Arrived at work to mystery umbrella on my desk. Is it a gift? A warning? Something more sinister? This is what happens when I'm out for a week. ;)
umbrella.jpg
It's for you to cover yourself when the s**t hits the fan? - Aaron the Librarian
Possible, Aaron. I got the real answer, though, and it's far less interesting. The business librarian & I have done a series of workshops this semester with the SBDC. The umbrella was a gift from the SBDC at the final workshop last week when I was out, and business librarian left mine n my desk for me. - ellbeecee
Nah. That's just its cover story. - lris
that's a pretty cool gift - maʀtha
I'm with Iris on this one. Keep an eye on it. - Catherine Pellegrino

She calls out publishers for selling e-books for more to libraries than individuals. Also, posting because she rocks! - Katy S from Bookmarklet
Great speech - but I'm waiting to see if she sends a take-down. She can be pretty hardnosed about her copyrights and people posting her words online. - barbara fister
David Handler made a terrible dog's breakfast of the YA win. Black author - watermelon jokes. Plus foolishness about the Coretta Scott King award. So disappointing (as was the general silence in response - only excusable if they couldn't find their jaws on the floor). - barbara fister
Daniel Handler? ETA: yes, it's him. Googling found me this: http://gawker.com/lemony-... - kaijsa
Handler was terrible. - Katy S
He is donating $100,000 matching to We Need Diverse Books - happy to see that. Though still - oi.https://www.indiegogo.com/project... - barbara fister
I saw that this morning. Money is nice, but I'm more interested to see what he does in the future. - Katy S from iPhone
He strikes me as the kind of person who will learn from a fuckup. We probably won't have a chance to find out any time soon, however. - RepoRat
I have heard that he can be a jerk, but I get the impression that he could learn from all of this, too. - Katy S from iPhone
I found him thoroughly delightful at an 826 benefit a few years ago, and while he was kind of saucy, he didn't say anything that offended liberal Seattleites. I've never had personal interactions with him. - kaijsa
He has said publicly his words were racist. Stupid to say them, but he's owning up to what was wrong which is sadly unusual. - barbara fister from iPhone
Yes. He apologized for real, not just the standard "sorry if you were offended" nonsense. It's a good sign that he took responsibility, but it still boggles my mind that he thought those jokes were okay. - kaijsa
link to the better apology, please? - maʀtha

Looks like I'm the first faculty member to ask if I can add my collected data, codebooks, and instruments for various research projects to our repository. Very pleased about this (especially as I'm coming up against unwillingness to share a validated instrument for librarystuffs *sadpanda*).
We're still trying to work out how to best handle datasets in our repository, but I hope we can do this, too. Our field needs to share this stuff! Good on you. - kaijsa
We are beginning to look into IR software, and have been also considering which are most flexible for large datasets. I'd love advice! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
BagIt and dump it in any old thing. (only kinda joking) - jambina from iPhone

