At least this mind-numbing work project can be done at home while watching tv, snuggling the cat, and sipping libations.
This makes me curious about the libations. - Julian

A sneak peak at our Libguides V2 with search modified for "bento style" (Summon API fuels catalogue, Articles and our suggestions boxes)
libguidesbento.png
Did you have to work with Springshare to alter the LibGuides search box functionality like that? - Stephen Francoeur
Nope. It's basically css/html you add to the search template "search page layout". The hard part was to manipulate the Summon API. Requires a server to host yr script (edited to avoid confusion "Server side") - my colleague used php. If you have questions, I can relay them to my colleague who did the work. I am sure he wouldnt mind sharing. We did ask Springshare about *their* API for... more... - aaron
When you say server-side, which server? and will it work through https? - Aaron the Librarian
As in you need to run an independent script on your own server. I think the scripts send your api key etc to the Summon server, get back results in json etc. Then parse back the results to appear on the Libguides Search page. I know he used and adapted this http://libx.lib.vt.edu/service... . - aaron
thanks for the clarification and the link *plots madly* - Aaron the Librarian
Wow. Thanks for this! I don't kno if we'll be able to do it here, but now it's a goal! - lris

Alert to SerSol 360 linker customers! No open URL links are visible in Google Scholar until next week, possibly as late as Tuesday or Wednesday!!!
"For any Summon clients who are using 360 Link please be aware that 360 Link links are currently not appearing in Google Scholar. Google alerted us late Monday that they had a problem retrieving our 360 Link holdings files. This issue was resolved yesterday, but due to the timing that Google uses to update holdings on their end, 360 Link customers will not be seeing links appearing in Google Scholar until Tuesday or Wednesday of next week. We apologize for the inconvenience this causes your customers and are working with Google to ensure this doesn’t happen again." - maʀtha

Marie -- the text Martha posted was sent to the Summon client listserv from someone at ProQuest. - Holly's favorite Anna
Yes. Got feedback on this early yesterday from many users. It's cold comfort to note we are not alone. Not sure if it is "good" though a small number of vendors are so dominant that when they go down they take out a fair number of the university libraries together. - aaron from Flucso

Codsignal request: I need to build a tool that will take textual information from a Google spreadsheet, reformat it and display it differently, probably in a document of some sort. I don't even know what keywords to type to find instructions for doing such a thing. Can you help me describe the task specifically enough ...
... so that I can find information or instructions? Essentially, I need to tell Google: "Take the data from row X of this sheet, reformat it according to the following rules, and send it into the following container." Ideally, there would be a mechanism whereby a non-technical user could specify what row(s) to use. - Catherine Pellegrino
Please note that I'm not asking you to SOLVE the problem (though if you know of a pre-packaged solution, that's great), I'm just trying to DESCRIBE the problem so that I can find solutions on my own. - Catherine Pellegrino
Similar to mail-merge functions in MS Excel? - lris
I searched "Google spreadsheet automated" and got this: https://developers.google.com/apps-sc... - Meg VMeg
Although maybe you actually want Fusion Tables: https://support.google.com/fusiont... (sorry, no search terms, I've just used it before) - Meg VMeg
I never managed to wrap my head around mail-merge, Iris, but I bet that's what I'm looking for. Meg, thank you for those links, and I will investigate them shortly! - Catherine Pellegrino
Ooh, I've been wanting something like this, too. I'm going to investigate Fusion Tables. Thanks for asking this question, Catherine. And for some cool stuff, Meg. - kaijsa
Just getting back to this now to do some more investigating. At first glance, it looks like Iris may have pegged it with mail-merge, and you can do mail-merge-like stuff with Google spreadsheets, e.g.: https://developers.google.com/apps-sc... However, it's possible that something involving scripts would work as well or better: https://developers.google.com/apps-sc... (found that page by following links from Meg's first link above). - Catherine Pellegrino
Ha! That's what I get for skimming: mail-merge uses scripts, so in point of fact, they're one and the same solution. - Catherine Pellegrino

