I had forgotten how awful the ref desk is on Sundays. I have now thanked all the people who work this shift far more often than I do for handling it with such grace.

Too much to tweet. Suffice it to say the passive aggressive lady behind me is the worst person in the world.

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

Barbara Fister, "The Information Literacy Standards/Framework Debate," Library Babel Fish @insidehighered -
Pull quote: “From my perspective, the new Framework recalls the original spirit of the Standards and deepens our thinking about what students need to learn. They also move us beyond a sequence of components that looks suspiciously like a “how to write a paper in college” to concepts that are more challenging, sophisticated, and durable post-graduation.” - Stephen Francoeur

Current mood: reluctant to spend staff time digging up info so vendors can decide how to price their product to us.
If any of you have had any luck doing anything other than digging up all the info, I'd love to hear about it. - Rachel Walden
What happens if you "estimate"? #ididntsaythat - Meg VMeg
Not sure with this one. I just resent being asked to essentially do their market research for them. - Rachel Walden

People who order extra hot beverages at Starbucks.... What's going on there? Do you not like your tongue?
We should order Smiley an extra hot decaf sometime and watch him wig out. (Are you FB friends with Tracy B? She gets them extra hot- I got *$ for her once and she had more adjectives than I thought possible in a coffee order) - sglassme
Ordering a Flat White on a whim may be the whitest thing I've done all day.

I'm currently having my student workers research which ebook publishers have the highest restrictions on use (# pages to print) so that we can stop buying books from them. It feels good to wield this (extremely limited) consumer power.

Anybody have experience with Alma and Primo? Apparently we're moving to that.
Yup! There's several of us who either have moved or are in process. We've got a group here: - Kirsten
Welcome to the madness! - Jen
Oh, awesome, thank you! - Rachel Walden
We have it - I'm starting to learn all about it - copystar
We're considering it. - lris
We're in the middle of implementation with plans to go live in July. - Galadriel C.
We went live in December and are having ALL KINDS of problems. :-( - Megan loves summer
We rejected it. - JffKrlsn from Android
What did you select in its place? - lris
we're moving to it too - weelibrarian
We would have gone with it two years ago, but the cost was prohibitive. Keeping what we had for now. - Holly's favorite Anna
We went live with Alma/Primo at end of August and it's working well. Teething problems of course and minor bugs but very little of that is at all visible to the enduser. - Deborah Fitchett
Iris, in its place we selected nothing... we closed out our process and started over. Several months later we are recommending Sierra (more update than migration--we currently use Millennium and they didn't change much), and will be using EDS for the public interface; OPAC will still exist but be very much in the background, not easy to find. - JffKrlsn
Ah, ok. If you'd be willing to tell me more about what made you turn away, I would really like to hear it: ijastram at - lris

waking up to oatmeal in the crockpot = winning this morning.
i really need to do this more often. yum. - holly #ravingfangirl
Did you do regular oatmeal, or steel cut? - Pretty LaBelle
steel cut - holly #ravingfangirl
(sidenote: I have learned that oatmeal freezes really well. I have invested in a lot of single serving freezer containers for yummy oatmeal!) - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
good to know, rudy! - holly #ravingfangirl
Good reminder now that its cold - WarLord
Recipe? - Larua Boats from Android
i use Alton Brown's recipe as a starting point - holly #ravingfangirl
Thanks! - Larua Boats from Android
duh. here's my base version: this time i used 4 c. of almond/cocount milk (unsweetened) and 1/2 c. water - holly #ravingfangirl
Gonna try this overnight! I have dried apples and cranberries, plus some walnuts. - Larua Boats from Android
Very tasty! Hooray! :D *does the oatmeal dance* - Larua Boats

