Speakers - Charleston Conference | Charleston Conference -
Help me not be mad but instead positive and constructive. Certainly we know women who have opinions about issues in book and serial acquisitions to suggest to the conference directors. Please list them here and I will send the email with names for them to consider. - Marie from Bookmarklet
well, my first thought was Jenica, but I don't think that would work :) Amy Buckland? Barbara Fister? - ~Courtney F
Who is Gah? - Joe
Great interview today with Frances Pinter of Knowledge Unlatched: Liza Daly of Safari Books Online. Melanie Schlosser. Maura Smale. Allison Brown (Library Publishing Toolkit, SUNY Geneseo). Patricia Uttaro, also of Library Publishing Toolkit. - RepoRat
Barbara, Pat, or Pamela from the Lever Initiative: - RepoRat
Kate Pitcher, interim director at SUNY Geneseo, who could speak to the SUNY Open Textbooks, Library Publishing Toolkit, and their decade-long institutional shift from collection building to resource sharing. - Jenica
Sue Polanka of No Shelf Required? (Haven't heard her, though). - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
Kathleen Fitzpatrick of MLA, though I don't know, has she spoken there before? - RepoRat
Maria Bonn. Meredith Kahn because - RepoRat
Wonderful ideas, thank you. Any other suggestions? I will send the email before I leave for the day. - Marie
Well, I would be mad *and* constructive about this :) I would add Shana Kimball who works for the New York Public Library and Unknowledge Unlatched and was previously at U of Mich: - copystar
email sent. - Marie
Thanks for this! - copystar
yes, thank you. - RepoRat
Thank you Marie! - Galadriel C.
Wow, two of the committee already wrote back, thanking me (us) for the suggestions. They'd like me to now put together topics/formats for these speakers. Uh, CAN DO. I'm thinking broad strokes here: Alternative publishing mechanisms (panel or single presenter); Publication length considerations (given Maize and SAGE's new 100 Questions series, it seems that shorter monographs are on the rise) (panel). What else would you suggest? - Marie
The elephant in the room is usually reward mechanisms, whether credit or tenure/promotion. Fitzpatrick could certainly speak to that; so could anybody working on OA monographs. - RepoRat
Lettie Conrad at SAGE is fantastic on discoverability and related issues. - Roger Schonfeld
Palgrave has been pushing their Pivot monographs, in the vein of shorter publications. I think Springer might be considering something similar. - Holly's favorite Anna
Morgan and Claypool has had short monographs for some time. Also from Oxford, - Joe
More great ideas. Thanks, LSW! I'm headed back to email to share with them. - Marie
Late brainstorm: Caroline Edwards, OLH is pretty dang ambitious. - RepoRat
i second Caroline Edwards! - jambina
Just a quick note of thanks for all your help. They're moving our ideas forward to figure out where to insert them into the schedule. - Marie
Well done, Marie! - Jenica
Marie wins the internet today! - RepoRat
Most excellent! - Galadriel C. from Android

Scrolled through my feeds, saw TexMex photos. Now want TexMex. I blame @hollysue .
If I don't get a taco soon I'm going to be 100% Bitchy on that quiz. - Marie
i haven't been able to fulfill my craving yet either, marie, if that helps at all. :) - holly #ravingfangirl
My body played nasty tricks on me yesterday. Glad to be able to sit up and keep my eyes open today.
Bodies are stupid. I'm glad you are upright today. - Marie
ooh, and here comes the optical migraine. Fun times. - lris
I love our new grill. Today: Bacon wrapped taters, turkey burgers, and on the side a huge helping of cauliflower. #nomnomnom
*gets in the car and starts driving* - Big Joe Silence
Did you grill the cauli? If so, tips on how to do that? I'd give it a try but have no idea what to do. - Marie
Nope, Marie, that was the only thing that was not grilled. Simply steamed and served with a bit of ranch dressing, in my case, plain in her case. - Uli
We might have to try grilling it sometime, though. Maybe keep it in fairly large chunks, nuke it a little bit to start, then finish off on the grill? I dunno. - Kirsten
You had me at bacon. - Melly
roasted cauliflower in the oven is tasty. i don't see why you couldn't do the same thing on the grill? big chunks, coated in olive oil with some salt and pepper. on one of those vegetable grill pans - Christina Pikas
Maybe our Brussels sprouts will work, too. Might have some field testing to do. - Uli
I volunteer as tribute (taste tester). - Marie
Bacon wrapped taters? Intrigued! - Heleninstitches
Marie: I'll let you know time and date for the festivities. Helen: Very easy. Poke them taters and soak them for a while, wrap a slice of bacon around, grill in aluminium foil (not aluminum). 20 min or so, depending on size. Done. Heavenly. - Uli

I blame @hollysue for this :)

Finally removed "2013 LMU Senior Vice President Fellow" from my email signature. Now I'm just regular ol' me!
you are never just regular ol' you. you are awesome, awesome you! - Sir Shuping is just sir
You could put that other major award line on there! - Joe
"2014-present Irritant" :D - Marie
Would you have time for a statistics-related steering committee? - Holly's favorite Anna
You know, that Ingram Coutts Innovation Award thingy... - Joe
A wonderful recent graduate died in a tragic swimming accident yesterday. You think this kind of thing can't happen to a smart, talented athlete, but I guess it can.
Oh, lris, that is sad. I am sorry. - Marianne
:( - RepoRat
Truly sorry. - Joe
We've had so many tragic deaths this year. Especially for such a small school. - lris
Wow, yeah. - Meg VMeg
I'm so very sorry. - Galadriel C.
So sorry for your loss. - LB's Bubba. The other 1
so sorry to hear this - maʀtha
Oh wow. - Marie
I'm sorry. That's awful. - YvonneM
I'm sorry to hear it. - Steele Lawman

