Uh oh. Mom is talking to head gardener next door. Dad has been trying all day to get her attention. Now he's mowing the law. He's sort of claimed her as his friend. (Even though he's now also buddies with Manuel at the garden center who gave him some red aparagus from his garden this morning.) Will he let this aggression stand?

A senior from the college I went to contacted me to talk about library school and career advice. Aside from Lauren Pressley's book, So You Want to Be a Librarian, I'd like to recommend some things to read. Didn't some of you CodFolk write blog posts about what to expect in library school?
Me to EBSCO support: Did you know "Time" is marked as an "Academic Journal" in your MEDLINE? E: NLM does not distinguish between various source types, so we mark everything as academic.

my Plan for Transparency is continuing. our next project begins today: scanning license agreements into PDF, storing them in a pswd protected folder, and linking to the agreements from our resource records. i want our librarians to be able to review our rights/restrictions whenever they want.
I'm SPECIAL. Would it be pointless to not renew my membership to a professional LIBRARY organization because they sold my information to spammers? I'd kinda like to rejoin but the amount of spam and junk mail I get because this ASSOCIATION sold me out makes me angry. Would it make any difference if I told them I'm out because of this?
HBR and EBSCO shenanigans... "As of August 2013, some changes will be made to Harvard Business Review (HBR) article access for Business Source customers. This change will not affect institutions that have already purchased the expanded rights from Harvard Business Publishing."
