Ok, so it sounds like we're looking to move to thelsw.org - trying out Discourse and Commons in a Box. we should make it worth the admin's time and effort of trying them out. I nominate Blake as the main back-end orchestrator for these two instances (his subdomain recommendation sounds good, too). --- Forked from http://friendfeed.com/lsw...

I will be moving on from my current position after 7.5 years to the Singapore Management University (SMU) as Library Analytics Manager in late Feb. Many exciting plans in store at my new University but currently trying not to think about it too much and enjoy my long vacation.
Learned something new-to-me today: Newsbank apparently has a freely available index of thier newspapers http://www.newslibrary.com
The results provide a direct link for users to buy the article for $2.95 ... but hey, it's a free indexing service
does anyone have guidelines at their library for what should and should not be a LibGuide? We have a library website that is outside of our LibGuides instance, and I'd like to come up with guidelines for what should be a page on that site and what should be a LibGuide. Thanks!
Meeting with a prof about his first library instruction session led to discussion of what the need actually is, led to him brainstorming about including me as a lab component for the research methods class they are designing for the major. W00t w00t baby!
If anyone happens to know of any recent Summon vs Primo comparisons that'd be fantastic. Also my lit search is making me ponder the pros/cons of convincing Google to sell libraries API access to Scholar so we could roll our own discover layer.
