RT @drgrist: They got asked about God, civility, and their souls, but not immigration, education, energy, or climate change. Travesty.
#medlibs @evelevemelton And we all know lots of medlibs who not only can't write a SQL query, they can't even search MEDLINE properly.
#medlibs gotta' go.Thanks for discussing. I think libraryfolk arent as scared as they should b. Take care.
RT @mehlibrarian: @davidlrothman Data is the new book. That is where we need to go. How is that? #medlibs
#medlibs OK.Stp w/feelgood talk about vision.Solve problems,share practical solutions.Profession is likely dying.Vague BS wont help
#debates Riiiiight. Becauase you and Romney ain't all about fear, right Congressman Ryan (my friend)?
#medlibs Someone define 'visionary' ? ...or NAME a few visionaries in the field?
RT @wilw: If Biden says "This guy is full of shit", I will donate eleventy billion dollars to the Obama campaign.
RT @billmaher: Hello 9 1 1? There s an old man beating a child on my tv
RT @dweinberger: "Stop talking about how much you care about people. Show me something. Show me a policy." - Getting chills. #vpdebate
#debate When Biden refers to Ryan as "my friend," he means 'this F*&%ing A$$hole.'
Nice to see Biden stepping up. Really. He needs a little more behind his bite, but thus far I'm impressed. Time to get the fangs out. - teleken from BuddyFeed
RT @SandraFluke: The President will defend Planned Parenthood. Romney will defund it. Make the right choice for women's health—vote. http://vote.barackobama.com/en...
RT @markos: Huh, so this is what a real moderator looks like.
#debates Sorry- should have included image. DOOOOOOOSH. http://twitter.com/davidlr...

It drives me complete bonkers that Zotero feeds can't be parsed by Yahoo Pipes. Has anyone else figured out how to make that work?
@medlibs #medlibs Exasperated. Scopus RSS feed cannot be seen by Google Reader or by Yahoo Pipes. Grrr. Any suggestions?
Is it essential that the proxy be part of it? - Nikki D.
The proxy part stuffs up RSS feeds from most databases (with the exception of Compendex, IIRC). Manually deleting it from the feed url generally allows the feed to work. - Deborah Fitchett
There is a way to set the ezproxy to not choke on rss feeds, but yeah i remove the proxy usually. Is the sciencedirect rss problem fixed btw? - aaron
Did you try Feedburner? I think I have some of them in there. - Guus van den Brekel
Yeah. Yanked the proxy stuff out of the URL...surprised our library hasn't addressed the issue. I guess few users want RSS alerts from Scopus. - David Rothman (☤) from Android
I'm looking for advice from a RefWorks ninja familiar with NLM citation style requirements. Anyone?
*bump* - LB: Ratchet Bear
i know RefWorks but not nlm, sorry - Christina Pikas
I also know RefWorks but not NLM. So am not really helpful, too. - Regular Amanda
(But post your question, and I'll give it a whack! Just not a very good whack.) - Regular Amanda
Thanks, guys! Ended up going to our own library to discuss with reference librarian...who agrees that RefWorks simply can't properly record conference presentations and produce correct NLM citations. Disappointing, because that would have been very convenient. Now learning all about Zotero thanks to the excellent book by Jason Puckett. http://jasonpuckett.net/zotero... I am a fussy, picky, hyper-critical jerk- and I can find nothing about this book I don't like. It is outstanding. - David Rothman (☤)
there have been talks recently on the refworks admin listserv about conference presentations and other reference types needed but not supported. probably too late for you, but there have at least been requests for rw to fix that. - Christina Pikas
I've given up on RefWorks fixing anything. *grumpity grump* - maʀtha
I just had to break it to another librarian that RefGrabIt is basically a waste of disk space. - DJF
Oh, absolutely! I've been telling people not to use RefGrab-It for years. - maʀtha

Wow. This is excellent. http://walt.lishost.org/2012...
Very well done. - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
Thanks! (Esp. since I waffled over adding my over-the-hill voice to the discussion. I'm learning *not* to trust my inner censor on matters like that.) - Walt Crawford
