Speakers - Charleston Conference | Charleston Conference - http://www.katina.info/confere...
Help me not be mad but instead positive and constructive. Certainly we know women who have opinions about issues in book and serial acquisitions to suggest to the conference directors. Please list them here and I will send the email with names for them to consider. - Marie from Bookmarklet
well, my first thought was Jenica, but I don't think that would work :) Amy Buckland? Barbara Fister? - ~Courtney F
Who is Gah? - Joe
Great interview today with Frances Pinter of Knowledge Unlatched: http://exchanges.wiley.com/blog... Liza Daly of Safari Books Online. Melanie Schlosser. Maura Smale. Allison Brown (Library Publishing Toolkit, SUNY Geneseo). Patricia Uttaro, also of Library Publishing Toolkit. - RepoRat
Barbara, Pat, or Pamela from the Lever Initiative: http://leverinitiative.wordpress.com/about... - RepoRat
Kate Pitcher, interim director at SUNY Geneseo, who could speak to the SUNY Open Textbooks, Library Publishing Toolkit, and their decade-long institutional shift from collection building to resource sharing. - Jenica
Sue Polanka of No Shelf Required? (Haven't heard her, though). - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
Kathleen Fitzpatrick of MLA, though I don't know, has she spoken there before? - RepoRat
Maria Bonn. Meredith Kahn because http://www.insidehighered.com/... - RepoRat
Wonderful ideas, thank you. Any other suggestions? I will send the email before I leave for the day. - Marie
Well, I would be mad *and* constructive about this :) I would add Shana Kimball who works for the New York Public Library and Unknowledge Unlatched and was previously at U of Mich: https://www.linkedin.com/in... - copystar
email sent. - Marie
Thanks for this! - copystar
yes, thank you. - RepoRat
Thank you Marie! - Galadriel C.
Wow, two of the committee already wrote back, thanking me (us) for the suggestions. They'd like me to now put together topics/formats for these speakers. Uh, CAN DO. I'm thinking broad strokes here: Alternative publishing mechanisms (panel or single presenter); Publication length considerations (given Maize and SAGE's new 100 Questions series, it seems that shorter monographs are on the rise) (panel). What else would you suggest? - Marie
The elephant in the room is usually reward mechanisms, whether credit or tenure/promotion. Fitzpatrick could certainly speak to that; so could anybody working on OA monographs. - RepoRat
Lettie Conrad at SAGE is fantastic on discoverability and related issues. - Roger Schonfeld
Palgrave has been pushing their Pivot monographs, in the vein of shorter publications. I think Springer might be considering something similar. - Holly's favorite Anna
Morgan and Claypool has had short monographs for some time. Also from Oxford, http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/categor... - Joe
More great ideas. Thanks, LSW! I'm headed back to email to share with them. - Marie
Late brainstorm: Caroline Edwards, https://www.openlibhums.org/about... OLH is pretty dang ambitious. - RepoRat
i second Caroline Edwards! - jambina
Just a quick note of thanks for all your help. They're moving our ideas forward to figure out where to insert them into the schedule. - Marie
Well done, Marie! - Jenica
Marie wins the internet today! - RepoRat
Most excellent! - Galadriel C. from Android
A little bird has told me that the III no longer has a Director of Library Futures. "Too much investment for too little return", I am told.
The future is PLASTICS. - Julian
Right-o, Julian - ellbeecee
I'm bemused by the idea of Library Futures. Where can I buy them? And what is the timeframe to go long on? - Cameron Neylon
Cameron, at the Chicago board of profession, just across the street from the CBOT. - DJF from Android
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ win. - RepoRat
of course now we need to rewrite Trading Places. - Pete's Got To Go
Exactly, Julian - maʀtha from Android
Who wants to lay money on who the next DoLF will be? - maʀtha from Android
I'd last money on the position being eliminated - DJF from Android
that would be my guess too. I can say from experience that getting a position created for you has a way of not working out real well -- at least, where obvious nepotism isn't involved (it's never been for me). - RepoRat
yeah, it didn't last long - maʀtha
Which law suit? - Joe
Innnnnnteresting. - Jason Griffey
~Courtney F
my @LibraryBoxen t-shirt came just in time for #alamw14!