Hi LSW. I've been asked to brainstorm "crazy, imaginative ideas" for my library. I have some, like taking over research management, but I'm looking for others. Help?
carrier pigeon document delivery (drones in bad weather) - lris
ooh i bet i could get a couple of drones. - kendrak
drop in sessions with city planners? scan-to-ILL services with transportation-related archives? - lris
Massive digitization and smart maps? - Hedgehog
virtual reality, context-specific help via app no matter where in the library you're standing - lris
project/grant management services - lris
RFID all patrons for assessment and service purposes (you said crazy...) - lris
Research impact tracking -- what they call CRIS services across the pond. - RepoRat
Printing that works all the time. - Steele Lawman from Android
Indestructible staplers - Mr. The Jason Fleming from Android
Vending machine for low cost office supplies! - lris
makerspace! I'd actually kind of love to know what that would look like in your context. - RepoRat
LEGOS. Must build important transportation models! - laura x
(I actually really like the idea of legos...) - lris
YES. LEGOS. - RepoRat
we already have the printing down and basically free office supplies. grant writing has come up, but we've not done much. - kendrak
We are getting legos for a finals week study break this year! - Freeda B.
Print-on-demand book machine (made of legos). After you RFID all patrons, RFID all books, so when patrons are looking for a book the phone buzzes when they are near. Put your campus museum and art galleries in the libraries. Have local artists paint beautiful murals on library walls. - Regular Amanda

I love copyright questions with short deadlines and no clear details... the history department wants to scan some images out of the university's elementary lab school's student yearbook which was published by the lab school PTO. These images are not attributed to anyone and are from 2011. From whom does the department request rights/permissions?
This will be in a book published by the history department / "shippensburg university press" (which is not a "real" university press but which has been used as publisher for several previous publications) not that this side comment is really relevant to the original question ;) - Aaron the Librarian
so is or isn't the "elementary lab school" part of the university? - RepoRat
The PTO should have some record of the contract they signed with the photographer to say whether the images belong to the PTO or to the photographer. If they don't, then I think the PTO has the copyright? works for hire? - lris
in 2011, the year of the yearbook in question, yes, the lab school was part of the university - but also was part of the local school district. "Contract with the photographer" *holding onto desk while I catch my breath after laugh-snorting almost to death* ... My inclination was to suggest the lab school secretary as a resource for identifying the photographer and making direct contact (odds are it was one of my kids' friends' parent(s)). But it (as every republisher said ever) should be easier than this! - Aaron the Librarian
tl;dr "don't just take the image and publish it" is correct and "get the photographer's permission, or the labschool/university's permission" is the only legitimate route, right? - Aaron the Librarian
that's how i see it, yup. someone holds the rights to the image. (let alone the privacy concerns about pix of kids...) - jambina
Having not seen the images in question, no idea if there are kids included... but yes, since the younger kids would still be students in the district (assuming they didn't move away) that's another nice wrinkle (though, iirc, when I was a parent at the school I had to sign a waiver expressly okaying or denying the presence of my kid(s) in pictures - we said "yes, it's fine to take pix of our kids") - Aaron the Librarian

This would be a good article - class of 2005 ten years on. We all came into it right at the point where Web 2.0 started to get big and the idea of user generate content on the web (and the web itself and thus information) became much more prevalent and accessible. iPods existed, but not smart phones, really. No kindles. If someone said App I'd think they were trying to be cool in saying Apple. - Sarah G.
December 1999. I'm a 20th century librarian! - Stephen Francoeur
Obviously, I am not a librarian. "Masters of Library Sciences" (or whatever MLS stands for in this case) was the 3rd thing that came to mind when I saw the acronym. Major League Soccer was the first (which made absolutely no sense), and then the usage of MLS within real estate was the second (no idea what it stands for in that usage, though). - COMPLICATED MR.

