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!"

The hilarity of this post crept up on me slowly, but was TOTALLY worth it. - lris
I dunno, Iris -- "slipping through your fingers like a bunch of ghost dicks" appears in the first paragraph. - Jason P
I totally related to all of this!!!!! - Melly - #TeamMarina
I'm a little disappointed that banana clips didn't make an appearance in this piece, but otherwise it was spot-on. :) - Catherine Pellegrino
It was the end of an era when I pitched all my remaining banana clips. I seriously wore those from middle school to age 40. - RepoRat
I think I've gotten rid of all my scrunchies, but I still have one or two of those .... horizontal clip-ponytail thingamabobs ... floating around somewhere. - Catherine Pellegrino
I still have some lovely hair clips that I should probably donate to the SLIS silent auction. Unless someone here wants them, sight unseen? - RepoRat
I have never owned a banana clip. When my hair was long enough, I was actually able to wind it in to a self-tied bun, which was my default, as it was much easier than, say, brushing it. - laura x
I was queen of pencil buns in college. I used to put an extra pencil or two in there because people would pull them out to take notes in choir. It was always entertaining when they'd try to figure out what was extra and what was the actual anchor pencil - Hedgehog
When my hair was long, I'd do a single French braid, right down the back. Easy-peasy. But I always needed at least two pencils to do a bun. - Kirsten
I used to have big, curly hair and I broke a banana clip once. It would not contain my follicular fabulousness. - YvonneM
Okay, that was funny. - Jenny H. from Android
I always wanted to be able to do the pencil bun thing. Alas, I never had the hair for it. - YvonneM
^ Same! In fact, I can't do any kind of decent bun or up-do without 100 pins and a can of spray. My hair is fine and really slippery. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Melly, you must wait for dirty hair to have success. I found the blend is dirty hair and then the dry shampoo for the root area. - Janet
I've still never tried dry shampoo. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Derrick
Of course the net on campus dies right when I begin showing a class how to use the databases. Of course.
Congratulations. You're officially a librarian. - DJF
I sho nuff started using the dry erase markers and white board, though. - Derrick
Could have been worse. There's a war story here at MPOW about the librarian who was giving a database class and the vendor changed the user interface for the database right in the middle of her class. - DJF
Oh damn. - Derrick
(Is this where I say "I'm old enough to remember preparing powerpoints with screenshots for every instruction session, just for this eventuality"?) anyway, D, I'm sure you handled it with aplomb. - Catherine Pellegrino
Yeah, PubMed did that to a colleague of mine a couple years ago (interface update during class) - Hedgehog
I was able to sketch things out. This is a college writing class (think Eng 101) but the professor does everything with a true crime slant to it, so researching how to find things in anthologies, longform journalism on things like Jon Benet, Leopold and Loeb, OJ, etc. and how it was covered in the media and press. - Derrick
Training achievement unlocked! - ♫Robot Chicken, Trainer♫
level up. - Joe
And we're done. It came back up maybe halfway through the class and a few students had questions in their "on their own" time for the rest of the session. Oof. - Derrick

Here's a funny story from my morning:
office admin assistant emails me with 2 questions: do I want to sit in on a webinar that might pertain to me? and can I suggest a space in the library where 5-10 people could watch together?' - lris
I email back: yes, and yes. - lris
Email from completely different office head saying: "Hey all, there's this great webinar. Iris will be coordinating logistics" - lris
I email back: ..... - lris
That office head emails first office head: "Wait, who's coordinating? Iris says she isn't?" - lris
First office head says "Well, we'll need her to set up for the webinar and get video and sound going and and and" - lris
First office's admin assistant finally pipes up: "No, that's me. Iris isn't coordinating it, just me." WHEW - lris
The end. - lris
ack! - DJF
I love that they knew "...." = "Iris is not coordinating" - Aaron the Librarian

Cracking up because one of my students used the greeting "Hell Professor" in a recent email to me. I'll assume it was a typo.
Fond memories of when my students called me "Devil Teacher". (In my case I was teaching ESOL to Korean kids and it was a bilingual pun.) - Deborah Fitchett