For dinner: 1/2 pollo a la brasa, maduros, extra aji. Mexican Squirt to drink.
It is so hard to cook for myself when there is all this amazing, cheap food everywhere. - Meg VMeg

You would absolutely love it here. - Meg VMeg
agreed. - jambina

Yeah, multiple neighbors spend a few thousand dollars each on fireworks each year. I've spent a few hundred in years past, but nothing like the rest of my neighbors. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE from WinForFeed

I'm so happy the internet exists. - Marie
Came for the ice cream cones, stayed to drill a hole for their picnic table umbrella. Because I had my hole saw kit in my truck and why not help a small business owner who just opened up shop this summer.
You're a good egg, kid. - Marie
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.
lib-circplus is a mailing list I'm on: - Freeda B.
I hope that's good news for you! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Good in the sense there are new things to learn. Bad in the sense I still retain responsibility for all prior duties and roles. - aaron from YouFeed
Aaron, that sounds like more than one job. - Marie
in a way yes. but the saving grace is it's not as if I am replacing anybody (at least for now), so it all runs without my intervention. I haven't been given any specific instructions by the powers that be, as per usual, given free reign to look around and decide what to improve. though been ignorant of basic concepts like shelf reading , stock take might make it Hard. - aaron from BuddyFeed
shelf reading is No Fun. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
when i used to have to do it at the publib I enjoyed it and got sucked in... then ddc is much more fun than lc. what was no fun was the children's picture books on the bottom shelf. Oy! - Christina Pikas
I wonder how many libraries are actually using ColorMARK (or whatever it's called), that vaguely bizarre product that attempts to ease shelfreading by using a spine label with colored bands that match the first few characters of the call number? (Or has the company quietly disappeared?) - Walt Crawford
I would comment on the thrill of shelfreading in the Doe stacks, all three million volumes, but there was very little of that done and only for specific purposes. - Walt Crawford
lib-circplus is the best list for access services type info. if you do interlibrary loan the ill-l list is also a good one to sub to. just never, ever ask about mailers. it sets off an argument for a week. i'd also look in the journal of access services, just to see if there's anything that catches your eye that's interesting. otherwise...i'm blanking on places/thing to look at - Sir Shuping is just sir
Be kind to your circ staff, and your shelvers. They do the most monotonous but important work in the library, and the circ staff, especially, deal with the most angry people. And they all get very little respect for it. - laura x
Shelf-reading can be very soothing if you're doing it as a break from other tasks that are driving you up the wall. If it's your regular job, you need an iPod so badly it's not funny. - Deborah Fitchett
Yeah, well, unfortunately, iPods and other MP3 players were in short supply in 1963-67, when I might have been doing shelf-reading. Not that I think we'd have been allowed to use them in the stacks while on paid status in any case. - Walt Crawford
When I was a student worker, we weren't allowed to wear headphones at all. We had to be available and approachable to help patrons in the stacks. Our shelvers here wear them all the time and I have to admit I don't like it because I'm an old crankypants and have very particular customer service expectations. But I am not a boss. - kaijsa
Other things I am looking at RFIDs & security (we apparently have a unusual hybrid system because our RFIDs were implemented fairly early in 2001), and yes ILL though for here this means books only. Document delivery refers to articles, which is under another dept. - aaron
RFID is the devil. As is security in general. Good luck! - laura x from iPhone
Laura yes, Circ staff deal with the most angry people. We currently don't have a one-desk approach (reference desk is one level up from entrence level), so they tend to get to deal with even non-circulation complaints (ahem.. discovery service). I got a couple of mths to figure out how to bring about a combined desk approach. - aaron
I luh y'all. #dranky
[draws tiny bubbles floating over your head; the top two are in the midst of popping] - Akiva
whatever you're drinking, give Pete some. - RepoRat
That reminds me - I should have a drink! - Brian Johns
OK - I luh you all too! - Brian Johns
But you luh me best. - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte from Android
Yes, MoTO, I luh you best. - Marie
SEEEEEEEE! - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte

Gah, need a unicorn chaser. - Marie from iPhone
I've been putting off reading this because I'm still in the deepest depths of cancer-related grief but it's sitting there, calling to me. - joey
*sends Marie a unicorn* - LB hates stale candy!
The book is there when you're ready, Joey. It is beautifully written. - Marie from iPhone
PS, thanx for the tissue and unicorn chaser, pals. - Marie from iPhone
I haven't finished it. I read it for one day (got over half way through) and the next day my eyes were sore and raw. I want to finish it, I'm just not sure when I'll be ready to. - Heather
How did you miss that it's a tearjerker? I mean, there's even a Buzzfeed list of tweets by people who were angry with John Green after the movie. - Holly's favorite Anna

Drinkin buddy wisdoms... Him: Does he know you like him? Me: yeah. I said 'you know I like you, right?' Him: and what did he say? Me: he said 'yeah I know' Him: and he didn't jump on that? He must not be into girls then.
Me: I think maybe he's just shy. Him: that could be. Me: thanks. This has been real helpful. Him: yeah, sorry. Let's go back to talking about whiskey. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich from Android
You always know where you stand with whiskey. #truth - Marie from iPhone

Someone hit the bumper cover, busted the lights and dented the body in the school parking lot. Nice role model!

We just dropped off flowers for the teachers to thank them for their hard work and taking such good care of Sophie. I suspect it was the truck behind her. It hit the car pretty hard as I found plastic 20 feet away. Just one of those things you can do without. You know, I'm so tired, I can't even be angry. That will come once I receive the estimate. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Ugh, what a shame. - Marie
