Cleaning up around the service desks while I work the closing shift. Found the drawer for a cash register we don't even have anymore.
It had $200 of starting cash, right? - Joe - Systems Analyst

Screw you, buzzfeed & upworthy. How do you know what I won’t believe?
Here's a start: Don't believe that buzzfeed or upworthy are worth visiting. You can probably add Business Insider and HuffPo to that list. - Walt Crawford
You won't believe what Upworthy and Buzzfeed think you won't believe. Click now to find out! - Laura Norvig

Sometimes I feel a bit estranged from our profession, but then I encounter those people who try to control or intimidate other people by withholding or squelching information and I get all Conan the Librarian again.
video, pls - maʀtha
dadandahalf called me late last night, after I'd gone to bed, but the sentiment and sweetness in his voice was maybe the best gift ever.
Joe - Systems Analyst
I want to thank jambina and many others in the LSW for giving me the inspiration and encouragement to initiate the startup of the Scholarly Communication Section of the Academic Division of SLA. We now have a basic webpage and twitter account. and
Jeez my pic is huge on the libguide. Think I will edit that to make it less huge. - Joe - Systems Analyst

I am also tempted to rejoin SLA after many years. - John Dupuis
Dorothea, be sure to also join the data caucus that just started. - kendrak from Android

I'm more of an extrovert than I think I am.
I'm just the opposite. - Zamms
I've been moving more into the middle range as I've gotten older. - John Dupuis
I'm more of an introvert than people think I am, at least work people - maʀtha
I appear to have finished my internship (pending prof's approval). They are wonderful wonderful people, my internship colleagues, whom I would love to work with again in the future... AND I AM SO GLAD I AM DONE WITH THIS TWO-JOB SCHEDULE. Also once I finish my cataloging assignments/classwork (still substantial), I will be DONE done. Stay tuned...

My public school pay stub has an easter bunny rubber stamped onto the purple paper it's printed on. #really?

I think because of my preoccupation with fantasy worlds, when I first learned about the history of the Jesuits at my Jesuit-run high school, I imagined that St. Ignatius had founded an actual order of paladins.
I think it's mainly because of Ignatius's military training that I developed a sense that the Jesuits were kind of a quasimilitary arm of the Roman Catholic Church. - Victor Ganata
The head of the Jesuit order is called the Superior General. - Victor Ganata
I realize that I probably misinterpreted what "Church Militant" actually means. (More so than "crusader", it seems to be the Christian equivalent of "mujahid" which also seems to be similarly frequently misinterpreted.) - Victor Ganata
The founding document does make the quasimilitary nature of the Society of Jesus evident, though: "Whoever desires to serve as a soldier of God beneath the banner of the Cross in our Society, which we desire to be designated by the Name of Jesus, and to serve the Lord alone and the Church, his spouse, under the Roman Pontiff, the Vicar of Christ on earth, should, after a solemn vow of... more... - Victor Ganata
My impression of Spanish history was very hazy when I was 11-13. It's like they probably explained it in class at some point but I missed it? and then I got mixed up about the expulsion of the Jews in 1492 and the expulsion of the Jesuits in 1767 and I wasn't sure who was which and which was who and was there more than one expulsion and what are jesuits anyway and are they related to... more... - Betsy
(And that's what goes through my mind any time anyone mentions Jesuits.) - Betsy
Yeah, I'm not really sure what faction exactly shot Ignatius with a cannonball, or even what army Ignatius was serving with at the time. #TooManyWars - Victor Ganata
You are RUINING Assassin's Creed for me! (or you would be if I'd ever played those games... stupid backlog.) - Andrew C (✔)

I'll betchya Heartbleed is going to be the Watergate of #itsec in that we'll be calling things Somethingbleed or Heartsomething from now on.
I <3 Blake. - Joe - Systems Analyst
who doesn't? - ellbeecee
Catherine Pellegrino
I'd feel a lot better about that email from ALA saying that "all member data and passwords are secure" re: Heartbleed, if ALA hadn't repeatedly sent me my own password in plain text in the body of an email message.
Should have said "all member data and passwords are secure as they were before." - Steele Lawman

