sorry! not used to my tweets actually working here. idea came from here I would love to have a week on topics though - OA, Hacker/Maker culture, Digital Humanities. I want to market it to upper level students, grads ,faculty. Will start with regular 23 things for library staff as a pilot in order to get support for a bigger initiative. Also considering possible partners on campus - weelibrarian

Responding to the ACRL draft Information Literacy Framework - DEADLINE EXTENDED (via
Edited: "The deadline for comments has been extended to 5pm Central on Monday, ***April 21,*** 2014." (feel free to use what you need from ours if you agree) - lris
Half an hour left. - lris
too late, all done? - awd
I say go for it even though it's past 5pm. - lris
They extended the deadline to ... I think the 21st? - Lisa Hinchliffe
I can't find any information on that. Link please? - lris

Anybody have recommendations for students on sources of financial aid/grants/scholarships?
More specifically, student was told to get a book on sources of grants/scholarships, but I am not sure what to recommend. - Rachel Walden
Wow. We used to keep books like that in our reference section, until they invented this thing called "the internet." We've weeded them all, but maybe your reference section has one? Or the public library? Can the student narrow it down any: grants/scholarships for college? grad school? students with particular characteristics? studying particular fields? - Catherine Pellegrino
pub lib has these big floppy books that list grants/scholarships... tons of them. they're with the gre/gmat/act/whatever study books - Christina Pikas,, and are all free databases that are pretty good. - kaijsa
What is this "internet" you speak of? ;) Thanks for the online suggestions, will pass along. - Rachel Walden

The 2yo wants me to play cars with him, but he will not let me touch them. Boys are so mean.
yes, we are. #sorry - MoTO Moca Blend
Barbara Fister IN THE SAME ROOM WITH ME ALL DAY. You are jealous.
Jaclyn aka spamgirl
You guys, a mtg with the deans about OA went better than I could have dreamed. Library looks fwd-thinking. Fingers crossed it continues. #oa
*kermitflail* yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! - RepoRat
I'm not saying everyone was on board, but I expected waaaaay more negativity. Even the main opponent thanked us for showing him new things. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl

I'm honored to have been added to a list of Thinkers on Higher Education. I have lots of thoughts on it, but I mostly tweet about my toddler
barbara fister
YAY we're back, she says, sobbing with relief.
Okay, not really sobbing, but you know? I miss this place. - barbara fister
Lately I've found myself pointing to Repo's comments here on ff with the notation '^^^' to signify that I agree with what she's said. Let's move forward with just assuming that I'm going to agree with what she's said and we'll save ourselves a bit of time. Okay? Okay.
lol you should probably worry about that. agreeing with me ONLY LEADS TO SORROW. - RepoRat
:) RR and I strongly disagree on some things (cordially, I think), so I won't take this approach. - Christina Pikas
wise Christina is wise - RepoRat
Okay, so I'll be sure to note then when I DO NOT agree with RR, just to keep us all honest. - Marie
(for the record, Christina is the bomb-diggity and always has been.) - RepoRat
RR, you know I <3 you, too :) - Christina Pikas

This guy's zotero-fed website is pretty slick:
He's using Simile/Exhibit. Easy-to-make faceted interfaces, or so I've been told, never having actually jumped in and tried to make one... - JffKrlsn
Catherine Pellegrino
because Johns Hopkins University Press so conveniently placed these two articles next to each other for screenshotability:
What? That's totally a word. - Catherine Pellegrino
I was wondering if you guys were going to be in the same issue, and here you are back-to-back! - Steele Lawman
BFFs! - lris
this is how world domination starts... - jambina
well I for one welcome our new information-literacy overladies - RepoRat
^^ - Marie
That is one special issue of portal! - barbara fister
I will be pointing my colleagues to this issue while bragging that I know you both. - kaijsa
Wow, that's a VERY special issue! I know authors on 5 articles in that issue! Apparently, I know very exciting, very smart people! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
My office phone isn't working. Glorious day! #emailme
UPDATE: They're going to have to order me a new one, which may take days. *squee* - Marie

We're in temporary digs while they fix the building. NO ONE HAS PHONES. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
Every time the phone/intercom rings in our classroom, all 3 of us say, "We don't want to talk to you." Then, whomever is closest to it has to answer. Sucks to be them. - Lisa L. Seifert
What is this odd experience I'm having? Oh, I'm happy. Huh.
I've had that happen. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an

