Ran into a faculty member on the train last night who had been reading a New Yorker article (this one - http://www.newyorker.com/magazin... ) about permanently saving things online. She was fascinated by the Internet Archive along with http://perma.cc/ - which is new to me (that doesn't mean I didn't just miss conversations ...
...about it before. I have no questions, really. It was just nice to see one of the business faculty all excited about this. :) - ellbeecee
It's a nice article to share with folks for whom the idea of link rot and reference rot is a new thing. - Stephen Francoeur

Me, at end of class: "Any further questions? Anything you have always wanted to know about librarians but were afraid to ask?"
Student: "Do you spawn?" - Steele Lawman
March of the Librarians video time! - RepoRat
Me: "It's sexual reproduction, but you aren't guaranteed to give birth to another librarian. Anyone else?" - Steele Lawman
I want to like this about five more times. - Catherine Pellegrino
Like salmon returning to the stream in which they were hatched, the intrepid librarian returns to the top floor of of the academic library where their librarians dreams were hatched.... (Basement of public library or nook in school library, etc, as appropriate.) - John Dupuis
LOL - lris
That is excellent. Nice footwork - Aaron the Librarian
I'm stealing this for my class on Monday. - Lily
If you bring up the sexual reproduction part yourself, it might be awkward. - Steele Lawman
"Why are you all so awkward?" - Lily
nice. - YvonneM
a student once asked me why so many librarians wear cardigans. he said he'd always wanted to ask that. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
How did you answer? Something like "Concealed carry?" - Steele Lawman

This Baghdatis Dimitrov match has been fantastic. Hoping Marcos has a little extra gas left on the tank. #AusOpen

My grandfather marched to Selma with Dr King. I'm glad and proud that he did, and I also wish things were better now than they are.
Wow. What a legacy! - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Does he have photos? - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Not that I know of. He just sent us a slightly abridged transcript of a long letter he wrote to his parents just after having completed the march. It ends "I was ashamed for America on Tuesday, ashamed that it was necessary to march in protest against police brutality and on behalf of civil rights. But frightening as it was, there is no place on God’s green earth that I would have traded for the privilege of being in the march in Selma, Alabama." - lris
That is fantastic! Again, what a legacy! - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Has he seen the movie? - MoTO: #TeamMarina
That is something to be proud of. - Eric - ill subliminal
Also, things are better than they were. What's frustrating is that our culture can't seem to recognize that we have so far to go. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Or that it's so important to our maturation and survival. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
I don't know if he's seen the movie. And your last comment reminds me of another passage in Papa's letter where he talks about realizing that there is "profound sense" to the statement that "the Negro will give America back her soul" (in 1960s language) because of the way people were talking about why they were involved in the march. I think he was talking about exactly that maturation and survival. - lris
Wow. what an incredible connection. - laura x from iPhone

I read this email subject so wrong. My brain went to a "Miss RUSA" contest at Midwinter and instead of a swimsuit competition would there be a cardigan and pencil-bun?

I went the exact same way - Soup in a TARDIS
Yep - Meg VMeg
I saw the *exact* same thing! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Well now you need to make that happen. - Marie
For the talent portion...? - Julian
Hopefully more than a pencil and cardigan... - Aaron the Librarian from Android
Julian: shelf reading? - ellbeecee

Is there also a Mr RUSA contest? Cardigan and bow tie competition? - John Dupuis

Oh ho! It's out! Here's the big deal we're cancelling. http://libraries.calstate.edu/equitab...
This was the publisher that tried to force us to sub to their ebooks in order to keep our current deal. Also, their idea of when a title could be cancelled is insane. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
Just sent this to my head of collections. - Hedgehog
This is the first US consortium I've seen announcing a big Big Deal cancellation. Did I miss anything, or are y'all pioneers? - RepoRat
Also sent to mine.... - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Wow. Thanks for posting. Forcing subs to e-books to keep journal deal is indeed insane. - Galadriel C.
Head of CollDev sent it out to our faculty this morning - Hedgehog
With that budget cut, I imagine big deals are on the table? - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
"the CSU libraries did not find the value of the additional content compelling" - Marie
Shared with our collection development librarian. - ellbeecee
shared with our peeps too - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Good for you for challenging the Big Deal. - maʀtha

I'll be curious to see how many campuses subscribe to Wiley packages on their own (I'm also at a CSU library and we've decided not to subscribe to any Wiley packages until the system can re-negotiate something). - Laura Krier
From my small sample of 4 people I've happened to talk to, no one is taking a package, just individual subs. That's at least 2 of 3 biggest ones, though. Can't wait for the report from EAR next week. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl

Random poking up of the head: I've been missing from the librarian interwebs for a while due to life stuff and figuring out my next step. Many of you already know, but starting in January I will be the new Associate Dean for Learning Resources in charge of the medical library and biomedical communications at ETSU in Johnson City, TN.
Congrats! - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Yay and hi again! Sounds like a great move -- wishing you the best! - RepoRat
hooray hooray hooray! You deserve the change, and you will be awesome. - Jenica
Congratulations! - bentley
congrats! Awesome news! - ellbeecee
awesome sauce - ♫Maurice the Trainer♫
Thanks all! :) I'm pretty excited. In addition to jobby goodness, I'll be about an hour from where I grew up/where my parents still live, and close to the mountains again. - Rachel Walden
Congrats! - John Dupuis
Tell us about the biomedical communications part. I'm curious. - maʀtha
Congratulations! - Jen
Right now, biomedical communications is a digital design and print shop housed inside the medical library. They design & print large-scale items like research posters (including the fabric ones!). They do other signs, displays, table tents, etc. One project they did was to work with a pediatrician to produce a book for his patients. I think there's actually a lot of potential there re:... more... - Rachel Walden
that sounds SO exciting, Rachel. - Jenica
that is cool! - RepoRat
That's awesome! Congratulations on the new gig and best wishes for it to be a great experience! - kaijsa

