On Wednesday, I'm teaching a workshop on "Data for Social Justice" (this particular class will address finding data, and I'll be teaching later ones about analyzing/visualizing and mapping the data). If you have any favorite data sources you think would be good for this, let me know!
Do any of you have a written document re: process for the outreach/instruction you do when your library gets a new database/digital content resource? E.g., write announcement that goes to faculty newsletter, schedule at least one hands-on workshop, offer an online session, schedule office hours highlighting, etc.?
Has anyone written about how well-intentioned organizations who started using wikis several years ago, are now stuck with information bogs from which it's hard to retrieve anything? Pretty sure we did it wrong.
Damn. Someone broke into my car between 5 and 7 at work tonight. Smashed the driver side window. Stole some random crazy stuff like headphones and toiletries -- but left my wallet and its cash alone. Uh, what? (EDIT: All fixed now, see http://friendfeed.com/lovefes...)
