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. http://digital.yorku.ca/i...
My ASCLA colleague Chris Corrigan is sponsoring an excellent preconference @ Annual this year that will help train librarians to understand and implement the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).

I am trying to account for everything that I would need for an interactive display setup. Can you tell me what I am missing? Touchscreen, Kiosk enclosure, MacMini (assorted cables) I am planning on putting together the content so I wasn't figuring in any cost for software unless you think you have seen a product that is great that you would reccome
Cod signal to those of you in private universities: if you are willing, please DM me the name of the person responsible for your records management. Also, if you have a useful RM website I could look at/crib from, that would be helpful. Thank you!
I'm certain someone has done this, but my research-fu is failing me. We have a list of titles and ISBNs from ILLiad, and we want to find a batch tool to give us subject headings. Something along the lines of http://classify.oclc.org/classif... but with a batch export option. Our second option is student workers...Any thoughts?
I'm failing at finding this - I think it exists, but can't be certain. Is there a mailing list for first year instruction in libraries? I thought there was an ALA or ACRL one, but I'm not finding it at all.
conflicted. Student requested appointment with me today at 5pm, but never confirmed that she'd be here. Do I stay an extra 30-45 minutes to see if she shows, or go home to teach her a lesson (if she does show)?
I'm doing more and more "effective posters" classes, and think I need to have more social sciences posters in my example kit. Do you keep examples of (good and bad) social sciences posters? Would you be willing to share?
question for folks like RR and others, if I wanted to propose teaching a course on graphic novels and literacy to some of the library schools, how would I go about doing it? my thought is how graphic novels can be tied to the curriculum and common core standards so it has something for all levels of librarianship
For those going to midwinter, if anyone attends this, I'd be interested in hearing about the discussion: 2015 Midwinter Discussion Forum hosted by the ULS Committee on the Future of University Libraries Sunday, February 1st, 8:30-10:00 a.m., Sheraton Chicago, Superior A&B
I've solved the mystery of Auto-Suggest Susan. I don't know how to explain it in technical terms, but it seems that sometimes the query syntax for "starts with..." gets included as a search term (my first example was in http://friendfeed.com/lsw...). It's not as funny now. :-(
So for our 'community archive' site we want to publish [a url for] the thumbnail image in our OAI feed. Question is, in what element. (We're using http://www.openarchives.org/OAI... which for some reason lacks a convenient dc:thumbnail element.) Any best practice and/or good ideas?
