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?
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'.

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.
Oh, collective wisdom! I have a memory a hypothetical scholarly publishing model where articles would be posted in repositories and "journals" would select content for peer review and publishing.