LSW's The Librarians comment thread
He's the Doctor! EDIT: really, he's the Eighth Doctor as seen in The Night of the Doctor, right? - bentley
My refrigerator is the opposite of that. - Katy S
He's yelling in the library. I don't think he's supposed to yell in the library. - Katy S
I want that office. - bentley
Just one librarian? Seems they've heard about the job market. - Katy S
wonder if he's full time with benefits? - ellbeecee
He can't find a book? Librarian, heal thyself! - Katy S
he's killing librarians? totally almost what my NaNo plot started with if I'd tried this year. - ellbeecee
I really think he's channeling Paul McGann. - bentley
Does that room qualify as a maker station/space? - Katy S
They referenced my .sig file! "Be safe, don't get killed, save your receipts." - bentley
Talk about rolling compact stacks! - Katy S
There's the catalog you were looking for, Katy S. - bentley
So, for episode 2 we're injecting a bit of slapstick. - bentley
I missed a bit. I might have to catch this again later. - Katy S
They're two separate episodes, each for one hour. - bentley
So, I missed the end of one and the beginning of the other? Perfect. - Katy S
If I'm interpreting this correctly, they're basically making the librarians all men? Or will she still stick around? (Like I said, I missed a bit.) - Katy S
She's in the advertising graphics, so I assume she's staying. - bentley
Got it! - Katy S
#othersideoftheworld a) Is this a new series or something? b) Is it worth going to effort to acquire by means that shall not be specified? - Deborah Fitchett
a) Yes. b) as yet to be determined. - Katy S
They just started showing the two-parter again. - bentley
Thanks, I missed it earlier, but I'm recording now. - Greg GuitarBuster
Both parts will air again Friday at 8pm (EST) on the CW. #nocable - Laurie Boots from Android
Yay! - bentley
I kept thinking I had seen Cassandra (one of the new Librarians) in something and she kept reminding me of Amy Acker but I knew that wasn't it. And now I do know where I've seen her before -- she was Claudia, in Relic Hunter https://www.youtube.com/watch... -- but she doesn't remind me of Claudia at all. Weird. - bentley
Caught the first episode last night on DSTV (South Africa's cable network) .... fun. There is a FB page called The Librarians - apparently the first episode is free for download on itunes (guess in the US store only) - Ingrid Thomson
Not to be confused with the Australian series "The Librarians" http://www.imdb.com/title... - Ingrid Thomson
They weren't on iTunes when I looked yesterday but they're there now. First ep free, second ep $2.99. - bentley
Much better than the movies. But then, there's less Noah Wylie and more Rebecca Romijn. - DJF from Android
But it does feel like, "OK, Warehouse 13 had been cancelled, so let's revive this thing and capitalize on the existing market." - DJF from Android
I describe Warehouse 13 as Friday the Thirteenth The Series but without the curses. (I love both shows.) - bentley
Deborah, according to the podcast entry for an interview with one of the series' writers, they're going to be debuting worldwide via streaming this week: http://smartbitchestrashybooks.com/podcast... - Katie
well, it says the show is debuting worldwide "within days", but it doesn't say anything about streaming. In the states, you have to be a cable subscriber to log in to the TNT streaming site, and the Canadian station showing it, Space, isn't making it available for streaming. Not yet, at least. - DJF
@bently - that bugged the boyfriend too - so we looked it up and she was also the girlfriend on Kick Ass 2 - which is where he remembered her from. - WebGoddess
@Deborah: Tried to DM you some info that shall not be specified. :-) - bentley
Also, the Asian guy with the Australian accent needs to actually talk more. - DJF from Android
So is John Laroquette a real part of this series or just trivial window-dressing? (Trying to decide whether to watch it Friday on The CW.) - Walt Crawford
John Laroquette will be playing the role of Giles from Buffy The Vampire Slayer. - ♫Maurice the Trainer♫
He doesn't appear at all until the second hour of the pilot - DJF from Android
p.s. the episodes on itunes (not sure about amazon) will all be extended versions with additional footage. - holly #ravingfangirl
Finally getting to watch! - Laurie Boots from Android
So: we watched both hours on The CW. Enjoyed it quite a bit. But it's not clear when/whether the rest of the series will air on The CW...and no, we're not going to double our cable bill so we get TNT. At worst, I suppose, we wait for DVDs to come out. (Streaming's not an option: our "broad"band isn't broad enough.) - Walt Crawford
And speaking of Buffy...or, rather, Angel...it took us about a minute to place the art-historian new librarian as an evil lawyer at Wolfram & Hart. So this time he's trying to fight *against* evil magic. Nice change of pace. - Walt Crawford

All summer, I *knew* intellectually that I'd finished my degree, and that I wouldn't have to do the school/work two-step this fall, for the first time in 3 years - but it wasn't until I was walking home tonight, at the end of the first day of the academic year where I work, that I really FELT IT down to my bones.... I AM FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I had so much free time this weekend! I had so much free time *today*! I was happy and interested and intellectually engaged at work all day, never overwhelmed or anxious at how few brain cells I had left (even though it was a crummy day physically, and involved a lot of saving my strength - but it didn't seep over into panic - BECAUSE THERE IS NOTHING TO PANIC ABOUT)!

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
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
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
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

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
