How much I love Katy Perry for stealing the phrase, "eye of the tiger".
And if any Kacey Musgraves fans have missed this, it's so fucking great: - Meg VMeg

I love Katy Perry, though that surprises me every time I acknowledge it. I generally disdain the manufactured pop radio tastemakers, but she's just so damn versatile and always seems to have this look in her eyes as though she letting this happen because she wants it, and she's in control, and she's having a laugh with us. - Holly's favorite Anna
Love Kacey Musgraves, but hadn't seen your first link yet - thanks! - ellbeecee
Crap, Anna, I missed your comment. Yes. - Meg VMeg

Requesting IT to unblock an LGBT news not make me unleash Friday hell, people.
I once had to write to our IT folks to unblock FriendFeed. Turns out, it was right after the auto-timeline moving was added, and the spam-protecting bots thought it was malicious software. - lris
Don't make me have to come down there and box the IT department's ears. Here's hoping it's something innocuous. - laura x
It took until today but they've unblocked it now. - Rachel Walden
*whew* ... Is Friday hell anything like fresh hell? - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
Friday hell is just like fresh hell except worse because why are you messing up my Friday I mean I'm prepared for nonsense on Monday... ;) - Rachel Walden

My 12-year-old son seems to be coming across YouTube videos filled with misinformation about feminism. I don't want to raise another aggrieved privileged white boy, so any recommendations for videos, channels, sites that are pro-feminist and boy-friendly?
*father of 11yo boy tunes in* - Stephen Francoeur
Recommending this with some reservations because of a recent poorly-considered and poorly-handled site merger, but: - RepoRat
this post is probably too "on point" to be of interest, but it made me feel better than I had in ages about video game sites, and eurogamer, in particular: - Marianne
I wish it were A LOT EASIER to answer this question! - Marianne
I'm planning on having my 14 yo kid look at when he gets back from his week away at camp. - Joe
Crap, all I can think of is Target Women: But I don't know if that's too adult or (even worse) too boring for 12 year-olds. - Meg VMeg
I wonder if John Scalzi's "lowest difficulty setting" post would be too preachy for a 12yo? - Catherine Pellegrino
Thanks, everyone! I have a lot of watching/reading to do. (And thanks, Catherine, because I knew that I'd read that analogy before but didn't know where. The analogy might resonate for him, even if Scalzi's delivery might not.) - Steele Lawman
Interesting article, Marianne! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Yes, the Brain Scoop! that's what I was trying to remember, e.g., - maʀtha
(You're welcome, Steve! I thought the analogy might communicate well. And honestly, depending on how you feel about salty language, a LOT of what Scalzi writes might be good for him to hear.) - Catherine Pellegrino
this is just a list of facts, related to that post, but they are IMPORTANT facts: I found when people eyeroll at the analogy, some solid facts from solid sources are a good way to make them rethink. especially if they've been getting a lot of misinformation. - Marianne
on a related topic, when the time comes, you know about Scarleteen, right? - maʀtha
Feminist high school boys ask: Are you a feminist? (perhaps a little dry, but, relevant) - maʀtha
and what about some anime? Spirited Away, perhaps? - maʀtha
Might be something useful toward the bottom of - RepoRat
What sort of misinformation is he encountering? I am just curious. - laura x
and are you able to discuss it with him? or is he too sulky teen for that? - maʀtha
He brings it up, so it's something he's interested in and apparently he wants to talk about it. By "misinformation," I mean the notion that feminists think that women are better than men, or that violence against men is funny. I think he's also encountering the "not all men" point of view that feels unfairly targeted. - Steele Lawman
It's going to be hard to find a lot of video channels, because YouTube is one of the most hostile places to women posting feminist content. Will think on it and recommend if something comes up. - Rachel Walden
The "Tropes vs Women in Video Games" series? (I haven't actually watched very much of it so no idea if it's suitable for him or not but came to mind when Rachel mentioned YouTube as a hostile place for women...) - Deborah Fitchett
Adventure Time - who's main character ages each season and is now 15 - deals with the emotional life of a teenage boy in a remarkable way (caveat: not having been a teenage boy, this opinion is just a hunch) and the Vlogbrothers channel is great too, although the advice is usually the same: "use your words": an example: Why I love makeup: - copystar
Jim Hines's cover-pose series is a great way to talk about representation, while also getting across the idea that men can be feminists: - RepoRat
I definitely do not think of Adventure Time as explicitly feminist or educational about feminism. Vlogbrothers can occasionally get the point, but it would be nice if we could come up with some recommendations of actual women for him to listen to. Most of the feminism 101 materials I'm familiar with are going to be too advanced for him at this age, as are most of the books I would... more... - Rachel Walden
I didn't mean to suggest that Vlogbrothers or Adventure Time were explicitly feminist. But I think that they are "boy-friendly" media where relationship matters are addressed in a serious way that I think most feminists would respond positively to. - copystar
Read this before you recommend it to Mr. 12, because there's some pretty intense stuff in it, but maybe Strong Female Protagonist - RepoRat
Thank you, peoples who gave us the Home Depot gift certificate! We went wild today purchasing materials for staining the sideboard, a yard waste container, new leather work gloves for me, extra house keys, an indoor recycling bin, plus sundry household items. Yay!
This is all very handy because most of our parents descend upon us on Friday and I find myself suddenly Very Motivated to do All The Things :) - maʀtha
just used the Zappos gift certificate - maʀtha