Do you have a MacBook Air? If so, what size, and do you like it?
I have a 4-year-old Air in the big size (13") and I love it. It's still running like new and is on Yosemite, but I've had to replace the charger twice because the cords fray eventually. A good friend got the 11" at the same time and I'm kind of jealous of him because that would fit my purse. - kaijsa
3 year old 11". Its good laptop. Sits by my bed for when the tablet can't cut it. Its also the bedrooms Media center for when the Roku won't cut it. It also is the guest laptop when needed. I don't like people on my main rigs. - Me
Two year old, 13", love it. - Todd Hoff
2012 Macbook Air 13" with 256G SSD. Best laptop I've ever had. - Eric - Regulate
I miss my 13" Air. Easily best laptop I ever had. - Jason Griffey from iPhone
I live off of my 2013 11" Air. Can be fully opened on any economy class plane or train on the planet* [*that I've tested it on] - Cameron Neylon
So for someone who has never owned a mac and want to start using what would you recommend? - aaron from Flucso
That depends. If you're using it for normal library stuff, then a macbook air of some size is probably fine. If you're going to be doing media editing on it, then a macbook pro. - DJF from Android
I really just want something I can write on (and check FF on) that doesn't want to install updates for 15 minutes every damn time I open it up. - laura x from iPhone
For writing, do you need Word? Because if not -- especially if Google Docs is an acceptable alternative -- I'd really recommend a Chromebook. Plus, they're super-inexpensive. - Catherine Pellegrino
No, I almost never write in Word (I haven't even owned it in years). I just want a keyboard and trackpad I don't hate and a computer that's not constantly in need of Windows updates. - laura x from iPhone
I still use the 2010 11". I still love it. The battery could be better. - Rodfather from Android
We got J this one about 6 months ago, and I use it for Google Apps work stuff sometimes, and it's been lovely: extremely portable and reliable, no (noticable) updates. Can't say whether you'd hate the trackpad, though: http://amzn.com/B00FJXVRM8 - Catherine Pellegrino
I'm LOVING my new Chromebook 11 for writing!!! - Lisa L. Seifert from iPhone
I have a Chromebook and it's good for web surfing stuff, but the sound and trackpad are so inferior to my Air that I rarely use it. I use mine mostly in the kitchen with recipes. Can't beat the price, though. - kaijsa
Yeah, the price is great, but so was the price on my current laptop, which I hate. Maybe I'll brave Best Buy tomorrow and see if I can try some things out. - laura x from iPhone
If you're willing to pay more for a better machine, I am biased toward recommending a Mac. - kaijsa
Macs cost more than cheap laptops. They also last two or three times longer than cheap laptops. - DJF
I adore my 13" Air. And I also am quite fond of the gaming laptop we have at home, but my hatred for its constant need for Windows updates is unspeakable. So if you don't need the graphics or processing power of something more robust, the Air is, IMO, unbeatable. - Jenica
Windows updates take forever, too. - kaijsa
Mac all the way. Jojo (son) loves his Air. I have a 13" non-Retina Pro that I'll trade in for a 15" Retina this summer (it's a VAR program here where I trade in the machine every two years). Because Macs last longer when you're not driving it into the ground with giant image and video files and hundreds of megs of font files, you can save a few hundred dollars by buying a refurb from Apple or a machine that's a couple years old from http://macsales.com or http://smalldog.com. - Mary B: #TeamMonique
2 yr old 13" MacBook Air - Best thing I've ever owned. - SAM
I made my wife and parents all get 13" MBAs. They like 'em just fine. My parents travel at least two-three times a year so they really like the lightness. - rönin
Wow. You *made* your wife get a specific computer. I've only been married 36.9 years so far; I can't even imagine *making* my wife buy a specific computer (or much of anything else). (OK, so we're both happy Windows users, even with the usually-once-a-month updates.) - Walt Crawford
And, admittedly, if I was traveling a lot I'd probably buy a lighter machine. It would probably be a Chromebook. - Walt Crawford
Tech stuff are the only things I can get away w/doing that. She just doesn't care w/computers & phones. I just hand her things, "Here, use this." Anything else in the house though, forget about it. - rönin
Until my current machine, I've always had Macs at home. I decided to save money last time I got a computer and I have been regretting it ever since. I've gone back to writing by hand because I know by the time the current machine gets going, I'll have forgotten my idea. Mostly I'm wondering if people find the Air a satisfying alternative to a MacBook Pro, which I don't want to pay for. - laura x from iPhone
It doesn't have the retina screen, otherwise I like mine (13 in) - maʀtha
Laura, the biggest differences between the air and the pro are the optical drive and the number of ports. If you don't use cds/dvds, and don't plug a lot of stuff into your computer, then you can get away with an air. I got a pro because I needed those extra connections. - DJF
Thanks--that was my impression, but I wanted to be sure I wasn't missing something I should be thinking about. Now I just have to find some money hiding under a rock or something. - laura x from iPhone
well, the pro also has a faster processor, but that's not a problem if all you're doing is web/email/youtube/netflix. - DJF
If you buy an Air, I've heard that getting extra RAM will make the computer last much longer (i.e., you'll have room for OS upgrades and new applications). You can also buy discounted Applecare on Ebay (though you should use PayPal and "beware fraudulent sellers" : http://www.ebay.com/gds... ). These are all my plans when I get around to replacing my MacBook with an Air. - Meg VMeg
You can also get extra RAM and flash memory later. My bro is a Genius and is going to help me upgrade my Air (I might put in a faster processor, too). I'd love the retina screen, but can't justify replacing a machine that runs almost perfectly even if it's getting old. Correction: he's a Creative who works Genius a few hours a week. Sorry, Brother. - kaijsa
DJF: no more cd/dvd drives in the MacBook pro, fwiw...haven't been for a couple of cycles now. - Jason Griffey from iPhone
Kaijsa: you can't actually get new RAM for the Air...the ram is soldered to the motherboard, not slotted. I'm fairly sure even the Geniuses don't do that level of hardware work. - Jason Griffey from iPhone
Yeah, he just corrected me and said I can add bigger flash memory but not RAM. This is okay for my purposes. - kaijsa
So I assume I would then want to start with the largest amount of RAM possible? - laura x
^^ yes. And I TOTALLY support a MacBook Air - I LURVE mine. It's so light for conferences & so much easier to type on than a tablet. It's pricey tho, but worth it, imho. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
I have the latest 15" MacBook Pro, and I like it much better than the previous version I had. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Get the best standard config MacBook air (ie they sell four models at Best Buy, the best one) as d you should be good for the life of the laptop. - Eric - Regulate from iPhone
I would recommend: 11" Macbook Air w/8GB RAM. Best laptop and OS I've ever used. I would never buy a Windows or Chrome machine. Life is too short for mediocrity. - Heisenberg

