library literature? Are there any good listservs for this?
My university's final exam schedule announcement email this morning contained something I'm assuming is an untranslated ascii code--unfortunately, given the subject matter, that code is "¨" at the beginning of each line. Does anyone happen to have a more complete listing of ascii and/or know what this was supposed to be?
I have sent my official request to attend ALA this year to staff development. All I asked for is to be allowed to go on work time. I am willing to pay for myself. Hopefully, I will get there and finally get to meet some people from here in person.
An exciting and interesting feature of my touch screen tablet is that, when editing an existing post or comment on FF, if another part of my clumsy hovering hand happens to touch the onscreen keyboard as I hunt and peck to enter the intended text, there are several potential ways to advance to another page or thread, and I lose everything.
I was on my feet all day. Naturally, I had let the battery get too low and my fitbit stopped recording sometime after 2pm. In other news, this fitbit's battery life is dwindling and I'm getting ready to order a new one. I can't decide which one to get. There are so many choices now.
thinking about a research project which would involve students keeping a research log, which I would code / analyze. Anyone done this? know of any studies? Only found one in LISTA, eg. (Rebekah Willson: Independent searching during one-shot information literacy instruction sessions: Is it an effective use of time?, 2012)
I anticipate what the people who hate government regulations and the people who distrust the medical establishment will say about the FDA telling 23andme to stop what they're doing, but I do have to ask: does 23andme actually detect/measure what they claim to detect/measure? How do we know?