Some colleagues and I are working on a Massive Analysis Project (MAP) of Scopus and Web of Science. While the report will be used for internal decision-making, we think it may be of interest to others and we would like to rework it into an article. What OA journal might make a good home for such a topic?
what's a MAP? I haven't run into the term before. - RepoRat
What kind of analysis? Would make sense? Or, JASIST allows people to post green OA. (Author's Pre-print: green tick author can archive pre-print (ie pre-refereeing) Author's Post-print: green tick author can archive post-print (ie final draft post-refereeing)) - Joe
Practical Academic Librarianship might be interested in it for how it was used for decision-making. and JLSC too, depending on the decisions being made. Portal? - jambina
CRL is also now OA and might be a great choice. - Sarah
MAP is just the acronym we came of with for "Massive Analysis Project" so that we could cleverly say things like "MAPing for the future. It really just means a whole bunch of data - as many different kinds as we could get to show/demonstrate use and types of use. Our report is 17 pages so far w/o appendices and includes quantitative user data (COUNTER, ILL, A-Z list clickthroughs, vendor-provided analytics, select use by department and population, etc.) as well as user-reported qualitative data. - Galadriel C.
Thank you very much for the ideas! I'll know more about how the analysis will be used for decision making in a couple of weeks. - Galadriel C.
I'll second CRL -- I think they'd eat this up. - RepoRat
And we finished our report! 23 pages of report + appendices = 50+ pages. I'm very happy it's Friday. - Galadriel C.
I look forward to reading about this project. - Marie
i want to see it, too. - Christina Pikas
the main bibliometrics journals are elsevier, springer, and wiley... sad to say. so can archive pre-print but not green oa final :( - Christina Pikas
If we're not back in a few days pls send for a forest ranger. -

Oh wow, I just found my notes and handouts from my very first library instruction session! And man oh man have I learned a lot since then...
I covered everything and the kitchen sink in 20 minutes. Hold onto your hats!!! - lris
I kind of think that my library instruction career has been a consistent trend towards covering less and less as time goes on. By the time I retire I probably won't be teaching anything at all. - Catherine Pellegrino

Super excited! I just figured out how to find lingering commitments in Voyager. Cleaning up the data before the rollover. Whew!
I want to know what things Anna DOESN'T do well. She's kind of amazing. - Marie
Of course I don't brag about all the times I screw up. - Holly's favorite Anna from Android
We just ran our last roll-over on Voyager, which is sad as we're finally getting the hang of it! - Jen
Did you know about the fund transactions report? It's pretty freakin' awesome for finding commitments that haven't been paid. That and a pivot table. - Holly's favorite Anna
I'm going to ask our acquisitions folk if this would be of interest to them before our migration.... - Deborah Fitchett
Update: apparently this would be useful. How do we get this report? - Deborah Fitchett
You'll need to have Voyager Reports set up (i.e. the access tables). They come with a bunch of canned reports. This is one of them. "Fund Transactions - All" is the name of the query. You'll need the normal ledger name and the fiscal year. I exported to Excel and ran a pivot table with REFERENCE_NO as the row and summed TransAmount in the column. Anything that wasn't a zero was something to investigate as a commitment without a payment or vice versa. - Holly's favorite Anna
I also found this worked better for serials than monographs, I think due in part to the way we handle purchase orders with multiple associated invoices in one fiscal year. - Holly's favorite Anna

Any Chapter authors from the LSW as well? (other than Kaijsa and Cassandra...) - Joe
Thanks, Joe. I don't think any of our authors are in LSW, but my mind may be blanking. - kaijsa
Is that the LISNews Blake Carver? He's around here. - ellbeecee
Blake, you need to update your WP. - Joe
Hey now. Are you book signing at the big shindig next week? - ♫Jorge Covert, Trainer♫
Right! I can't believe I forgot Blake--my brain is overloaded. - kaijsa
I'm not doing a signing, but if you buy a copy, you should definitely get any of the authors you see to sign their chapters. We had so many amazing librarians contribute to this book. I'm very grateful. - kaijsa
also, I did my undergrad with Jenn Kelley - she's awesome :) - ellbeecee