Awesome! I STILL DONT HAVE ONE. hopefully, tomorrow. - Jason Griffey
I was trying to remember what t-shirt I had ordered :) It's a nice shirt - not too thick, and the printing is great! - ~Courtney F
Mary Carmen
Milk drunk.
Precious! - Anne Bouey from iPhone
I miss the days when Olivia would get milk drunk. Now it's PBJ high (now with more energy) - Jonathan Disher
It is so cute when it happens. It is even cuter when she has no pain from reflux and she just passes out. She is such a sweetie when she is feeling good. - Mary Carmen
Awwwww! So cute, I miss those days. Now when he's done nursing he crawls away to play and I have to chase after him :D - marta from FFHound(roid)!
D'awwwwww! So very sweet! - vicster.

Alex Scrivener
The Scrivener Eggnog Recipe: 4 cups Blended Whiskey, 2 cups Brandy, 1 cup dark Jamaican Rum, 1 cup light Puerto Rican Rum. 1 dozen eggs, 1 pound sugar, 1 quart whole milk, 1 quart heavy cream.
Separate eggs. Whisk sugar and yolks until smooth. Pour in liquor slowly, whisking constantly. This will cook the yolks, so if they aren't whisked smooth with the sugar you will have bits of yellow floating in the nog. Add dairy, still whisking. Beat egg whites to soft peaks, then fold into the nog. Let sit for 24 hours. Serve with fresh nutmeg on top. - Alex Scrivener
My family makes about 3 gallons of this at Christmas time. - Alex Scrivener
We must not let Mr. Adrian see this. =) - Anika
My great-uncle brought this back from New Orleans during the 30s. It kicks ass and takes names. - Alex Scrivener
Heh. Now I know what I'm making for Christmas dinner. Thanks for sharing the recipe, Alex! - Jennifer Dittrich
omg that stuff is crazy good - Sascha Wasek
If you want lo cal, get a smaller glass! - Alex Scrivener
lo cal... what is the world coming to?! <mutters under my breath> - Alex Scrivener
With all that alcohol, it's like a dairy version of a Long Island Iced Tea - Spidra Webster
It is a recipe of halves. Of the gallon of liquid, It is half dairy and half liquor. Of the half which is liquor, half is whiskey. Of the half which is not whiskey, half is brandy. Of the half which is not brandy, half is light rum and half is dark. Of the half is dairy, half is milk and half is cream. Then you throw in the dozen eggs and the pound of sugar. - Alex Scrivener
Oh yeah, this is some great stuff! Every year I forget, and every year I am reminded again. - Alex Scrivener from iPhone
Bump for Alex Scoble - Alex Scrivener
*faints* - Derrick
That sounds awesome. - Lindsay
I like coconut, but I am an eggnog purist. - Alex Scrivener
Well, in that case... - Alex Scrivener
The eggnog drinking contest episode of Jackass is still one of my favorite of all time - LANjackal
Good eggnog must be sipped slowly. - Alex Scrivener
Thanks for sharing, Alex. I'm going to hold some "taste test/QA trials" of your recipe around Christmas. If it's successful, you'll probably see about 15 drunken Jenny posts one evening. - Jenny
Fresh batch is ready! - Alex Scrivener
I'll be right over...unfortunately, this means I'll be there in 3 days. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Mmm, I'm at my mother-in-law's house and she makes something very similar. She makes the yolk/sugar/booze/dairy mixture the day before and folds the egg whites in right before serving though, I think. I know there was a bunch of Jameson's in it. Yum, can't wait - we get to drink it later today. - Laura Norvig
Just did my first batch of this and it is nestled all snug for drinking tomorrow :) - Jennifer Dittrich
This is some rock-star type egg nog. Damn. - Bren from iPhone
Good fooking gawd man. I'll sip this then spin! - Lnorigb from FFHound!
Made it again this year, Alex - everyone loved it :D - Jennifer Dittrich
I opted out this year; I think I'm still feeling the effects of last year's batch. o_O - Jenny H. from Android
Bump for December. - Alex Scrivener
I made this for Thanksgiving. Everyone loved it. - Trish R
Oh, I could make eggnog from the half-in-half left over from my Thanksgiving squash casserole recipe. I bought way too much. - Greg GuitarBuster
Greg, as Trish says, this is a GREAT use for that :) - Jennifer Dittrich
this recipe is the only one that actually tempts me to try eggnog. - holly #ravingfangirl
OMG, it has so much booze in it. I think I was drunk after one cup. I'd like to make it again with about half the alcohol. - Jenny H.
Kelli, same thing for me. I'm going to make it for Christmas with half the booze. - Trish R
I make it at full strength (so that I don't have to worry about the eggs,) but then serve it with some extra milk to water it down a bit if people want to. - Jennifer Dittrich
I wondered that, too, about the eggs. but it's just too strong for me so maybe I should dilute it that way. - Trish R
Nice to see this bumped. I think we might have to make this this year. - Laura Norvig
That's a good idea, Jenn. Or I could throw in some 7-UP (a weird family tradition of mine- I haven't yet met anyone else who drinks eggnog and 7-UP). - Jenny H.
Bump for Christmas! - Bren from iPhone
First Thanksgiving together!
Hi friends. Happy turkey day. - Mary Carmen
@Mary Carmen: You too, kiddo! - Jed from FFHound!
Awh! *melts* - Heleninstitches #teamff
May it be the first of many more to come. - Friar Will
one of many!!! - VALZONE#SCREWED
Happy Thanksgiving, you two! - Mary B: #TeamMonique

