#ALAac14 was great, I have amazing friends who don’t seem to think I’m crazy for quitting my job and hanging out my own shingle. <3 you all.
Stephen Francoeur
I knew it would happen some day. After 12 years doing chat reference, I finally typed "pee-reviewed" instead of "peer-reviewed."

Are you printing using your library card or a guest pass? Your card? Okay, so you're going to go ahead and print. It will tell you that you owe money, only you don't owe money unless it is over $1.00, in which case you have to go add money to your card at the front desk. So then you click OK. Then you go over to the print release station
which is actually just this other computer, and you reenter your library barcode and PIN. Then you select your print jobs from this list by clicking on them. Then you click Print. Then you click "Pay from AAM Allocation Account," which is the dollar a day we give you for free, only actually you have to click on the little picture/icon next to it, which is apparently a present with a bow? Then your print job should print. - laura x
Oh, a guest pass? Okay, so go ahead and print. Then it will ask if you want to send this as a guest job. Click okay. Then it will tell you how much money you owe. Take your guest pass to the front desk to pay for it. They'll release it for you, and then you come back here to pick it up. It's like aerobic exercise! - laura x
So what are the printing instructions at YOUR library like? - laura x
Okay, so select "print" from the "File" menu. Now enter your email username and password. Yes, I know you just entered it in order to log in to the computer; go ahead and enter it again. Now click "OK." Check the number of pages and the cost that it's showing you, to make sure you're not printing, like, a thousand pages. Now enter your email username and password. Yes, again. No, I... more... - Catherine Pellegrino
File-Print. Print. Go to one of MFD printers. Log in, select Release. Highlight print job, press blue button. - Pete : Team Marina
That only applies at campus I work in, and when you go to File-Print you *do* need to choose appropriate queue from one of two. It's still a *lot* simpler than it used to be... - Pete : Team Marina
Oh, I forgot to mention the part where you have to choose black and white or color and single sided or double sided. - laura x
Oh yeah there's that. Default is B&W double sided. - Pete : Team Marina
Ours defaults to single-sided; there is no color printing on campus for students. - Catherine Pellegrino
File-print. Print. (I'm always forgetting this step, no, seriously.) Go to a printer and put your swipe card on it to release the job. (This includes backroom staff and it drives me up the wall. I want to print and by the time I've got to the printer it's sitting there waiting for me.) - Deborah Fitchett
The only thing I hate more than explaining printing is explaining to people why their books are setting off the alarms on the gates when they check out at the self-check. - laura x
File-print. Pick double (default) or single sided printer (do not set doublesided printer to single side. Please.) Print. Go to printer and swipe card. Select from list--it tells you how much--and click Print. Assuming you have enough money on card (no freebies here) it'll print. Oh, unless you are downstairs where there are only B&W and you wanted color. Then you have to go upstairs... more... - Rebecca Hedreen
So first we have to print the file here at the computer. Oh, with Chrome it's easiest to just right-click on the webpage. OK, now walk over here to the release station and touch... oh wait, no, use the mouse to select your name. Cool, now select the jobs you want to print. now click confirm. and confirm again. Good. Hm, it didn't print. Oh, this printer is jammed. Yeah, you WOULD think... more... - Marianne
File-print. Pick the one that looks generic, the one that DOESN'T say color. When you sent it before, did it say color? That's why it said it would cost so much. Toggle the thing to the generic one. No, yes, you can toggle it. There is a more generic option. Great, now put in your email ID and password. Not the email address, just the part before the @. Excellent. Now tap or swipe your... more... - Meg VMeg
Sorry, you only need to print 1 sheet? Oh. Well, printing costs 10cents a page, and are you affiliated with the university? Oh. So you can pay 80cents to get a visitor card, but this machine for visitor cards only takes $5 bills or larger, so if you want to add $1 then you have to go downstairs. Sorry, I don't have change, you'll have to ask at the Circulation Desk. No, I can't just... more... - Meg VMeg
No, it's not actually out of paper, it just says that sometimes. - Meg VMeg
You want to print something, you say? Did you bring your student ID card? If you did you have to have money on it, because printing is 10 cents a page. If you did not, or you are a library guest, you have to buy a card. The card itself costs $1, then you have to put it back in the machine to put money on it. If you don't have bills (no it doesn't take change and it doesn't take credit cards), you can go to putmoneyonmycard.edu to apply a credit card payment to your student ID. - LibrarianOnTheLoose
Now go to one of the library computers. File-print, go to the terminal at the end of that bank over there, slide your card, select your print jobs and print. What? you wanted to print it off your laptop through the wireless? Sorry, no such luck. Or maybe you CAN do that now, I'll ask the IT guy. Oh you wanted to print color? Go back to the library computer, File-print-change printer.... more... - LibrarianOnTheLoose
You printed the wrong job or the formatting was jacked and printed weird or other printer screw up and you want your money back? I'll just print it for you and we'll call it even, ok? - LibrarianOnTheLoose

