I would fire my housekeeper if I weren't my housekeeper.
Our housekeepers must be part of the same union. - Steele Lawman
Is there something like a better business bureau that we can report this dumb union to? - lris
Mine is just unbelievable about letting dust collect on things. - RepoRat
And don't even get me STARTED about the cat hair everywhere. - lris
It's so hard to get good help these days. - Steele Lawman
My housekeeper keeps saying she is exhausted. Either clean clothing or clean house, not both. - Janet from FFHound!

I still like the Ebsco autosuggest for cyber warfare to caber warfare - Christina Pikas
^^^ That is brilliant. - Catherine Pellegrino
Depending on how the vote has gone .... - barbara fister
I remember students posting some interesting ones for Encore.. I think one went "Singapore general elections" and it went "did you mean 'Singapore fairy tales' "..... Can't duplicate it anymore or find the screenshot. - aaron
Some days I bust out the giant Post-It paper and markers in class just because I think it's fun.
Extra-big markers. - Meg VMeg
YES - jambina
I think it's the heady reaction to the smell of the markers, personally - Aaron the Librarian
The students were confused at first, but they are first-years and it seems everything is confusing to them. Their prof was way into it. - kaijsa

I'm… not sure how to interpret this. Is this supposed to be threatening or helpful? (via melinnateatrina)
That's totally threatening in my book. - SAM
F*ck kale. - SAM

Happy to contribute! - Zamms
Laura, you are a treasure. - kaijsa
Hey Laura, can I send you a revised Berlin All graphic? Just noticed my kid's name mentioned it so I want to crop it a little. - Zamms
And now it is also automatically fed into the LSW room. Heeeeeeeeeeee - lris
Well played! - Zamms
Zamms, yes, please do--or just go ahead and submit it and I'll delete the other one. - laura x
I found the avatar by searching for search fail, licensed for reuse with modification on Google images: - laura x
"yoga poses" and "otitis externa" just made me guffaw at the reference desk. Damn you, Auto-Suggest! - Catherine Pellegrino
This is just so awesome. - Galadriel C.
Oh darn. Can't recreate my favorite. They turned of suggest globally in our ebscohost. Oh wait - publib! - Christina Pikas from iPhone
Delightful. - Marie
I am sending this link to MPOW's cataloger. *evil chuckle* - Catherine Pellegrino
I love this so much. - Meg VMeg
This definitely goes in my best thing ever file. - Megan loves summer
related, in a weird way: - RepoRat
I found the "Did you mean: sex video?" screenshot from Primo.
Maybe you were looking for Sex, Lies, and Videotape? - Joe
I just tried the search again today, and it asks if I mean "art video", which is better, though from my knowledge of Valley of the Dolls, I think it means the same thing. - Zamms
Our Primo suggests "fan video." I think it's just messing with our heads. - Catherine Pellegrino

Rock on. "To promote openness and fairness among libraries that license scholarly resources, the University of Alberta Libraries (UAL) will no longer enter into vendor contracts that require non-disclosure of pricing information or other information that does not constitute a trade secret."
"If we bought a video and gave it to Alexander Street, would they add it to the Filmakers Library Online collection?"
I've gotten similar questions... - LibrarianOnTheLoose
Teaching moments! - Zamms
It's not that crazy of a request. We use Kanopy for this, and it's great. Faculty love it, even if it's a different platform. Edited to correct spelling. - kaijsa
duuuude. - Marie
kaijsa, got a link? - Zamms
Sorry, I always spell it wrong. It's Kanopy. Look at hosted content under "how it works." - kaijsa
Cool, thanks! - Zamms from iPhone

Another daily round of electronic resources whack-a-mole. There's always something to fix or tweak. #libux

The only thing better than sharing a Snopes link on a friend's Facebook meme, debunking it completely, is posting a link to the exact same meme they posted 2 years ago where I also posted that Snopes link.
re-Snope'd! - Jennifer Dittrich

I've been negotiating a license now for over a month. When we sign off on this I am getting a disco ball installed in my office.
Wow, disco balls are actually pretty reasonably priced. - Marie
They get you with the rotator. If you just want the ball to sit there, it's cheap. - Brian Johns
Dangit! - Marie

I don't quite understand vendors who say to me "Would you like to renew? I can send a quote". Just send me the quote! I can't decide on a renewal without cost information.
I presume that they're hoping that if you say "Yes" you'll feel psychologically pressured to stick with that even after you see the price hike. - Deborah Fitchett
Answer: "No. But send the quote to me anyway so I can more easily justify my refusal" [eta and/or giggle about the size of your increase from last year with my acquisitions colleagues] - Aaron the Librarian
"Can I call you this, the first week of classes, to talk about the renewal quote that I will send you after we have said confirmation? Can we talk even after I know you're going to renew?" - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
"Before I send you the quote, please send me my major competitor's quote for this product." - Heather
Yo Dawg, I herd you like quotes, so I put an quote in your renewal so you can decide while you decide. - Holly's favorite Anna

Once in a while, abbreviating for a URL is a bit unfortunate, as in the OA journal Business Management Dynamics:

First and second slides of a short deck I'm using in a class later today:
Whoa, is that on purpose? Or a backronym. - Meg VMeg
The M - ML - MT arrangement? I have to think it's on purpose. We happen to have the only logical letter in the entire LC classification. - Catherine Pellegrino
"Awesome. So when I go to BS...." - barbara fister
Every schedule in LC was designed by a different working group with subject matter expertise. This is why there's no uniformity between major classes. - DJF from Android
I do have a really hard time helping students find call numbers in the BS range while keeping a straight face. - Catherine Pellegrino
^^ I am so glad it's not just me. I predict that this will continue to be funny to me, for as long as I work in libraries. - Regular Amanda
"All of this section is total BS. Enjoy!" - YvonneM
The LOC classification makes me cry. - ♫Robot Chicken, Trainer♫
Damn right library science is under Z. - Zamms
Chris, I think you mean Zzzzzzz. - Stephen Francoeur

Parenting is hard, late stage capitalism is a clusterfuck, women are screwed. I have now saved you the trouble of reading a lot of books.