Catherine Pellegrino, "Walking the walk may be trickier than it first appears: An open access publishing story," Spurious Tuples -
Pull quote: “Dear [Name]: Thank you for sending the publishing agreement for Johns Hopkins University Press and portal. I’m very pleased to see that I will retain the right to post a copy of the article on my personal or institutional repository or online site. Retaining the copyright to my professional work is also important to me, so I’m wondering if there is an alternate agreement, or if the current agreement can be altered, so that I retain the copyright but the Press still has the ability to do what it needs to do with the content. If not, the current agreement is fine and I will happily sign, [etc.]. But if an alternate agreement is possible, I would prefer to pursue that option. Sincerely, etc.” - Stephen Francoeur
I sometimes wonder whether almost every publisher has an Alternate Contract in hand (ALA divisional journals used to, before the best ones went straight OA, and all of the book publishers I've worked with do--the "you keep your copyright" clause is clearly, clearly well-prepared in advance). Actually, strike that: I now *assume* that all but the skeeviest publishers and the OA ones have Alternate Contracts ready. - Walt Crawford
["and the OA ones" because those shouldn't be asking for copyright assignment in any case, although some of them seem to.] - Walt Crawford
My dad just asked for and got a similar license for his forthcoming book. Woo! - lris
Great. This really is in the "it never hurts to ask" category, and that alternate agreement is likely to be there just waiting to be asked for. - Walt Crawford
To expand a little on the principle that "almost every [non-skeevy] publisher has an alternate contract in hand," when I first asked the managing editor, she honestly didn't know, and had to ask around. And the alternate contract that she eventually was able to find is clearly of an older vintage (she admitted to this up front) but is still apparently legally binding. (It also asked for... more... - Catherine Pellegrino
And then also, regarding the "never hurts to ask" principle: I really, REALLY have to see this as intimately connected to the "women don't negotiate because we're not idiots" principle. I added that footnote to the blog post about the whole Nazareth College fiasco precisely because I think it's relevant. An accepted article CAN be un-accepted. Which is why the wording and tone of the email I sent had to be so, so, SO carefully-calibrated. I really cannot emphasize this strongly enough. - Catherine Pellegrino
When I was initially casting about for homes for this article (I can't find the post now, because Friendfeed is a new service and they're still working out the kinks) I was given advice to submit it to various journals and "just add the SPARC addendum." Which was well-intentioned but not especially helpful: what if the journal said no to the SPARC addendum? (I had no way to efficiently... more... - Catherine Pellegrino
amazing how often bad unreflected-on advice contains the word "just." - RepoRat
I'd never suggest that my advice is good advice, but I wonder whether a journal that unaccepts a paper because you ask about an alternative contract is a journal you want to deal with. Easy for me to say, of course... - Walt Crawford
I asked for an alternate agreement from Springer and didn't get them, so I turned down doing the chapter. I did not even bother to ask the NYT, and I signed the draconian contract, because NYT. - laura x
Walt, by the time you discover it's a journal you don't want to deal with, you're already dealing with them. - Catherine Pellegrino
Ain't it the truth? It took me a year after LHT News was purchased by what's now Emerald before I realized that I had no business writing for them, even if the money was OK. - Walt Crawford

Just between you and me, the biggest problem I have with my LIS students not doing the reading is that I still have to do the reading, so that I can answer any questions they might have about the reading (were they to do it).
Also: teaching other people (semesterly, rather than one-offs) has taught me SO MUCH about how I learn. Which is never by discussing an assigned reading. Ever. Ever ever ever. - Meg VMeg
Yeah, I had problems with my LIS students not doing the readings as well. Gave up. - Joe - Systems Analyst
Sure, and I totally get it. In library school, I did not infrequently complete the minimum amount of reading necessary to fulfill whatever writing/sharing obligation existed (partly because I already had a librarian job, partly because I'm lazy). That's why I have them do in-class labs (and we discuss those). But I am further tempted to do memorization drills and complicated multiple choice tests because it's more how I learn (which seems educationally unfashionable at the very least). - Meg VMeg
My undergrads (from many majors) also don't do the reading. It's such a freaking drag. I then made them take turns choosing readings and leading discussions so they could see how it feels, er, I mean participate more fully in their educations. Results were mixed. Sigh. - kaijsa
Meg VMeg
And we're still back! What a glorious day!
