# Joe

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 @bfister: @bobbinewman Yet librarians are wasting an extraordinary amount of money on these delibreately useless locked-up books.Stop doing that!
RT @geekandahalf: Thanks so much for everyone’s very kind words. Looking forward to meeting and working with my cohort of ALA Emerging Leaders.
RT @tweetsoutloud: @wilw and you were in that show that made me proud to be multicultural and want to work in space and making that future happen, UGH.

#TheBigReveal I am not a fan of sprinkles on cupcakes. Crunchy things are not supposed to be on cake.

Your library is eligible to add nearly 60 years of archival content from JOE!

I am failing. I will fail to let Judy know that I will not attend the 5th Annual World Congress of Molecular & Cell Biology (CMCB-2015) held April 25-28, 2015 in Nanjing, China, concerning a Speech in the Panel B1: Cytoskeleton and Organelle.
"Since we have learnt that your recent research is very encouraging." Well, yes, it is, but not about Cytoskeleton and Organelle. - Joe
Evidence Based Collection Models: Not Your Traditional DDA, Tuesday, December 2, 2014, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM ET / 7:00 AM - 8:00 AM PT. You might recognize one of the panelists. http://lj.libraryjournal.com/2014...
Thank you kindly for the shout out Joe! - Galadriel C.
This published abstract of a JASIST article (not early view) has at least 3 errors in it. Who knows how much is wrong in the article. I used to look up to JASIST, but not much lately. http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi... #addedvaluemyass
But it's one of very few very expensive toll-access journals left among the top LIS journals. That's gotta count for something, right? Holding the fort against those nasty ALA divisions and independent groups with their freebies... - Walt Crawford
My sense is the authors are primarily LIS school faculty so they probably don't think of themselves in competition. ASIST certainly doesn't IME. - Sarah
Sarah's right. These are people who wouldn't be caught dead publishing in a practitioner-oriented journal. - RepoRat
Interesting (not surprising), although it seems to me LIS faculty aren't exactly missing from the less theoretical journals... - Walt Crawford
Yeah, no, they're not -- not all LIS faculty are total snobs. I think a network analysis would show that JASIST authors are snobbier than most, though. - RepoRat
THAT WOULD MAKE A GREAT JASIST ARTICLE. - Joe
Getting this past the IRB might be kinda tough though. - Joe
Not as a comparative network analysis -- it's publicly-available information, and the results don't HAVE to be phrased in a way that's invidious. Just "these authors cluster in these journals; those authors cluster in those other journals, HMM WE WONDER WHY." - RepoRat
Oh, I was thinking of doing surveys to determine snobbiness levels. On a scale of 1-10, how snobby is Author X. - Joe
I can't believe I just wrote "And I was all OMG LOL AMAZEBALLS" to my dad.
When I noticed that the WI running back had 408 yards through three quarters. - Joe

Thanks Google Scholar Alert. While this webpage does have the words "library" and "collaboration" on it, it really isn't about library collaboration. "Search for pair and single production of new heavy quarks that decay to a $Z$ boson and a third-generation quark in $pp$ collisions at $\sqrt{s}=8$ TeV with the ATLAS detector."
Tellin' more library peeps about the J. Be All.
It was hoppy, but it was still ok!