"Situating Information Literacy Within the Curriculum: Using a Rubric to Shape a Program" - (via
The article Heather, Danya, and I wrote has been published! - lris
Here's a version of the talk I gave yesterday "Locations of Literacy: Information Literacy" (plenary panel at MnWE 2014) - (via
I love this. Thank you. - Megan loves summer
Fantastic piece! - Lisa Hinchliffe
So, so, so good! I'm sorry the conference was an organizational nightmare (literally for you). Thank you for sharing your talk. - barbara fister
Thank you! And thank you, Barbara, for recommending me to them. It was such an honor. - lris
I'm at MnWE today, a conference in Minnesota for Writing and English. Fun to be in a slightly new world.
First breakout session of the day, none of the panelists showed up. So we're kicking it unconference style. - lris
Sad lesson about public speaking: fun tech rarely works in generic circumstances. - lris
Huh, a professor in this session is arguing with some emotion that this awesome high school debate teacher is doing great work, but that "higher ed" doesn't require critical thinking and analysis any more. - lris
what the what? - Catherine Pellegrino
*blinks* - RepoRat
The rest of us were utterly baffled. He got shaky voiced (nerves? frustration? sadness?) trying to say "no, what's required is recall, not analysis" - lris
I am similarly baffled. There wasn't an implicit "...and that's what wrong with higher ed today" implied in there somewhere? - Catherine Pellegrino
Yeah, he sounded like "this is the sad sad truth: you're trying too hard" - lris
Sounds like despair. Which I can understand. Teaching is hard, and some days it surely does feel kind of useless. - RepoRat
Conference planning 101: If your "your proposal has been accepted" email does not go out? You'll end up with a WHOLE HECK OF A LOT of presenters who didn't know to show up. - lris
^^^ Oh dear. - Catherine Pellegrino
wups. - RepoRat
oh my. that's a problem. - Jenica
oh gosh - maʀtha
WHOA. I feel queasy just thinking about it, that's the kind of "did I imagine sending this email or did I actually send this?" mistake I constantly worry about making. - Regular Amanda
If you're worrying about it you're fine because you can check your Sent box. - Deborah Fitchett
Wouldn't people start asking if they'd been accepted? - ~Courtney F
Didn't they require confirmation of acceptance? - Katy S
I'm not at all sure what was going on with communications. All I know is that people didn't get the email and therefore didn't know to show up. Also, I had stress dreams last night about organizing a conference.... - lris

Too much talking today. Going to hide in my office until quitting time.
Can you bring a +1? - Shevonne
Yeah, bringing a colleague from the library. :) - Derrick
Rack of lamb like a BAWSE. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Don't forget to wear the press hat. - Joe - Systems Analyst
Also the bowtie. - RepoRat
haha, thanks! - Derrick
My engineering chops are rusty, but I'm handling the college while we're searching for a STEM liaison. Today, I impressed an EE undergrad by wrangling Knovel to get a comparison of fuel cells that was exactly what he wanted and he said he was going to show his professor what I taught him. This kind of made my day.
Sorry for bragging, but I've been a humanities librarian for 8 years now. - kaijsa
awesome, way to go! - Marie
Thanks for validating my self-centeredness. I work the desk so little now that it's nice to know I haven't completely lost my reference interview and searching chops. - kaijsa
yayyyyy! - Meg VMeg
The provost of the university is having the big faculty recognition dinner and I need to RSVP. Part of me is curious and wants to go; part of me is intimidated? It's fancy, at the National Press Club, high class invites and while I've worked hard to get here, part of me is I *belong* here? Trying to make sense of it all, I guess.
Normally I'd say fake it til you make it, but you've already made it, so go and have fun. - Katy S
GO and enjoy yourself. Have a free meal on the university and mingle with folks. - Mary Carmen
You got an invite, therefore you belong. Free fancy food! - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Looking at what I just wrote, I guess it's telling about my insecurities, but I *have* worked hard to get here. It's just...such a thing. Mulling it over in favor of attending, I think. - Derrick
Go, but find someone to go with -- a coworker, somebody. I've been to these things (though not as high-falutin' as all that) on my own as a new faculty member and it was weird and awkward to sit at a table with a bunch of old farts (sorry, now-valued colleagues!) who all knew each other but didn't know me. You DO belong, so find someone to belong there WITH. - Catherine Pellegrino
Dude. Go. Your right to be there is beyond question. - Pete
Ooh, plus one. Hrm. - Derrick
I have to think that somewhere there was an invite meeting and someone said "Derrick?" and everyone else said "Fuck yeah" and gave small fist pumps. - Johnny from iPhone
^ Love this. - Steele Lawman
We gonna need to get poppa some new shoes to roll there in style ;) - Jeff (Team マクダジ )
Do you need me to come down there and shake you? Of course you belong. Go, have a great time. - ♫Jorge Covert, Trainer♫
what everyone else said, esp. Catherine -- GO! and go with a good (preferably work) buddy. Also, new shoes might be required, or a new tie or something. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Alright, I'm on it! Thanks for talking me back down from the ledge. - Derrick
take photos & show us!! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
haha, I don't know about all that. :) - Derrick
Glad you're going, D. Belonging is beside the point. They need you. - MoTO Moca Blend
Acquiring plus one... - Derrick
everyone's going to be thinking "Dang, who is that sharp-looking, magnetic guy?" Except for the people who already know you. They'll be thinking, 'YAY DERRICK." - Marianne
Yay Derrick! Be sure to post pics of what you'll be wearing to this soiree. - Corinne L
Y'all are great. For all of my sassy strutting, there are times I really struggle with feeling like I have the chops for these kinds of things. Very much appreciated. - Derrick
Most welcome. FWIW, I still feel that way every time I get a special invitation to something. Or sometimes even a regular invitation :D. - Marianne
Do the damned thing. I feel the same often, but when you're doing it right... - Eric - Watch Me Now
Swanky! Enjoy! - LB: Ratchet Bear
Go have fun. Going to the National Press Club means you will now be a reporter. Be sure to wear a hat that says PRESS on it. - Joe - Systems Analyst
Go! Wear spiffy tie. Win. - Rachel Walden
Go celebrate your success and be comfortable Have fun and yeah it's a good excuse to buy some spiffy clothes - WarLord
I feel the same way sometimes! I give a ++++1 for a "campus events" buddy. - Regular Amanda
So glad you decided to go. Have fun! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
I'm late to the party and happy you decided to go. Events like this are where I've met my best friends/most valuable contacts on campus. - kaijsa
Are you on the faculty? Try it on for size. - awd
Yay D! We want to hear all about it (meaning the food and the gossip and what everyone was wearing, of course). - laura x from iPhone