Now I'm less argybargy because ellbeecee made me laugh, but I still would like to raise the possibility of future argybargy at: streaming media purchase models. We are hearing that VHS and DVD are totally outmoded, so we should only buy streaming media moving forward, but you can't actually "buy" streaming media, just rent it for three years.
So... abrogation of basic library ethics, anyone? On the other hand, our population really does only want streaming media. But I just don't want to buy into the new economic order of "lease or die". - Regular Amanda
Also, you're paying for the content, but the vendors get to track your patrons being habits. - DJF from Android
This would be a good ethical discussion for various media-centric entities (SLA/ALA, divisions, sections, RTs, etc) to really hash out and figure out how to address things - because the way things are going right now, those discussions are already waaay overdue - Aaron the Librarian
I'd love to see something like a streaming media bill of rights. Something to put pressure in vendors. - Regular Amanda from Android
^^^ agreed. We have held out for buying DVDs. Faculty who rely on film support that. (We are a residential college, which makes a difference.) Financially, it makes no sense for us to pay all over again when listed courses are often taught only every other year or even less frequently. - barbara fister
Who's telling you DVDs are totally outmoded? If by DVD you include Blu-ray, that's nonsense: Yes, streaming may dominate, but DVD's not going away this year or next. (Last I heard, Netflix founder figured they'd stop mailing discs around 2030...) - Walt Crawford
I should note that CDs, which died YEARS ago, still sell by the billions. - Walt Crawford
Walt: People trying to sell streaming media to libraries. - laura x from iPhone
Laura: Yeah, that sounds exactly right. Oh, and every Technology Guru. Show some of those people a printed daily newspaper and their heads might explode. - Walt Crawford
The concern with our population (college students) is that new computers don't have CD/DVD drives. Which for us is a legitimate concern, but is accepting a horrible purchase model ok even if it gives your patrons better access? I have so many feelings about this. - Regular Amanda from Android
We have a lot of online classes, so that coupled with the lack of disc drives in computers is a big reason we're trying to stream. Also streaming gives multiple people access to a title at the same time, which is pretty important for big classes. It's a struggle to deal with licenses, and we definitely need to push for better terms. - kaijsa
we should be teaching this in LIS, as well as discussing it as Aaron says. In the Journalism school, we have a class on Ethics - but I don't see an ethics class, or even discussion, in LIS. Otherwise, I agree with all of the above. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Another case where academic libraries differ from public libraries: You can presumably assume true broadband availability for almost all students and the simultaneous-streaming may be a *need.* (Right now, for many public libraries, "buying" streaming is explicitly advantaging the already-advantaged...but that''s another discussion I've mostly given up on.) - Walt Crawford
We can assume broadband availability *on campus* but not off. That has been an issue even for students here in town--I know some grad students can't afford internet at home, for example. In Wyoming, lots of our students are rural and not in Laramie and the public libraries are a *huge* part of their college experience. We work pretty hard to collaborate with the county and CC libraries to make this all work, but it's not perfect. - kaijsa

Considering an attempt at a big-girl grant for an infolit initiative. I have faculty buy-in to test a pilot in SP15 for what the grant would be to do big-time in F15/SP16. Hmmmm. *rubs hands together*

My wish for today: that LibGuides 2 would have a 37/37/26 3 column layout!
Uh, is the 26 for the profile box? Because that's pretty much what I've been wanting, too. I miss custom column widths! - kaijsa
Yes, precisely! I don't want the profile box any bigger, but *really* want equal sized content boxes!! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
In general, I like 2.0, but it needs a couple of things. For one, I want to be able to make boxes that span all columns, not just a top and bottom box. Top box pushes everything down too much. I am difficult to please. - kaijsa
this can be done with css hacks - I've done this by accident a few times and it took a bit to figure out how I goofed it up (didn't document it, sorry) - Aaron the Librarian
kajisa, I was surprised that the column spanning boxes were so fixed. I thought we would have the ability to span 2 out of 3 columns, and also to put a column spanner in the middle of the page. I also would like the ability to put images inside boxes full of databases or links-- I really want to add more visual zing to my pages, but the way we have to work with graphics makes that hard - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
That said, I do like Springshare stuff. It's pretty simple and mostly flexible and does what I basically want with very little effort on my part. I just always want moar. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
You can insert images in boxes full of links. I've broken up links with multimedia/html items. What you said about column spanning boxes is exactly what I wanted and thought we were going to get. - kaijsa
If you have Libguides CMS you get unlimited templates so it would be possible to set some up that allowed for more column-spanning areas. Without CMS you are still able to customize templates somewhat but it's much more limited. - JffKrlsn

I find myself in the new position of telling a faculty member what friends have often told me about library sessions I'm not very confident about: Don't worry, so what if we aren't as prepared as we wanted to be for this, the students will get something out of it and there's no need to over-complicate our lives or start a round of sel-flagellation.
I have had lots of really well-prepared lib sessions go south. Many unexpected imrpov successes. This is what is known as teaching. Lots of independent variables over which we have little control. - barbara fister
