Anyone know of a good resource that lists scholarship opportunities for undergrad women pursuing STEM majors? Something national/international and/or that breaks down these opportunities by institution?
Tumblr question: is it possible to "reblog" from Tumblr to a standard library website? Any chance this could be done automagically? (I want a photo site where I can post images & info. that will automatically update on my library's home page. Instagram isn't it. Maybe Flickr?)
I have an instruction session Wed--the students have to research a key educational figure (Piaget, Montessori, etc.) in groups of 3-4. I'd like to do something interactive, but they won't have computers. I'm going to have them jot down possible search terms & databases to use--any other ideas?
When you tell someone that the thing doesn't work in Safari, and then watch them download Firefox from some random website in their Google results, one that is obviously spammy and untrustworthy, and it's like the slow-motion screaming "NNNNNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOoooooooo" but they're done before you can open your mouth.
Reference question: what does the 2002 edition of the New York Times Manual of Style say about using the title "Dr" for people who have a PhD, and who are speaking about their area of expertise? I can check the 1975 edition myself on Monday, so don't bother looking if you've only got the older edition.
my brain is not working well today, but figured I'd ask and see if anyone knew...is there a health metadata standard? i've found that there's one being developed for patient records and the like, but is there one for just health related materials?
Twiddly resume/CV question (biggest reason I hate applying for grants? they require an updated resume): I want to point out that I helped organize a conference, but don't want to use "co-organizer" as it seems to imply there were only 2 organizers. I was one of four or so. And "organizer" seems to imply I was the only one. What should I use?
I am now transferred to loans/circulations department after 2 years in technical services and 5 in reference/information services. Any advice/recommendations on what to read, what mailing list to subscribe etc would be greatly appreciated.
I'm totally thinking about badging the library -- at least, the reference encounter -- in mai library next year. Has anyone done this? See Webjunction "Badging the Library, Part 2: How"
I do not believe that there is a pipeline shortage of school librarians as CPS is saying. http://politics.suntimes.com/article... Maybe they don't want to go somewhere that they often see their jobs cut, have to cover multiple schools?
MPOW is req 2 do intro library activity for freshmen over 2 days, twice a day. Each group = 550 students, for an hour and a half (2200 students over 2 days). I wasn't able to attend 1st meeting, but minutes say the favored option is a "self-guided tour." Waiting till next mtg for more info, but...huh??