Anyone want to work in the library at the Yale Club here in Manhattan? Job description includes this gem: "MUST BE GUEST FOCUSED. SEEKING A POSITIVE, POLISHED, EXTRAVERTED, DYNAMIC, RESOURCEFUL LIBRARIAN." http://joblist.ala.org/modules...
(I stayed at the Yale Club once when I was in town for the IEEE Library Advisory Group. I do remember the library being quite nice & large.) - John Dupuis
Was the librarian there POLISHED? - Stephen Francoeur
What's all this about POLISH librarians? Isn't that discriminatory? - Steele Lawman
what does a resourceful librarian look like? they want indiana jones don't they? or noah wyle's librarian? - Sir Shuping is just sir
Isn't $60,000 in NYC not a whole lot? Also (especially after reading this bit: "Discreet, diplomatic and professional approach to the committees and governance at all times."), I think they want Bella da Costa Greene (aka Belle Greener): http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Marianne
"Salary: $60,000 to $60,000"...Looks like there is no wiggle room for negotiation... - Steven M. Cohen
"Fax to apply." Are several enormous red flags in a job ad enough of a deterrent? Because I could legit try to apply for this...I'm just unbelievably skeptical... - Lily
Maybe it's a gag. - Stephen Francoeur

Construction begins in my library today.
IMG_0889.jpg
here's hoping it's as non-loud and non-smelly as possible. and that the result is shiny, too. :) - Marianne
what are they building? - maʀtha
The writing center is moving into the library in August, so we're reconstructing most of the staff spaces on the main floor of the library to accommodate that. The temporary wall in the picture is surrounding the space that will become the writing center itself. - lris
Ooh, does that mean Carol Rutz will be moving in? (Probably not, but she's awesome.) - barbara fister
No, she runs the writing program. The writing center is a different thing run by the also-awesome Kathy Evertz. - lris
So what's moving into Scoville, then? - Lily
If I remember right, Scoville is getting emptied, renovated, and then maybe Admissions moves in? - lris
Best renovation wishes! - kaijsa
RepoRat
OH HEY look what's on the new book shelf at the SLIS library: http://www.worldcat.org/title... And look at that chapter written by our own Hedgehog Librarian!
(I wouldn't be surprised if there was more LSW involvement -- I had like five seconds to scan the ToC because conference call. If you're in the book too, speak up!) - RepoRat
Not LSWers (so far as I know), but Kim Duckett and Scott Warren are friends of mine from MFPOW -- super-smart people and all-around good eggs. - Catherine Pellegrino
I really enjoyed reading that book-totally full of smarties. Cheryl Ball (not a librarian) came to mpow to speak at a digital humanities symposium a couple years ago and I so thoroughly enjoyed talking to her and wish we worked at the same uni. - kaijsa
:D If you don't have a copy of the book but would like to read my chapter, the OA version is here http://hdl.handle.net/10027... This was a great process--the default was limited license to them. - Hedgehog
I love that the entire book, save one chapter, is available OA. So smart! - kaijsa
This tagline in INDIGO makes me laugh, though: "Items in INDIGO are protected by copyright, with all rights reserved, unless otherwise indicated." - Aaron the Librarian
Yeah..we're supposed to be able to mark stuff w/ a creative commons license but not sure if that has ever worked in my time there - Hedgehog from Android
Aaron the Librarian
2014 ALA Annual LSW Meetup Thread? (did I miss one that was already started?) Also: LSW Las Vegas Edition!
You did not! Also, YAY. I will be there from the 26th-30th (staying at the Paris), although I am currently not scheduling anything for suppertime on either the 26th or the 27th. And this is my "I finished my degree, work is not even being asked to pay for it, busman's vacation of author events and lounging about and having fun" ALA trip, so yeah, lots of free time for meetups. Can't wait to see y'all! - Marianne
I'll be there. First (real) ALA Conf for me! - copystar
Cool beanage, I'm at the Quad from Thursday eve to Tueday midnight. Crazy busy, but I'm getting my don't miss vendor events list set... oddly I'm not seeing very many invites this year... maybe I should go check my snailbox - Aaron the Librarian
Me! Dude, we totally need to talk :) - Hedgehog from Android
If we end up doing supper or lunch, and people want something fairly substantial, I recommend this joint: http://www.parislasvegas.com/restaur... - and not just because I'll be hanging out there a lot anyway. (Although, hm, they appear to have changed their menu a bit. o.O bah. restaurants must always serve the things I loved the last time I was there.) But really Vegas is utterly full of delicious foods... - Marianne
I would love to meet you peoples in person! I'll be there Thursday through Tuesday morning. - Regular Amanda
Thurs through tues for me. - ellbeecee from Android
i'm in ... thurs thru tues, perhaps at the quad, and perhaps at the flamingo (depending on funding and how adventurous i feel). - henry
Thursday thru Monday late for me! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Friday to Tuesday, with husband in tow - ~Courtney F
Bumpity bump... when would be a good time? - Regular Amanda
Friday night, after 7pm somewhere near Caesar's Palace? (hoping to make it to #alaplay too) http://ala14.ala.org/node... - Aaron the Librarian
I'd be free Saturday night after 8 or Sunday evening after 6. Would love to be able to make a meetup! - Lily
I'll be there Thursday-Tues, Philosopher in tow. I'll be at LITA Happy Hour Sunday --could meet up there or after that - Hedgehog
Meet up at the LITA thingy would work for me too? - Aaron the Librarian from Android
LITA happy hour is an open time for me too. (Friday isn't because I'll be at the Printz reception. Hey, anyone going to the Printz reception? I don't know of anyone i know that is...) The LITA thinger is at Kahunaville (treasure island). Wanna aim for a 6-6:30ish meetup time? If Sunday evening works for other people too? - Marianne
The LITA thing is Sunday? Sunday works for me. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan

