Peter, Paul, and Mary - Greg GuitarBuster
First without my parents was Funk on the Green, Parliament Funkadelic, One Way, Bootsy Collins...1978. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Depends on how you define "concert". Does this include the local band who plays in a bar? A show at a county fair that you see with fair admission, but you don't really care about the band? Where you pay to actually see the band? - Joe
My dad took me and a friend to see Styx on the Mr. Roboto tour. \m/ - Steele Lawman
The Kingston Trio in 1960. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Blood, Sweat,and Tears with my parents. U2 with The Pixies opening as my choice. - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
Huey Lewis and the News (with parents, since I was in the 4th grade, but at my insistence), first show without parents was They Might Be Giants - Meg VMeg
Fobia, a Mexican rock band. :) Late 90s, I think. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

My choice, Simple MInds, '85. Got in my first accident on the way home in the wee hours. As a kid, the parents took us to many country, bluegrass, rockabilly shows. I don't recall the first, but I saw Willie and Johnny and June a few times back then. - Michael W. May

the first concert i was TAKEN to as a child was probably Harry Chapin. sometime in the 70s. - Big Joe Silence
Pure Prairie League (also Confederate Railroad) 2000-ish Or it may have been LFO and Blaque. The PPL was more a family event, to go hangout with Craig while he was nearby. - NOT THE CRICKET
The Bangles, summer 1987. My parents may have taken me to one prior to that, but that's the first one I remember attending without parental supervision. - Corinne L

