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.
Cancer, lay off. One of my dad's closest cousins just died. A good friend of my moms, she lived our house for a while. She was 65, recently retired, and had just finished years of taking care of her own mom. Too soon, too soon.
Musings too random for a blog post, on starting to read the Dean Kamen interview in the 4/29 Fortune. 1. Kamen's portable dialysis machine has sold "more than 500 million worldwide." How is that possible? One portable dialysis machine for every 14 people, worldwide? (This is my "I'm ignorant, but..." remark.)
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.
I'm SPECIAL. Would it be pointless to not renew my membership to a professional LIBRARY organization because they sold my information to spammers? I'd kinda like to rejoin but the amount of spam and junk mail I get because this ASSOCIATION sold me out makes me angry. Would it make any difference if I told them I'm out because of this?
HBR and EBSCO shenanigans... "As of August 2013, some changes will be made to Harvard Business Review (HBR) article access for Business Source customers. This change will not affect institutions that have already purchased the expanded rights from Harvard Business Publishing."
We'll be looking as discovery layers here over the next little while. Experiences people have had at their own institutions or articles/resources/reviews of the various vendor products would be appreciated.
Random and won't necessarily lead to anything question: IF (and it's a big if) I was taking a self-directed tech learning course, and I had 2 out of 3 components figured, and wanted to pick, as my third, ONE programming or scripting language to attempt to become very basically competent at, which one would you recommend and why?*