Great post by Walt Crawford on ACS and libraries. http://walt.lishost.org/2012...

Matt Enis, "Open-Source LibraryBox Project Branches Out," The Digital Shift - Library Journal - http://www.thedigitalshift.com/2012...
Wow, go Griffey - that is awesome! - Laura Norvig from iPod
Pull quote: “Among its many uses, it’s ‘a tool that libraries and educators can use to distribute things to areas where distribution of digital objects is very difficult or impossible in some instances,’ Griffey said. Or, libraries can simply use it as an inexpensive marketing tool at local coffee shops or community events.” - Stephen Francoeur
Neat toy, but it (LibraryBox) really only seems to make sense in places where Internet access is scarce yet wireless devices are ubiquitous... Because if we have Internet access, it makes much more sense to use the Web, right? (remember the Web?) - JffKrlsn
Jeff, I like the idea of a public library getting a LibraryBox placed in a public place that offers free wifi (coffee shops, etc.) and using that as a way to promote community-created content (or public domain works). By making the LibraryBox broadcast its wifi signal (I assume that's how it would be discoverable), it might be a fun way to expose content to those who are scanning the wifi options in a public place. - Stephen Francoeur
There are plenty of places in the world where internet access is scarce. - Zamms
Jeff: you nailed it, at least as a primary use. But even in areas where there is Internet access, it's not always as robust as it could be. LibraryBox is 802.11n, and local. I can see uses in distributing large files locally, even if you have wider 'net access...for instance, at a conference. - Jason Griffey from iPhone
Great point, conferences are too often wifi dead zones (or nearly so). Looking forward to seeing/reading more about it. - JffKrlsn from Android

barbara fister
Following on our previous discussion (http://friendfeed.com/lsw...) here's a poll; anyone want to test-drive it? I am not sure the results would be all that informative, and it's utterly unscientific, and I would do the Bad Thing of sending it through lists, but then I wouldn't make claims it's anything other than "Barbara's being nosy again." Anyway -...
I'm not seeing it? - Meg VMeg
Ack! fixed the link - which is http://tinyurl.com/73zqxss - barbara fister
Do you want us to send out to various discussion lists, so you get tons of responses? Did this get approved by the IRB? - Joe
No, first I want to see if it passes LSW. Seriously, looking for any feedback people want to give before I do anything further. My curiosity is very often idle. - barbara fister
oooh, fun! I totally responded. idle curiosity is a good time usually. - MontglaneChess
I responded too - looks good to me! - Deborah Fitchett
I responded, but with short answers. I could have gone on and on and on and on, but I figured you just wanted to get a sense of what kind of responses you would get from the LSW. - Joe
done! Those were good questions. I'd encourage you to provide a bit more granularity in the "kind of institution" question; there is a world of difference in "4-year institutions" that you may or may not want to tease out. - Catherine Pellegrino
(For that matter I've no idea what "R1" means and was too lazy to look it up but guessed, by comparison with the others, that probably it was closest to what we are.) - Deborah Fitchett
Thanks, all. I will clarify R1 (sorry for parochialism!) Catherine, what sort of granularity would you recommend? I'm used to the old Carnegie Super Simple classifications. - barbara fister from iPhone
Well, initially I was thinking that there's a big difference between us and what Dean Dad refers to as "Compass Point State University" (e.g., Southern Indiana University, etc.) but most of those are actually master's-level schools anyway, so maybe I'm full of it and your granularity is fine. - Catherine Pellegrino
And thanks, Joe, yes to test driving. I set up a survey once and tested the responses with "blah blah blah" and forgot to delete them. Co-conspirator got results and told "you wouldnt believe how hostile the first subject was. Guess they thought it was a stupid survey." Uhhhh.... - barbara fister from iPhone
I think that looks great, and I also like your paragraph introducing the study. I wonder if re-wording the Carnegie classification into more colloquial terms would make the granularity a little clearer? "Research / PhD. university (R1), Master's-level university, Four-year college, Two-year college, other"? I could just be nitpicking at labels here, I consider it my duty as a librarian. - Regular Amanda
I really like the questions but agree the types of institutions is a little hard for me. I'm at an RU/H (research university with high research activity), but not an RU/VH (very high research activity), which is what most people think of as an R1. University of Wyoming is not University of Michigan, basically. :) - kaijsa
All nits eager to be picked - and thanks for all the input. - barbara fister from iPhone
Barbara, I once ran a fanfic archive using hand-written html templates that included "Summary: blah" which I'd then do a find/replace to substitute the real summary for "blah". Until one day I forgot to find/replace the summary. Cue one very upset author, who fortunately forgave me upon profuse apologies, explanations, and the assurance that I'd changed my template and it'd never ever ever happen again. - Deborah Fitchett
I'm super interested in seeing the results :-) - Penny
my first hackathon; or, gender, status, code, and sitting at the table - Andromeda Yelton - http://andromedayelton.com/blog...
"Because here’s another thing I know: I have unusual self-confidence. I am more comfortable than most women being in a male-dominated environment, and attacking technology, and believing in my skills. And right now that is the minimum for being a woman in tech. And it’s a minimum that cuts against things we know about women — that they tend to underrate their skills, to be less confident than men even when more capable. And if that’s the minimum, we are excluding a hell of a lot of people who have more than enough aptitude to do amazing things." - Marianne from Bookmarklet
" The minimum shouldn’t be, well, balls — it should be interest, aptitude (not even skill!), drive to contribute. Not the ability to say — even, if necessary, to yourself — and always to multiple cultures — and even when people are being as pleasant and welcoming as possible — “fuck you”." - Marianne
(this is all over my feed on twitter-imports - let's have it in the LSW room too, because IT ROCKS.) - Marianne
I am totally forwarding this to one of my other favorite unapologetic women in tech: http://www.wandering-scientist.com - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod

I adore that my Head of IT does not mind that I inappropriately start out-of-the-blue IM conversations by pinging him with "Dood!".

I can do that kind of thing with a few people in the libraries. It's fun. :) SLIS is a little more buttoned-down, but not oppressively so. - RepoRat
Sounds a lot like my FPOW. It's one of the things I miss most about that corner of the corporate world. - Heather
That's one of the things I've loved about all the libraries where I've worked: way less formality than in my corporate experiences. - Laura Krier

LSW: Joe
While Steve's Zines have been awesome, I am wondering if we should create a real journal to compete with some of the commercial publications. Maybe something like an LSW One take off of PLoS One. We could put the PDF documents onto a WP or the drupal site. This would not compete with the book......
I have access to an OJS site, but I am not sure that I would recommend it. I guess there is a WP plugin that makes publishing journal papers easier. Let me see if I can find that... - Joe
PressForward? the green triangle bit. http://pressforward.org/ - barbara fister
That sounds right. I also found http://www.darkmatter101.org/site... - Joe
I'd like to suggest DHNow as another possible thing we could do. - RepoRat
To help peer review and such for http://digitalhumanitiesnow.org/ ? - Joe
Why not just the existing PLoS ONE? Could maybe start a Collection if that helped. The fee waiver policy is real: "All we ask is that you list what portion of the publication fee you can pay and that you explain your reasons so that we can work with funding agencies and institutions to encourage the development of appropriate funding policies." http://bit.ly/x5feNV - Heather Piwowar
Joe, or to create a similar gizmo that's specific to LIS. - RepoRat
Heather: I'll offer two reasons. First, PLoS is, rightly or wrongly, assumed to be primarily about the hard sciences. Second, "can pay" poses a $1,500 problem for many librarians--who certainly could pay that much, but why should they have to? It's really an outrageous sum for the level of copy-editing and formatting library-sourced articles are likely to require. (I'll hold my thoughts on whether it's a reasonable sum in general. "Better than $3,000" is only a starting point.) - walt crawford
yup, ok I hear you on the "can pay" issue. nonetheless an option to have in your pocket in case all the work in getting a cheaper-yet-still-valuable option going proves tough. - Heather Piwowar
Also, there are already a number of "platinum" OA journals in the library field, including Tom Wilson's (the UK one) Information Research (he uses "platinum" for gold OA without author-side fees). http://informationr.net/ir/ - walt crawford
Walt, do you know why Information Research hasn't been more of a run-away success? - Heather Piwowar
I think I've read some articles from IR. The interface looks familiar. - Joe
I guess I am thinking something along the lines of First Monday, with either HTML or PDF docs. - Joe
Heather: Because, like most smallish journals in narrow fields, especially those without big corporations behind them, it hasn't spent lots of $ on publicity, and it's basically a one-man operation, so it's not in a position to publish hundreds of papers. (PLoS clearly spends serious money on publicity, given how often the articles show up in newspapers.) As for First Monday...oh, I think I won't go there. - walt crawford
thanks! - Heather Piwowar
I know that the FirstMonday is monthly, and tons of articles. I like their setup and design. I guess I would see this as being quarterly or twice a year, or maybe publish articles as they are done like http://journals.tdl.org/pal... (I think.) - Joe
Ah, OK. The setup & design are good. If I was doing something like this (Gaia forbid!), I'd go with an overlay model--post articles as they're ready, do a ToC mailing (and maybe an optional publish-on-demand print version) once a quarter, twice a year, or more often if the flow of articles warrants. But I'm not volunteering... - walt crawford
I think I've seen IR before, but if something doesn't have an RSS feed then I'm going to forget about it pretty promptly. - Deborah Fitchett