MORE IMPORTANT. You can wing the text. just don't put much of it on your slide. - ♫Robot Chicken, Trainer♫
Excellent point, Maurice! I'm embracing that. :) Also, Soup approved my slides today, I think, so we can blame her if they're too text-heavy. ;) - L to tha B from Android

I realize that when I say I regularly help people get their first email address ever and someone replies, "I'm immensely grateful that people like you are patient enough to teach people to use email," they mean it as a compliment. But it never comes across that way.
could you say more? I'm pretty sure I don't have a handle on your ambivalence, and I'd like to. - RepoRat
It may well just be in my head, but it always sounds to me (perhaps because it is always said by people with more "important" jobs than mine) as though they're so glad they don't have to mess around with such menial tasks and can instead devote themselves to the life of the mind, or whatever. - laura x
In my experience, it's often said by people who see it, metaphorically, as a dirty job. - Katy S from iPhone
it irritates me when people say stuff similar to that because it makes me feel not like "hey, we all have different strengths and I'm glad for yours" but "ugh, I'm so glad SOMEONE will deal with these people so I don't have to" - and I react badly to the lumping in of all the people who need help into the stereotype of someone incompetent and stupid. but i know most of that reaction is me, not necessarily the speaker. - Marianne
ah. totally got it. thanks! - RepoRat
Yes, what Katy and Marianne said, precisely. - laura x
Sometimes I wonder the feeling you describe can be applied to most of librarianship (including academic). Eg Faculty have way more important things to do then to figure out how to pull out time cites/h-index, use citation managers, deposit pre and post prints , ... - aaron
It's sort of like me telling youth services library that I really admire their ability to do what they do. Because, HELL NO, I'm not doing. Like that? - Rochelle *boom* Hartman

If you wanted to hear me talk about something (or present a poster on something), what might that be? - lris
was the first about your instruction awesomeness? - jambina
I don't have that (but thank you), and no. :) The first was about simple and fun emergency planning. - lris
Something about citation? Or teaching with the new IL framework and threshold concepts? Or working through chronic illness? - lris
next ACRL is going to be wall-to-wall Threshold Concepts. I'd aim for something else. - Catherine Pellegrino

