"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.

It is not every day that I see a 461 year old book. I guess it covers the Jewish law of divorce. http://t.co/WyC1dgeL3g

.@micahvandegrift @waltcrawford @gehtsie Yes, @creativelibprac is a very small, but that's ~15 less articles/year going to T&F (most likely)
I believe (hope?) that the future for LIS journals is more like CLP than like an "LIS megajournal"--C&RL and ITAL don't publish hundreds of articles a year either, but add all 100+ gold OA LIS journals together and it starts being pretty viable. (Part of Part 2 of my essay: The Diseconomies of Scale.) - Walt Crawford
Like that title. - Joe
Thanks; I do plan to use it. This came to me as I was going through the third part of the study (the 3,338 DOAJ journals I'm looking at) and noting the many, many reasonably old journals with no APC but also fairly narrow niches and low publication volume. - Walt Crawford
The problem is, I don't have a primary secondary out pitch.
a what? - RepoRat
Some pitchers have a primary secondary pitch, like a slider or a change up. I don't have one. - Joe
So, all we have to do is change the Tenure and Promotion policies for hundreds of institutions. No problem.
i have an unscheduled half hour at the end of the day. should i just go ahead and make that change, then? - Marie
the good old "who bells cat?" problem. - RepoRat
When someone says "Don't doubt, just believe," that is when I have the strongest urge to doubt and question their belief system.

as it should be, Joe - RepoRat
This was said about a month ago, but it still makes me bristle. - Joe

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