PSA: An undetermined number of Ebrary and EBL e-books are not actually entire e-books. At a faculty member's request, we purchased an e-book via Ebrary, only to discover that some of the pages in said book are not available.
ebrarymissingpages.JPG
As you expand the TOC of the e-book, any chapter/section title followed by [text] means that the text isn't actually there. - Galadriel C.
According to Ebrary, this is because of publisher mandates at a title-by-title level. However, Ebrary can't give us a list of e-books that aren't actually whole e-books. - Galadriel C.
Sheesh. Thanks for the warning. I'm going to make a Twitter feed and it's just going to be called "@%$ing ebooks" and it will be full of swears. - Regular Amanda
Wow. We haven't run into this at all (likely just sheer dumb luck). But it's totally, totally bogus that such books don't come with a warning or notice of some sort, pre-purchase. Also bogus that PQ can't provide a list of titles with text missing. - Kirsten
Also, according to Ebrary: "Because publishers don't tell us that they are giving titles with removed content, right now the best option for identifying books like this is to look through them. I'm sorry there isn't an easier way. Luckily, this is a rare occurrence." - Galadriel C.
That is an unlike like. - Joe
This is so far beyond outrageous that I don't even know what to call it. - Catherine Pellegrino
lol - Meg VMeg
So...where's the discount for every time we run into this that is (at minimum) equivalent to 2x the cost of a print book so we can have 2 copies on hand as well? - Hedgehog
This may be why e-resources librarians drink. - Marie
Edited to add that this incomplete e-book issue occurs with EBL e-books too. - Galadriel C.
Can they tell you which publishers at least? So then we can set up a schedule, so that they get a call every 15 minutes for a whole workday, complaining about this? - Meg VMeg
According to Ebrary support, they don't have a list of publishers that provide incomplete e-books. However, I've sent a note to our rep to learn more and request more details. - Galadriel C.
This is wack. - Steele Lawman
And there goes the idea that vendors are looking out for us. (I mean, if it's that rare, couldn't they have started a list? Bet both they and the publishers hoped we wouldn't notice.) - barbara fister
that is beyond bogus. maybe we can crowdsource a list and then name-and-shame the publishers. - RepoRat
Publishers negotiated/paid for just print reproduction rights for the relevant essays. Assholes. - DJF from Android
Satan invented permissions to tormet us. - barbara fister
Something something open access noncommercial - DJF from Android
In further correspondence with Ebrary, their prevailing theme is that because this is infrequent, it's not a big deal. What?!? I. Can't. Even. This is such unbelievably poor customer service and an awful user experience. - Galadriel C.
you didn't get what you paid for, and it's not a big deal? wtf? - RepoRat
If you were an individual, rather than an institution, this would be totally call-the-credit-card-initiate-a-chargeback territory. - Catherine Pellegrino
I know, right? I will be looking at our license agreement next week. We do not have the time or staff to review every single ebook to make sure it's complete and then track refund requests. - Galadriel C.
Is that the actual message from Ebrary, with the word "luckily"? As if the pages are accidentally missing and they accidentally sold it to you anyway. Luck should not be involved here! - Megan loves summer
Yes Megan, that's an excerpt from an Ebrary support message. - Galadriel C. from Android
that is some straight-up boolsheet. - RepoRat
That's nuts. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
gah - maʀtha
Gah indeed - this is crap. - Jen
Dandy. - Heather
Galadriel, are you on ERIL-L or SERIALST? I'm curious to see what kind of response you'd get there. I know publishers monitor both. Let's raise a stink! - Holly's favorite Anna
Whoa - Christina Pikas from iPhone
o_O wtf kinda crap ass bs is this?? i respected ebrary for the most part, but this...this is some serious crazy crap - Sir Shuping is just sir
Even before this, ebrary was a waste of electromagnetism - DJF from Android
Anna - I'm on ERIL-L and LIBLICENSE-L and am planning to post. I'm just waiting for further another response from Ebrary after elevating the issue from support to our rep. Yes! Raising a stick is certainly warranted! - Galadriel C. from Android
Let me know when someone posts on this and I will signal boost the crap out of it. That's beyond outrageous, it's straight up fraud IMO. - Andy
will watch for your post on liblicense-l and raise sh*t at mpow. - jambina
Apparently the issue is because of copyrighted content not being released for e-publication and its becoming a "smaller and smaller problem." Yet, our users have reported 3 incomplete ebooks since last week. Posts to listservs coming tomorrow or Wednesday! - Galadriel C. from Android
I just happened on this tweet, which I think may involve people who aren't in the conversation going on here, but is definitely related: https://twitter.com/whateve... - Catherine Pellegrino
I just tried the "refer to print version" search in ebrary and 30 books we own showed up in the search results. 29 included omitted figures and illustrations and the 30th was the book above that excludes entire chapters. - Galadriel C.
And it gets curiouser and curiouser for now the Ebrary e-book mysteriously includes all previously missing content with no notice or further explanation. (This isn't go to stop the listserv post from happening though!) - Galadriel C.
"cheese it, the cops! I mean, the librarians!" - RepoRat
This can also happen in Gale Virtual Reference Library. We bought the multi-volume American Decades: Primary Sources from them, only to find that in a significant number of cases, the introduction to the primary source was there, but the primary source itself was not. When we realized this we stamped our feet and complained, with the results you might expect. - JffKrlsn
Most of the talk here has been about Ebrary, which we don't use at MPOW, but I can confirm that at least one book from EBL is missing chapters (Introducing Don DeLillo edited by Frank Lentricchia, Duke UP). (EDITED: we haven't actually bought it yet, but it's in our catalogue for PDA purchase) - Megan loves summer
Just to follow-up on Megan's note, that yes, this problem does indeed apply to all e-book aggregators. We found the above example in Ebrary, but ProQuest has confirmed that EBL is also impacted but continues to note that it's not a big deal because it's not common. As it turns out the faculty member that requested the book above is acquainted with the book's author and the faculty member has alerted the author of this problem. Per the faculty member, the author is not pleased. - Galadriel C.
I found 5 books missing images in our ebrary collection and 26 books missing content in our myilibrary collection (all images except for one book missing four poems). - DJF from Android
It's a while before my next deadline, but I haven't gotten in any trouble for a while, so I'm thinking about writing this up for my next LJ column, unless it's resolved by then. Would y'all be okay with that (it's fine if not)? Would you want yourself and/or your institution mentioned? Would it be okay if the column linked to this thread? - RepoRat
Silence = consent? - JffKrlsn from Android
RR - please do! I will also forward you a copy of the list post once it is sent. - Galadriel C.
Thank you, Galadriel! (Anyone else, please feel free to object! I will not be upset in any way if you do!) - RepoRat
Does anyone have an EBL example? Our rep says it's only for ebrary content, but your responses indicate otherwise. Thank you Galadriel and all - you do a great service by sharing this information. - Jen
Hey Jen - the above book had missing content in both Ebrary and EBL last week. We bought the Ebrary version and previewed the EBL version to check across platforms when we discovered the EBL problem. Unfortunately, I don't have screen shots. I don't know if the content appeared in EBL as it did in Ebrary this week though. Also, you're most welcome! - Galadriel C. from Android
The book's title, interestingly enough, is The Corporate Responsibility Code Book by Deborah Leipziger. Per the faculty member at MPOW work that knows the author, the author was not happy to learn that some of the content was missing in the e-book. - Galadriel C. from Android
I'm not speaking on behalf of my institution here, but would love to see the thread in an LJ article. - Megan loves summer
Oh, and I have a screenshot from EBL (Introducing Don DeLillo), which is missing a couple of chapters. Let me know if you want it. - Megan loves summer
Megan - if your up for sharing the screenshot, I would be happy to include it in the listserv post that I'm working on! - Galadriel C.
Galadriel--which listserv, if you don't mind me asking? - YvonneM
ERIL-L and LIBLICENSE-L as well as the list for the Boston Library Consortium's Heads of Resource Management community of interest that I'm a part of because the BLC has a pilot consortial PDA with Ebrary. I was planning to post last week, but the situation keeps changing and becoming more bizarre and I didn't want to post right before the holiday weekend. - Galadriel C.