Standing desk unit - maʀtha
Comfy chair - maʀtha
Lots of lights so I don't have to use the Overhead Ceiling Light of Doom - maʀtha
Lots of open space, room to have a little meeting - maʀtha
No stacks of papers anywhere! I have a box of papers to file, but I got rid of a ton of paper. Exactly 1 ton. Metric. - maʀtha
Oh, and the cleaning person gave me a brand new recycling box for the occasion. - maʀtha
comfy, well-lit reading chair! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
yes! - maʀtha
I had our custodian take 2/3 of the bulbs out of my Overhead Ceiling Lights of Doom. (I love that.) Much better. Really, 4 sets of 3 florescent tubes in a room about 10'x10'? I've been thinking of stealing a comfy chair from the public areas for years! - Rebecca Hedreen
Word is that facilities is going to replace all the soft furniture soon anyway, so I hopefully haven't done anything too terribly naughty. It was just sitting in a hallway in an odd place. * looks innocent* - maʀtha
Lurve the standing desk!!! - Megan loves summer

And she drinks Budweiser! - Steven M. Cohen
only with you, Steven. - jambina
Pinch her to make sure she is real Marie. - ♫Robot Chicken, Trainer♫
Fuck that shit. PBR! - Joe
Derrick
Teaching two classes today, 1) a basic comm. writing class and 2) a research comm. incorporating data and demographics, etc. Was freaked out about the research class but knew it was the second and later class. Went to the first class...IT WAS THE RESEARCH CLASS. Welp. Recovered nicely and handled it well though I was thrown off.
And after the class, two students came up to me and wanted to talk about becoming a librarian so we're grabbing coffee next week. "Librarians are so good about thinking on their feet!" - Derrick
Awesome - Shevonne
I also prepped by learning how to work with Simmons and they were like, *shrug* over Simmons, haha. - Derrick
Simmons sucks. :) (despite the smiley, I'm not kidding on that. I hate that thing and I'm so glad we don't have it.) - ellbeecee
Simmons is o_O. I spent several hours last week and this, working on, for example, crosstabbing males, 21-34, who drink Gatorade, and play video games between 11pm and 6am and the likelihood of whether they use iPhone or Android mobile devices. x_x - Derrick

ADA compliance that doesn't require the disabled person to jump through hoops to force that compliance would be a welcome change #exhausting
It took 10 years of work to get the sidewalks on our street to be fixed so the boy across the street could use them with his electric cart. They got fixed right after he passed. :( - Steve C Team Marina

Marianne
I taught a 3 hour class tonight, and it went really well. Despite their wariness and disengagement when they walked in, every single one of the 22 high school students left with multiple articles they'd found on their own, and wanted to read for their research papers, and I use "wanted" deliberately.
Guess I wasn't nearly as far away from being able to do that as I thought I was .... - Marianne
Yay! I'm not surprised you could do that, but I'm glad you proved it to yourself. - Steele Lawman

On this day, 5th of March 2014, for the first time, I deliberately crafted an entire proposal around the strategic planning initiatives it would support (and left out every other argument I might care to make). All By Myself. It feels like a career milestone.
(some other, wiser people will have a look at it before I do anything with it. but i feel quite competent at the moment. usually I just feel like I am good at stuff because it is stuff I like. This is something quite different.) - Marianne

If I never had to explain how to use the print release system to anyone ever again, maybe I would be a happier person.
I feel your pain. *and* we've just changed it...again. - Pete : Team Marina
We got rid of public printing, so instead of explaining the multi-step process, we get to explain that there is no printing for non-students. :( - kaijsa

Thank you, everyone! So far I've painted my nails an outrageous color, and emailed the chair of the Rank & Tenure committee about an issue with the procedure for external reviewers that I think could be changed to make the process work better. Nobody parties like a tenured librarian, I tell you what. - Catherine Pellegrino
Ten Things To Do After You Get Tenure: http://hopejahrensurecanwrite.com/2013... - John Dupuis
Holy crap, John, that is an awesome post! Thank you for linking it. - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod
There's a faculty member here that loudly proclaims that if you don't do something once a year that would get you fired in (X repressive regime), you don't deserve tenure. Perhaps too high a bar to be taken literally, but I get where she's coming from. And yes, she is pretty damn outspoken. - John Dupuis
I followed her briefly on Twitter but it was too much of a firehose. I'm adding her blog to my reader, though. - Catherine Pellegrino
