I'm putting together a journal list for one of our TRIO programs, which has grant money to buy some paper subscriptions. They're especially interested in biology, engineering, and computer science--and I'm trying not to overlap with library subscriptions. Any suggestions for high-level, but not necessarily scholarly, publications in these areas?
Do any of your libraries include special notes in the OPAC indicating faculty or alumni publications? Is it searchable? If you don't do this, have you had requests for something like this? I'm trying to figure out what might make sense, but worry about stressing out tech services requesting a big project if it's not worth it.
Anybody know how to get Endnote 5 to stop using odd line breaks in the bibliography? I can manually correct it but if patron closes/reopens document the line breaks are back... (Switching citation managers not an option)
Anyone have a good guide to how to use Web of Knowledge? I'm going to be teaching an instruction session for a psychology research methods class and I've only used the basics of it before, but have a feeling that I need to know a bit more for the class. thanks in advance
Collection Development Question of the Day: Should an academic library own "50 Shades of Grey"? Sure, it's not scholarly or even good (according nearly all reviews), but does it have a place on our shelves? Does it have a place in American studies? Gender & Sexuality studies? "Crap Lit"? Many librarians won't touch it. Thoughts?
Did anyone else recently have their student loans transferred to Sallie Mae? My April payment didn't go through but now I can't actually find the loan anywhere. Students loans: complicating my shit up since 2001. Whimper whimper.
Any of your institutions support Libx toolbar or similar? I am thinking of introducing it since we switching over to 360link which is way easier to setup then webbridge but not sure LibX is worth the trouble since it seems 2.0 doesn't work with IE and 1.5 is flaky. Is it worth or fair introducing a tool only Firefox and Chrome users....
Hi folks, question from my dean and I: does your library provide 24 hour study? Whether it's a room open 24 hours or actual library hours of 24/7 or 5? We are compiling a list of institutions that do this. Thanks in advance!
Is anyone going to, or has anyone every been to this event in the past: http://www.cni.org/ if so, what can you tell me about it? My supervisor suggested that I might be a good representative to attend from our library.
Study rooms! If you have 'em, how do you go about allocating time and space in them in an equitable manner? We have them first come, first serve, and so the first six people who get to the library get them and park there all day. This is not cool. Then again, having the ref people spend all their time policing study rooms is also not cool.
Question for those of y'all in Academic Libraries/campuses. If you have graphic novels in your collection do you catalog them by LC number and shelve them in that area or do you have a special section to group them into so people can find them all in one spot?