Today I weeded a rock from the ready-reference collection at my library. A rock. As in, a piece of the earth. I can haz go home now?
Maybe it went missing from the geology section. - John Dupuis
was it barcoded? - Marie
We don't have a geology section. It wasn't barcoded; it's a ROCK. As in, someone brought it in from outside and left it at the desk. IT'S JUST A ROCK. And I'm weeding it, dammit. - Catherine Pellegrino
Rocks are people too. Maybe a natural history museum in the neighbourhood needs another one? - John Dupuis
I double-dog dare you to make up a story about that rock so good that it eventually ends up with its own Wikipedia page. - RepoRat
A weeded rock gathers no dust? - Meg VMeg
I'm thinking it could be the start of a new special collection. Buy a display case, make a bunch of little labels ... profit. - John Dupuis
Imperial College London has a Rock Library: https://wwwf.imperial.ac.uk/earthsc... Now I want one too. (Yes, I'm the earth sciences librarian among many other things...) - John Dupuis
Will you count it in the stats as one volume withdrawn? - Marie
Did you check with the faculty? They might use that rock all the time. - Steele Lawman
You have to keep it forever and forever. It's the Rock of Ages. - Betsy
Please put it outside before yo ubash someone in here on the head with it? - Aaron the Librarian
....it actually looks like it might be a pretty good skipping rock, so I think I'll toss it into the lake at lunchtime to find out. :) - Catherine Pellegrino
I am a rock, I am an iiiiiiiii-hi-hi-land. Toss me in the lake? - Uli
Ah but does it carry bacteria from another world that will now forever change the lake? :-p - Hedgehog
The rock has been deaccessioned. Into the (artificial) lake. That is all. - Catherine Pellegrino

"First of all, the university is allowing students to determine how to spend their $60 thousand library budget for e-books?

After doing a keyword search in a database, I have never seen a false hit that was an interesting alternative path to enlightenment. - Joe
To me, the most interesting line was this: "Old-fashioned books can be requested on loan from libraries at Florida's 11 other public universities." In other words, they wouldn't be doing this if the system weren't already chock-full of the paper books their students might need. And there's no mention of database access, which I'm assuming is coming in through the system as well. $60,000... more... - Kirsten
I think the $60k is just their DDA budget, not their full materials budget - what I love is they've basically said "here's when a purchase is triggered" - anyone want to bet on how fast they run through that $60k? - ellbeecee

Roasted Tomatoes and Onions on Toast recipe on Food52.com - http://food52.com/recipes...
Roasted Tomatoes and Onions on Toast recipe on Food52.com
"The inspiration for this recipe came from the treasure trove that is The Smitten Kitchen Cookbook. Deb Perelman’s perfect union involves cipollinis and mini-Romas together, poured over toast with white beans for heft. Mine involves sungolds and cherry tomatoes bathed in olive oil, spring onions instead of cipollinis (I’m too lazy to peel the latter), and husky cloves of garlic roasted alongside the whole mess, to be spread on the toast like butter. Instead of the beans, to make it a meal, I eat seconds." - Jennifer Dittrich from Bookmarklet
"1 pound spring onions (or pearl onions, or other smallish onions) scant 1 1/2 pounds cherry, grape, and/or sungold tomatoes 1/4 cup olive oil 4 to 5 big cloves of garlic Kosher salt 4 to 5 thick slices of country bread Herbs for garnish, optional (I like basil or thyme)" - Jennifer Dittrich
"Heat your oven to 400° F. Peel your onions. Cut any larger ones in half so they will all roast at about the same speed. Dump the prepped onions, along with the tomatoes and unpeeled garlic cloves, onto a baking sheet and toss with the olive oil and two three-finger pinches of kosher salt. Toss until everything is coated, slide into the hot oven, and roast for 35 to 40 minutes, stirring... more... - Jennifer Dittrich

Construction error leads to squiggly lanes on highway - CNN.com - http://www.cnn.com/2014...
Construction error leads to squiggly lanes on highway - CNN.com
"Read between the lines -- but be careful if those lines are on a Virginia highway. Temporary striping tape installed on Interstate 66 peeled off on Monday, creating spaghetti-shaped dividers that caused lengthy delays for those on their morning commute, according to CNN affiliate WUSA. At some points trucks were bigger than the lanes themselves. The Virginia Department of Transportation said in a press release that it is fixing the lanes and apologized to drivers for the confusion. The markings were installed on August 15. A local reporter said there was a "nasty" accident near the lanes, though it's not clear if the confusion caused by the lanes played a factor. Two lanes and a shoulder will be closed overnight Monday to fix the issue. No word on whether they'll "think outside the box" to make sure this doesn't happen again." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
