RT @megaden: Facebook can track any page that includes a Facebook like button. Including the library's. Do not put like buttons in the OPAC! #LTC2014

Could some Twitter user please look at Twitter on the web and tell me where your logout button/link/command is? Thanks.
RT @copyrightlibn: Also, to alllll the people who have emailed me the article about Getty images, it's a neat project, but ads & user tracking ISN'T FREE.
Click through to someone's Twitter profile, go to follow them, realize I'm logged into the library account. Go to logout--cannot find the sign out link! I'm trapped!
Even weirder. http://twitter.com/logout doesn't work--click button nothing happens. - Rebecca Hedreen

Of course, lovely collapsing menu CSS used by our systems librarian on new(-ish) webdesign does NOT work in IE9. 7, yes; 8, yes; 10, yes; Firefox, yes; Chrome, yes; Safari, yes; IE9, no. And what is the most commonly used browser on campus?
And we didn't spot it right away, because we actually update our browsers. - Rebecca Hedreen
Combing through my vendor email, I come across this webinar: "Do You Have Improperly Misclassified Interns?" No! All of our interns are properly misclassified.

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'm guessing it's a bullet of some sort, given the positioning. - Rebecca Hedreen
According to a quick search it maps to a diaresis / umlaut - Pete
¨ <it's that. i put it into a web page.. i thought it might be diamond but that's &diams; - Christina Pikas
sounds like somebody was using Microsoft Word plus a font that maps poorly to Unicode. - RepoRat
or someone was really saying "die" "die"! - Christina Pikas
I suspect that it's what RR sez--bullets have a way of mapping to strangeness on export. - Walt Crawford
Thanks, all. (And they just sent the email again, without the mysterious ascii this time. No bullets, but maybe they sensibly gave up on that idea!) - Rebecca Hedreen
This looks like excellent plausible deniability for some of the emails I'd like to send about [Name of Project Redacted]. (Volcanoes should not be necessary this early in the week.) - Deborah Fitchett
Google/Authors Guild case, final summary judgement. Case dismissed. https://www.dropbox.com/s... (and an excellent lesson in fair use, too.)

Discovery of the day: storing oolong tea bags next to the lapsang souchong tea bags produces a lightly smoky oolong. Nice. ☕

So I'm writing up my "teaching philosophy" for my promotion file--we go through the same process as the teaching faculty--and I'd really like to call it something else because, you know, I'm a librarian. THERE IS NO VERB FOR WHAT WE DO! I now have a document titled '"Librarian-ing" Philosophy'.
We call ours our Philosophy of Librarianship - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
"Librarianate" is totally a word. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. - RepoRat
Dear first year student, if you had actually been to my office several times, you really should have seen the calendar with my office hours and reference desk schedule on it, and not had to email me complaining that you can't find me.
Note: the email did not say, "I can't make the hours you had listed, can we set up an appointment?" - Rebecca Hedreen
My favorite are the faculty who come by several times trying to catch me instead of say, emailing or leaving a vmail telling me they need help. - kaijsa
I tell all of my students/faculty/etc "I'm rarely in my office, I'm almost always in front of a computer." - Hedgehog
Me, too. Doesn't stop people, frustratingly. - kaijsa
I sometimes think it's a handmaiden effect. Women are SUPPOSED to be at their desks, because that's what working women do, right? Except when maknig coffee. - barbara fister

An ILS professor who formerly used Delicious in her classes does not like the new service/interface. Does anyone have a recommendation for a link saving/bookmarking service that would generally be easy to teach to ILS students, but robust enough for students to do interesting things with APIs, etc.
Pinboard's great, but it is not free. Tradeoff. - RepoRat
I second Pinboard. I think it's a one-time fee to access. - Zamms
I started using Evernote as my del.icio.us replacement and now use it for everything. It might be overkill for those really just wanting a "bookmarking" service, but I find it's just stellar as an "outboard brain" and it apparently does have an API. - Steele Lawman
Pocket (the artist formerly known as Read it Later)? They have an API. - kaijsa
Does Zotero have an API? I'm assuming Diigo does not (which is where I went for social bookmarking after Delicious) - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
I'll third pinboard - kristin buxton
I use diigo. Simple bookmark button one can install in the browser. Like that I can have more than 1,000 characters in the description. Up to 20 tags per item saved. Was able to import my delicious items into diigo. Has RSS feeds that work. - Joe - Systems Analyst

I am so happy to hear that at GBS Publishers there "is" no page charges. Presumably no editing either.
I particularly love the ones that promise copyediting services in broken English. - RepoRat
Makes sense to me. Getting broken English exactly the right shade of wrong can't be easy. - Walt Crawford
