Help with converting from PDF to Word or text? I found a 2002 pathfinder from MPOW online elsewhere and I'm trying to update it. No one here has the file. When I open the PDF with Word, Word says it has converted it but most of the file has been converted into page images. Can anyone help? I need something editable.
I know half of it is out of date, but half is not, and I need to finish it this month, so I'd rather not retype. - Betsy
does anybody have Acrobat Pro kicking around? - RepoRat
Not in my department. I don't know much of anyone at the other departments. It's a big place, and I'm new. - Betsy
You'll need to put it through OCR to make it editable. PDF is just a page image unless there's OCR information behind it. I would suggest contacting your IT department to see if there's a place on campus that has Acrobat Pro or something similar installed because that'll have the capabilities you need. Otherwise there are some online services you can find, but I don't know enough about them to make a recommendation. - lris
Well, there's another way to create a textful PDF, which is to build it from a textful document rather than from images. When I opened the document and did a select-all and copy, the text pasted into TextWrangler just fine. So I do think Acrobat Pro could help here. - RepoRat
I posted it for you - Acrobat pro. - Julie Kane
Right now, I'm doing copy/paste, then removing all the extraneous paragraph marks that used to be line breaks, then turning on spell-check so I can find the odd pasting errors; e.g., COlLECTION. - Betsy

Older III OPAC due to lose functionality on Google Chrome Browser - http://pegasuslibrarian.com/2014...
So their "Library Future" is making you all buy new OPACs? - Hedgehog

Ereserves and copyright: So, if we own a print copy of a book, what's the current legal way for a library to do an online copy of a chapter for students in a course? Are we supposed to pay clearance fees? Can we scan our chapter and put it in the Moodle course shell? Do we have to put it on reserve physically?
Fair use. You can scan a chapter. - lris
What lris said. The GSU decision covers you pretty decently well for a single chapter, at present. (It is under appeal, of course, but chances that a publisher is gonna sue before that's resolved are pretty minimal, pragmatically speaking.) Definitely put it somewhere it's restricted only to students in the course. Physical reserve is optional, but not the world's worst idea either. - RepoRat
thank you! Some of our folks are very, very conservative about copyright, and I'm very very liberal, so a fact checking is appreciated. - Jenica
One chapter is fine. Two chapters or more is under debate. (Some libraries do it, some won't.) Also under question is the 10% vs 20% of a book. There are books with 39 or 50+ chapters. Why couldn't one place 3 or 5 chapters on reserve if it is less than the 10% (or 20%) threshold? Then there are the questions about scanning an appendix or supplemental material that really isn't a... more... - Joe
Also, for us ('cause, you know, GSU), the faculty member placing the request must complete the USG Fair Use checklist - http://www.usg.edu/copyrig... - ellbeecee

Uh... so this is bad. Email from our security admin says:
2) By Thanksgiving 2014, bridge.carleton.edu as it currently stands will begin showing subtle "not fully secure" indications on Chrome browsers. By Spring 2015, bridge.carleton.edu will be effectively unusable in Chrome. This is because it is running on an obsolete operating system for which security updates were terminated in February 2012. It will continue to be usable in other major browsers until 2016. - lris
"Bridge" is our III opac - lris
that is DEFINITELY bad. That is "kick the crap out of III until they fix it" bad. Do y'all even get security OS updates? - RepoRat
if it's an OS+ILS problem, Martha, it shouldn't affect you. - RepoRat
Hmmm. I wonder what OS our III server is running on. - Joe
Ok, more information. This will affect anyone trying to log into the opac, not just view the opac. So that's good-ish. We don't have III's brand new ILS, and I imagine that they're unwillingness to upgrade past Red Hat 4 lies in their desire for everyone to buy their new ILS. Google Chrome is taking the lead in forcing users to use secure websites, and non-modern server OSes just won't... more... - lris

I want my students to share their work library with me, whatever tool they use. But I can't really do that if they use Mendeley, can I?
They can either make a shared library that you can see, or they can export items in their library to a RIS file. - lris
My Mendeley shared library assumptions/questions: if each person gets 1 shared library, and 4 share with me, can that happen? Am I allowed to be in 4 shared libraries? And, if I make them share with me, will that use up all their shared libraries forever? - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
The number of free shared libraries you have on your account kind of depends on when you opened your account in the first place. My coworker has 4, I have 3. You wouldn't be able to have more than your account limit's worth of students share with you. When they're done with this work, they can always delete a shared library and make a different one to share with other people. - lris
You can be in as many shared libraries as you want. You only get to own one. - DJF from Android
Thanks all, I didn't know those details! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan

Apparently this article thinks that I'm male (refers to me by name and by "he"). I cannot verify because I don't have access, but would love to know the context http://lis.sagepub.com/content...
It is not clear when and by whom the term Library 3.0 was actually coined. The authors noted that the earliest mention of the term, though nominally, was in the late 2006 (Casey, 2006) and early 2007 (Herring, 2007). However, they also observed that the first significant consideration of the concept seems to be in 2008 on a blog, Pegasus Librarian,4 by Iris Jastram (2008). Jastram... more... - Christina Pikas

Once I've had to show up. Once just called in. Once was breastfeeding. (And how awesome is it that they had that exemption!) - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
I'd tell you, but then I'm afraid I'd jinx it. *whispers* (zero) - lris
In Virginia, I had to show up once a week for the duration (I forget how long), but I was able to beg off after three weeks because I was moving out of state. In Illinois, Cook County gave me a postponement because I was going to be out of town, then another postponement because I was going to be out of the country, and I'm still waiting for them to call again even though it's been years. - Betsy
Twice that I can remember. Happened earlier this year & got exemption because I'm self employed. - Corinne L
At least six. Served the first two times. Not needed/web checking the next three times. Not needed, but had to spend a morning in the waiting room this time. (There may have been other "not needed" cases.) - Walt Crawford

About ten. I've never been picked. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
6 or 7 times. I've called in most times and not been selected (actually went to the physical location once), but twice now I've pleaded out because of medical issues that would make it physically hard to have the stamina to be on a jury. - Spidra Webster
Three. I got out of two because I was in my third trimester of pregnancy. The third I showed up for (Clark County, Nevada- bigtime fun), but the defendant plead while I was waiting, so that was that. - Jenny H. from Android
Once. I showed up and got routed to a few different buildings before being excused. I was really looking forward to serving too! - Brian Johns
Oh, and I only went downtown four times. The first time I was 19 & was hoping I'd get picked to serve. The other times I was all, please don't pick me, you ain't gon pay me enough to miss work! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Never and I've always been a little disappointed by that. - joey

Further to the EBL / Ebrary books-missing-bits thread: here is a screenshot of an EBL book from Duke UP that was in our PDA catalogue (now removed so that it's not accidentally purchased).