So yesterday my mom sent me a copy of my dad's army discharge papers. I have been looking for these for over a decade, and it turns out she had them all along.
I can't tell you how strange it is to see his signature from when he was 20 years old, in 1943, and to see a report that his eyes and hair were brown. His hair was always white when I knew him, and no one has ever agreed on the color of his eyes. - laura x
He did not actually serve in WWII--he was discharged six months after he enlisted. One of the reasons I wanted the papers was that I had always heard this but also always heard varying reports about why, and I wanted to see what they had to say. - laura x
Did they solve that mystery? - Steele Lawman
Not yet. ETA: This will clearly require some more research, but now I have some information to start with. - laura x
t-ra: lose,find,repeat
Ha! Just went on a loud rant about race privilege and made everyone in ear shot uncomfortable. I win!

Happy Birthday Lisa! Hope San Diego will treat you to a wonderful day! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Thanks. But, if you can believe it - I've actually been to Richmond, VA and St. Louis since San Diego. All were great! Now HOME for multiple days in a row!!! - Lisa Hinchliffe
I didn't know your birthday was coming up!! Happy Birthday! Next time we're in the same town, I want to buy you a birthday drink! - Hedgehog
I'll take you up on that! :) - Lisa Hinchliffe
Cod Signal: I'm so far failing to figure out what publication this citation comes from, and therefore how to ask for it via ILL. Heaney, Seamus. "What makes a good poet?" Portal no 2 (July 2000). p.5. HELP
The only two journals I can find with that title (one on libraries, one on internat'l studies) weren't being published in 2000, so...*shrug* Maybe the journal title is wrong? Or it's a tiny publication? - Kirsten
I found a citation listing this: ‘What Makes a Good Poet?’, Portal, 2, July, 2000, p. 5...what if portal isn't a journal, but a newspaper or newsletter that was published on july 2, 2000? - Sir Shuping is just sir
Yeah, I found that citation here And I'm casting as wide a net as possible. But maybe it's a teeny publication? - lris
I may have found what Portal was: e July and August issues of Portal, the arts newspaper which is distributed free to all visitors to Ireland's EXPO pavilion, and edited by Pat Boran, (from British Library in bad bookssadbh(at) The Irish Times August 19, 2000) eta: article here: - ~Courtney F
Cool. I heart you people. - maʀtha
i'm having zero luck finding the actual speech, still, though - ~Courtney F
Wow Courtney, you rock - lris
Courtney wins the Meritorious Librarian Award for Searching (And Finding) In Obscure And Out-Of-The-Way Locales. Sheesh. - Catherine Pellegrino
haha! thanks!! I'd like to thank Summon & LexisNexis for their assistance in my achieving this award. :) - ~Courtney F
Famous Seamus! - laura x