FriendFeed Bookmarklet Hosting: Micah W.'s ffbookmarklet v1.03 "Woot Tube" Release --  draggable version
Having trouble with the FF Bookmarklet in Chrome or other browsers? This is an updated version thanks to Micah and sizofroid. To make it easier to install, I'm now hosting it at my site, so you don't have to jump through hoops, you can just drag the updated version to your bookmark bar. - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
Yay! [update: uh, I don't see the actual bookmarklet on that page] - lris
Hmm, what browser are you using, Iris? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Chrome, Mac. Here's what I see - lris
Well that's weird. Chrome on Windows is working for me. When you go to the FF tools page, is the button there visible for you? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Yes it is - lris
Iris, have you disabled JavaScript by chance? I had a coworker test with Chrome on his Mac and it was working for him. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
No. And I did have adblocker running but I disabled it for that site. - lris
I love you. - Melly
I love you too, Melly! - Stephen Mack
Iris, hold on, gonna try something to fix it. - Stephen Mack
I'm running Chrome on Windows if that helps, FYI. - Melly
Iris, I changed how the image for the button was hosted. Did that fix it for you? - Stephen Mack
Yay! I see it! - lris
Yay! Hmm, you must have some pretty high levels of security set. All I changed was copying the image for the button from FF's server to mine. - Stephen Mack
I am not aware of extra high levels of security. Maybe I'm accidentally extremely careful. :) - lris
I'm sure it's no accident. :) - Stephen Mack
Hopefully no one else is having any trouble? - Stephen Mack
I added the older versions at the bottom, just in case there are any compatibility issues. - Stephen Mack
When I saw "draggable" I first thought it meant the popup can be dragged around within the page, to make it easier to select images that it would ordinarily be covering this old one: I am still using that one, but installed as a dedicated CustomButton. If you have the Firefox add-on installed, it's easy to install the button from here: What I would like to have is a combo of all the goodies into one awesome button. - April Russo
April, that's a cool idea. I couldn't get the one you linked to work for me, though. I wonder if we can beg Micah to add that functionality into his version. - Stephen Mack
I just did. ;) - April Russo
Ah! I don't know about CustomButton, though. What is taht? - Stephen Mack
Which one could you not get to work? The 1st or 2nd link? The 1st is instructions for modifying the official bookmarklet to use the drag & drop popup. The 2nd link requires the CustomButtons add-on installed in Firefox. You'd just click the link on my page to install the button, then right click a Firefox toolbar, go to... more... - April Russo
2nd link. But I see what you mean, it requires the add-on. Does it work on Chrome or IE, or just Firefox? - Stephen Mack
Compatibility: Mozilla Firefox 1.5+ SeaMonkey 2.0+ Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0+ Mozilla Sunbird 0.8-0.9 / Calendar 1.0pre KompoZer 0.8b1-0.8b3 Flock 0.7-1.5+ and Pale Moon (which is what I am using) - April Russo
Bump due to recent discussion. Micah, it'd be great to incorporate that feature from April's. Heard that at least one user is having trouble with the new bookmarklet. How's it working for others? (Works great for me! My default browser is Chrome.) - Stephen Mack
Working with Chrome, I'd say it works about 95% of the time really well. There are a couple sites where it just doesn't want to pull in the images, and sometimes the NY Times is tweaky, but both seem related to recent layout changes. - Jennifer Dittrich
Mine still doesn't work. I wonder if one of my plugins is breaking it. I've taken to browsing in Chrome and copying the URL over to IE when I want to post something to FF. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
It doesn't work for me: in Firefox (my default browser) it just brings up an empty box. As DB said, it might be a conflict with an extension, but I'm not sure which would be causing it. - John (bird whisperer)
First off, thank you for this work. I'll test it out in a bit. I have a lot of browsers to test in, and I use XMARKS so it should just pop to all my different browsers. - Eric - ill subliminal
Bump for Janet. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
please add this one on "firefox social" - orfe
Hero! - Antonio

I love the TLS. "A number of more colloquial phrasings are markedly English, which for American readers raises the unwelcome spectre of Constance Garnett."
From a different issue: "Yet for Rilke, even more than for, say, Wittgenstein, the struggle with onanism was a source of despair." - Steele Lawman

In case anyone is interested, the YorkU Magazine has quite a nice feature on academic blogging, in which I'm one of the people interviewed. Beware, there is a rather large and terrifying picture of me involved.
Nice sweater. - ellbeecee
Very nice picture. - bentley
Not scaryat all! and nice to have your work recognized this way. - barbara fister
It's a nice picture! - Christina Pikas
Thanks for the kind words. I think I was kind of expecting a little head shot tucked away in a corner somewhere. Though I guess I shouldn't be surprised as the photo shoot was with an outside professional and lasted nearly an hour. - John Dupuis
Looks good! Nice stare off to infinity. - Joe

So very excited about UConn Libraries' new website! Hats off to my colleagues that moved mountains to make this great event happen! New Site: | Old Site:
Very nice! (my brain is struggling like hell with this on the new site: "Big Data: The Libraries’ is home to the CT State Data Center, managing CT’s U.S. Census Bureau data." . I understand that technically, it's correct, but it feels wrong to me. :) ) - ellbeecee
My first thought was: smooth! It flows well - kudos to your colleagues. - Jen