SOPA and Research Works Act Hall of FAME (hopefully to be a continuously-updated list):
MIT Press disavows the AAP's position on the Research Works Act, but doesn't withdraw its membership: http://poynder.blogspot.com/2012... - Catherine Pellegrino
ITHAKA (parent organization of JSTOR) disavows the AAP's position on the Research Works Act, but doesn't withdraw its membership: http://poynder.blogspot.com/2012... - Catherine Pellegrino
CLIR (Council on Library and Information Resources) is embarrassed to admit that it hadn't realized it was a member of the AAP, disavows their position on the Research Works Act, and states its intention to withdraw its membership: http://poynder.blogspot.com/2012... - Catherine Pellegrino
(Links to additional coverage on the three we have thus far are also welcome; I just posted the three quickest links I could find.) - Catherine Pellegrino
Honorary Mention to the University of Michigan Library for a comprehensive statement in response to the White House OSTP's request for comment: http://www.lib.umich.edu/news... (UofM Press is not a member of the AAP, but the UofM Medical School is.) - Catherine Pellegrino
Penn State UP disavows AAP's position on RWA, doesn't leave AAP: http://poynder.blogspot.com/2012... - RepoRat
ALA says the right thing: http://www.districtdispatch.org/2012... - RepoRat
SLA call to action: http://slaconnections.typepad.com/public_... (which was emailed to the membership today). - Marianne
Academic Libraries of Indiana has composed a letter to...somebody...on the subject. That'll turn the tide for sure. </sarcasm> - Catherine Pellegrino
Hey, they said something. Go them for being a good example. *How* many academic librarians look at scholarly-communication issues, EVEN TODAY, and say "not my problem" or (*glares at someone who knows damn well who he is*) "this is awful, but we mustn't actually SAY anything to anyone about it where we might be overheard"? - RepoRat
There's some indication that Mike Rossner has weighed in: http://www.michaeleisen.org/blog... I'd kinda like to see a better source, though. Have asked on Twitter. - RepoRat
Eisen just tweeted that it's real. Good enough for me. - RepoRat
Poynder reports email from U of CA distancing selves from RWA. Sort of. Diplomospeak. - barbara fister
Updated my post last night with this new info. - Andy
Is it telling that when scholarly presses wish to correct the record, it's through email, not web? Is this not wanting to own it, or that they don't really know how to work that web thing? - barbara fister
It's a cultural thing. I've gotten *so* many emails from publishing types that would have been better as blog posts. I think part of it is the expectation that issues will be worked out genteelly behind the scenes, with the corollary that if you try to shame or intimidate people privately, they'll stop criticizing you publicly. Not really the world we live in, now, but... - RepoRat
hmm. Makes me feel as of I'm taking dictation for them. - barbara fister from iPhone
I think this same cultural difference is apparent between librarian management and librarian labour on this issue, and others just as library funding cutbacks. Personally, I think they can work in tandem in their own ways. - copystar
If allowed to. - RepoRat
Never thought I'd be adding them to this list, but: Nature Publishing Group, Digital Science, and Palgrave are opposing SOPA/PIPA: http://www.digital-science.com/nature-... and NPG/Digital Science are opposing RWA: http://www.nature.com/press_r... - Catherine Pellegrino
WHOA. *headasplode* - jambina
Since their websites could be brought down by a plagiarized paper, color me unsurprised. - Andy
