"Fear the turtle." I am a librarian. I help college students find stuff. @oajoe Opinions my own. I got my sense of humor from my Dad. Blame him.
RT @micahvandegrift: #scholcomm folks! Follow #ARLforum14 for topics of our discussions!
RT @micahvandegrift: Email I'm about to send to @ALALibrary #SCHOLCOMM list: "Open Access Week is worthless if librarians aren’t doing open access." #OAWeek
RT @gehtsie: +1 @micahvandegrift My new idea - we need to start an LIS OA mega journal. PLoLIS.
Is it odd that I had a mini squee when a 4 time ambassador and former Asst Secretary of State for East Asian/Pacific Affairs followed the libraries twitter acct? (Granted, he works for the Univ now.)
I played Wii Golf with the Prime Minister of Malaysia once and got the same feeling. - Steve C Team Marina
I do not think that Lark Burger is a $$$$ restaurant.
I dunno; just rounding up the larks for the burgers would seem difficult/expensive. - Walt Crawford
The Lark bird barter system is overrated. - Joe
Note: You shouldn't have to tell people how to turn a page in magazine reading software--"Note: The platform has virtual page turning and you can find the page-flip view button located just above the image window."
RT @harding_at_mlb: #Rockies will name Jeff Bridich GM today, replacing Dan O'Dowd, who has stepped down. Bill Geivett, senior VP, also resigns
New scholarly field--"Information interacy"
not information itinerant-cy? - Christina Pikas
I swear I read that as "information intimacy". - Catherine Pellegrino

An interesting summary. (I'm fascinated by one "fact" that I'd probably seen before, based on what the slides do show: 43% of e-reader owners don't read ebooks on them. That's a LOT of underweight doorstops or people who own ereaders entirely to read newspapers and the like...) - Walt Crawford

.@EmanuelDerman This is a logical fallacy. Just because you don't know of any other scientists on twitter doesn't mean they don't exist.
.@EmanuelDerman surprised that I don't see @mbeisen or @phylogenomics or @BadAstronomer responding to this conjecture--doesn't hold H2O.
RT @kevinschawinski: @oxyastro @astrokatie @badphysics I spoke w. the @NSF director yesterday and this attitude is on the way out… because funding.
RT @astrokatie: .@EmanuelDerman How terrible is it, that actual scientists doing actual science might deign to TALK to the PUBLIC using SOCIAL MEDIA?!
RT @derekhennen: .@EmanuelDerman Conjecture: If you're a scientist who's not on Twitter, you're missing out on essential connections and conversations.

There is too such a thing as a free lunch. As long as someone else pays for it.
Yep. Even if that someone is "you at a distance." My lunch yesterday was free, because I'd purchased six sandwiches--all better and cheaper than I could have gotten elsewhere--at the same supermarket previously. A legitimately free lunch: I would have bought the other sandwiches anyway. - Walt Crawford

Happened again. See sign that says Craft Fair. Read it as Craft Beer Fair.
I think I need to do a version of this libguide, too. http://guides.library.colostat...
.@NASA @Space_Station Nice advertisement for RPI Hockey right there.
I have to review this for Choice Mag. It has lots of pretty pictures, too. http://t.co/zCLMPZJ1AO

If you are writing a resume for a library position, I don't think you need to include Front Page as a software tool that you are proficient in.
A midlevel boss here did not know about the JM thing and TeamHarpy. I was surprised that she was out of the loop on this one.
I just got a personal invite to (apply to attend) a meeting at the White House.
