360 Linker seems to be held together with rubber bands and chewing gum. We're getting weird no results errors intermittently that our ERLs can't replicate and there's nothing that can actually be reported well. Link resolver fails make us look bad and I'm tired of it. This isn't a question, just a rant.
Do you have a Workload Policy? Something that includes %'s for Librarianship, Service, Research and Scholarship? What percentages do you have? Are these reflected in your job description or are they just a general policy? Do you have time set aside for research that your supervisor encourages?
This humanities librarian is about to teach a session on how to find and use international datasets, world development indicators, and other statistical resources to a senior/grad global studies class. I sort of know what I'm doing.
Looking to revise our reference stats collection and struggling with too much vs. not enough info. Anybody have examples of what you're collecting (type of patron, type of question categories, other data) that you find really useful and would be willing to share?
Nice article - "Bridges and Barriers: Factors Influencing a Culture of Assessment in Academic Libraries"

I work at an academic institution where I'm staff. I'd like to relocate but the positions I've come across are largely tenure track. I haven't published or done research.

Dear LSW, please forgive my intrusion but I'm hoping your collective expertise can help MPOW with a policy decision. Faculty want us to rip DVDs and stream them through out CMS (Moodle). We understand that we can stream under the aegis of the TEACH Act but we don't know if we have permission (via copyright statute exemptions) to actually make a...
I just clicked on a link to ProQuest Statistical Insight and got prompted by Oxford University Press to log in to the Chinese Journal of International Law. This, ladies and gentlemen, is why my co-worker and I click every link on our A-Z list, from off-campus, monthly. #WTF
So, let's pretend you are a small college with no archivist, and minimal tech support, but you have about 1200 photos scanned on drives. And you want to put them into an online gallery for public display. What would you use to do that?
Academic librarians, what kinds of credit-bearing courses do you or your librarian colleagues teach at your institution? I'm trying to get a sense of the levels (lower-division, upper-division, graduate), type (for majors, gen ed, etc.), and subject or content areas. Thanks in advance!
I would love to see some LSW faces at this summer's Institute for Research Design in Librarianship. Consider submitting a proposal so you can hang out with me for two weeks and learn how to construct a research project? http://irdlonline.org