Public Viewing Rights & Good Faith Efforts: We are in the starting phase of policymaking around poublic viewing rights. Troublemaker that I am, I want to define "good faith effort" and set in policy that after the defined good faith effort we will generally advise: while the rights have not been acquired, you should be okay publicly showing...
at some point we have to draw a line and move - am I way out of line? Do you have examples of good policies I can draft from? thanks! - Aaron the Librarian
bumpity? - Aaron the Librarian
Can you explain a little more? Our university is covered, at least mostly, I think, but a license that the office of student affairs handles - ~Courtney F
Yeah, I don't understand. Do you mean that they'd be showing (potentially/obviously) orphan works? Or that the rightsholders of clearly copyrighted movies mightn't get back to them in a timely way? - Meg VMeg
^^^ yes this - lris from Android
I have no actual examples (and filing cabinet contents were aggressively deselected with prejudice) but basically we're trying to document our formerly black-box public viewing rights policy. We use several vendors to do public viewing rights (I can find out which if you like) but occasionally (anectotally 3-5 (out of ~50) in last 5 years) we cannot acquire rights through "the usual... more... - Aaron the Librarian

Even though it's only smart under WiFi, I'm really really liking having a smart phone.
which reminds me, I should really ask the repair folks where the heck my old iTouch is. - RepoRat
Uh, I'm confused: why is it only smart under wifi? I thought the big advantage of a smartphone was that you didn't have to be in range of wifi? - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod
Because I can have it for $10/month if it relies on WiFi. If I travel I'll bump it up to true smartphone status. - lris from Android

Spending my morning with OCLC folks. What do I want to know about WorldShare?
How do you define "share" and "world"? - barbara fister
Existential barbara. - lris
One sure-fire way to lose credibility with instruction librarians is to start skipping "in the interest of time" and talking about "running way behind" half an hour into a 3-hour presentation. PLAN AHEAD. - lris
I think simply doing a three-hour presentation is a way to lose credibility with me. If you can't show me what I need to know in 30 minutes, you are wasting my time. - Steele Lawman
For an entire ILS? 30 minutes might be a wee bit quick. - Kirsten
For something as big as an ILS, you should schedule several shorter modules that librarians/staff can come to without attending the whole thing. (I care that the cataloging module works well, but don't need the details, for example). And stick to the schedule and build in short breaks between presentations. We got this format for Sierra, and it worked well. - kaijsa
Yeah, I guess I just care about the public-facing stuff. 30 min seems like plenty. (Note: This is why I'm not allowed to make decisions.) - Steele Lawman
I'm sorry I missed this. And yeah, OCLC blows at presentations on their products. - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
You want to have the authority control of the base record(s) and who has right sto edit what in the record clearly explained... well, *I* would want this because I have yet to actually hear the whole "anyone can edit the base record" rumour invalidated... Also, WoldShare is the closest thing I've seen to what my brain teels me I think I want to see in an ILS -- but like all library software there are bits of magic here and there which defy logic and I want to know more - Aaron the Librarian
OCLC blows at product development. Period. - Holly's favorite Anna

So watched the original The Pink Panther with the boys. A structural mess, but it has moments.

Help! Suppose I wanted to create a digital archive that included photographs of people in another culture. Suppose I went out and took their pictures as they farmed their land or something (they know I'm taking the picture). At what point do I need legal waivers?
From what I can tell so far, I'm ok if I don't use the person's likeness to promote anything. But IANAL - lris
Knowing you, you would probably like a link to actual laws. I don't have that, but this page sums things up pretty well in a poorly-cited kind of way: https://www.rocketlawyer.com/article... When you say "another culture," though, I wonder about other countries' laws regarding privacy. - Steele Lawman
and different cultures may oppose the very taking of the photo, etc. (not sure where you guys are with moral rights in the US, but this would fall under it in a lot of ways). - jambina
I'm totally going to regret trying to find Burmese privacy laws, aren't I.... - lris
oh my yes - jambina
is this for you, or a student? If a student, their prof might have some things to say about cultural rights practices, aside from law. Especially if this is anthropology. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan from YouFeed
My understanding is that "moral rights" aren't part of US law, and people in public have no expectation of privacy. - Steele Lawman
i think it might also depend on what you were going to do with the images after they went into the archive. #NotAnArchivist - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