Aw, kaijsa, it's very kind of you to try to poach me. I'm not going anywhere for at least a few years, I think. At least right now, I feel like the most important thing I do in my job (both most valuable AND most important to me personally) is directly support our department's eighteen-or-so student workers, and there aren't a lot of librarian-level jobs where that can be the most... more... - Marianne

Why would you want to keep your copyrights when you’re not planning to republish? - http://pegasuslibrarian.com/2014...
I think you hit the high points. All I would add -- and I might not even add it; it's pretty cynical -- is that holding the copyright may protect you from your publisher doing something evil and/or stupid in your name. Examples include the Georgia State lawsuit, the Big E republishing articles in low-quality journals (legal! but evil), or this nonsense Kevin Smith pointed out about an unconscionable moral-rights clause. - RepoRat
Just commented (probably at too much length). Short version: The shoe's on the wrong foot, given that most magazines and most book publishers--that is, outlets that *pay* authors--don't actually demand transfer of copyright. - Walt Crawford
We should all start publishing our research in Analog. Then we'd retain our copyright, republication rights, AND we'd be paid $0.10 / word. - DJF from Android
I will write really really LONG pieces for Analog. - lris
It's up to a dime a word? That's progress. 'Course, they only publish one science article per issue (plus one...I'm not sure what to call The Alternate View, but "science" sounds wrong), but hey, that's ten a year. - Walt Crawford
That's actually a guess. In order to qualify as a pro market for SFWA, a publication needs to pay $0.05, going up to $0.06 on July 1 (http://www.sfwa.org/2013...). I like to think that the larger commercial publishers pay more. Analog actually pays "7 - 9 cents per word for short stories" (http://www.analogsf.com/informa...). - DJF
Man. 1995 called. It wants the F&SF website (http://www.sfsite.com/fsf/) back. But then, I guess that's what happens when your independent and not owned by one of the big conglomerates. - DJF
Yep. Pay rates for the "big three" SF magazines are pretty pathetic--not much more than they were 50 years ago, and less when inflation's included. But given the shrinking audiences and fading number of book ads, the three are barely surviving anyway. (Most magazines, with large circulations, pay a LOT more per word...) - Walt Crawford
I see that F&SF is publishing bimonthly now. That's sad, even if each issue is "double-sized". - DJF
[Iris: Sorry for the threadjack] F&SF made that decision a couple of years ago, as postage was what was killing them--in fact, each of their issues really is double-sized. Analog and Asimov's both publish 8 regular and two double issues each year; their double issues are much thicker but not quite double-sized. One odd effect: A lot more novellas get published, since they don't dominate an issue so much. (And only Analog still serializes novels.) - Walt Crawford
In case it's not obvious: I subscribe to all three--which isn't cheap these days--and have done for at least a decade. I've *always* subscribed to Asimov's, although I foolishly discarded my box of issues in a previous house move. (Now I drop issues off at the local library's Friends bookstore after reading, having been informed that SF magazines always sell, almost immediately.) - Walt Crawford
I subscribed to F&SF back in the late '80s, but dropped it when Rusch took over the editorship and the content became dramatically, and uniformly, darker than it had been before. - DJF
To go back to the original topic for a moment, I know for textbooks sometimes there is a clause that if you refuse to do a new edition the publisher can hire someone to do it. Of your book. With your name on it. - Rebecca Hedreen
Rusch has been gone for a while; Gordon Van Gelder owns and edits it now, and there's a fair amount of humor (and a seemingly endless supply of Albert E. Cowdrey stories, mostly Nawlins-based, which I love). Asimov's, to my mind, has the best and most wide-ranging fiction. - Walt Crawford
[I still love the time I had to pay $10 for permission to reprint a column for which I got paid $16.50. That's why I like to keep my copyrights.] - laura x
A rare true LOL moment just now. Thanks, laura. - Walt Crawford

Awwwww. A line from the comments section of a campus survey: "Iris Jastram is a gem. She is the most helpful, most upbeat, and most knowledgeable library liaison I could imagine, and I'm really glad I get to work with her!"
I wish I knew who said it. :) - lris
