RT @jenshimada: Google Analytics can show what days/times users access your discovery system, which can be used to inform reference desk staffing. #erl15
How are those two things related? - Marie
Ours are opposite. Gate count =! online usage. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Right, I'd assume that if that stat informed any kind of staffing, it would be chat reference. - Marie

thing that makes me bonkers: co-worker tells people if their phone rang while they were away from the desk... as though we don't have phones that already tell us this. i'm like "why are you telling me this?"
Phone's ringing, dude: - Marie

Waiting for Con Ed to fix the smoking manhole in front of our building, a problem that started yesterday afternoon. The smell is nasty, and there's always a danger of electrocution or explosions. Con Ed tells me that they're inundated with calls like this today. Here's some shaky video of the mess:...
Oof. I hope that's not your car next to it. At least the car windows are up. - bentley
Nope, not my car (don't have one at all, actually). - Stephen Francoeur from Android
crap - Meg VMeg
Still waiting... - Stephen Francoeur
inundated? Really? How many smoking manholes are in Manhattan today? - Hedgehog
Not sure I want to know the answer to that question... - Meg VMeg
Earlier this month, there were 250 fires reported in a day: - Stephen Francoeur
Well, Con Ed has been at work now for 2 hours. We've had flickering lights, one explosion, and lots of thuds from the work in front of our building. Hope this ends soon. - Stephen Francoeur
Glad it didn't explode before they got there! - Meg VMeg
Wow. - Marie
NYC is a mysterious and dystopian land.... - lris
They're still out there with a vacuum cleaner truck. At least the smoldering electrical fire is out. - Stephen Francoeur
Yeesh - lris from Android
There's a great Joan Didion essay about how NYC is actually a completely horrible place to live and how no one would put up with its inanities anywhere else in the country. - laura x from iPhone
I'd like to think each burg in America abounds with equal proportions of inanities if you look hard enough. - Stephen Francoeur
Also, I'm going to have to find that essay by Joan Didion now. - Stephen Francoeur

So, who is up for an LSW meet up at ER&L next week? Perhaps a table at the Sunday happy hour like last year and/or a lunch? Joelle and I are free for lunch on Wednesday.
i suppose i should look at my schedule for this, hm? :) - ~Courtney F
please post pictures from the meet up! - Marie
Me! My flight's at 3. What time were you thinking? :) - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android

The quotes need some explanation, please. - Marie
Baked ranch chicken, sweet potatoes, a random vegetable (possibly broccoli ) and a salad - Christina Pikas from iPhone

Moroccan Lentil Soup with Pita and Peanut butter hummus - Hedgehog
Well see, now I'm intrigued. - Marie
ham/broccoli/grand cru quiche. and there will be cake! finally! cake! - holly #ravingfangirl
We put these into flour tortillas: shredded cabbage, black beans, mayo/chili/lime dressing, cheese, fish sticks. You may now proceed to un-sub me. - Catherine Pellegrino
That sounds pretty good. - Marie
it is! But far from authentic. - Catherine Pellegrino
Catherine - I find myself wanting to try that with chicken fingers. - Katy S
I bet that would be good too. But if calling mine "fish tacos" is a stretch, yours would be....not fish tacos. :) - Catherine Pellegrino
Roast beast and sweet potatoes. - Prairie & I Know It from Android
Steak and mushrooms, twice-baked potatoes, and broccoli. I contributed the broccoli :) - Jen

Rumor - EBSCO purchasing YBP. Yes? No? Maybe?
Haven't heard a thing. EBSCO's on a total acquisitions tear, though, so I see no reason to rule it out. - RepoRat
So EBSCO would be buying YBP from Baker & Taylor? I suppose anything's possible. - Walt Crawford
Huh, I wonder if that would make our ebrary title acquisition situation a little awkward. - Meg VMeg
Hmmmm.... - Hedgehog
I can see the business case for doing so - but I'm leery of the end-user experience results. It quill at least make billing even easier - Aaron the Librarian from Android
Wello wello well. Guess we'll see how this goes... - Meg VMeg
Although that "And in the darkness bind them" bit of the rhyme makes a tad more sense now. GET IT? *BIND* THEM??? - Meg VMeg
wonder what this means for discovery layers, if anything - weelibrarian
Huh. We just saw our YBP rep this week & he didn't say anything. Whut. - YvonneM
i guess you've seen the email by now. - Marie
Just got the email after I saw this. - Prairie & I Know It
lol @ Meg VMeg i tend to make unintentional puns during instruction sessions. No one else is ever as excited about it as I am. :-) Our rep just got the email btw. - YvonneM

Catherine Pellegrino
I just clicked on a link to ProQuest Statistical Insight and got prompted by Oxford University Press to log in to the Chinese Journal of International Law. This, ladies and gentlemen, is why my co-worker and I click every link on our A-Z list, from off-campus, monthly. #WTF
o.O - RepoRat
"click every link on our A-Z list, from off-campus, monthly" <- wut. - Marie's not a very long list, you know. - Catherine Pellegrino
Oh wait, it's Databases A-Z, not E-Journals A-Z. So actually much shorter than you're probably thinking: - Catherine Pellegrino
I'm with Marie (although it's an excellent practice). We have almost 300 links on our DB A to Z, though - ~Courtney F
We keep telling ourselves that if we manage to get two months in a row with no errors, we can reduce the frequency to every-two-months, etc. We've never made it even ONE month with no errors. - Catherine Pellegrino
Yeah, clicking every database link we have would kill my will to live. We have more than 700. - kaijsa
This is what student workers are for. Just set them up on a computer that's had its IP address hidden from the proxy server, so it registers as off campus. - Kirsten
I... feel like... a lot of this ought to be automatable? If we know the URL to which a link should redirect, the computer can check that, eliminate a lot of "working fine, next?" and forward any "huh, that's weird" to human beings for further checking. - RepoRat
Also, they're WAY cheaper than those databases. - barbara fister
(GRRRRRR) - barbara fister
There was such a product/service that exhibited at ER&L last year, RR, but if it's a choice between that and another product... - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
bah, doesn't need a product, any half-competent scripter could hack that up -- I know because I'm pretty damn sure I could, and I'm half-competent at best. - RepoRat
I love that LibGuides has a link checker built-in, so we always know if something on a guide is wonky. I wish we used that to manage our e-stuff, but we have a homegrown database that the ERLs are loathe to abandon. So we duplicate effort and I hates it. - kaijsa
So, to answer the suggestions: 1. Hiding a computer's IP from the proxy server requires intervention from IT; our experience is that the fewer interventions from IT into the inner workings of the proxy server, the better (also, we'd need to ask them to hide it, and then un-hide it again, monthly, because we can't afford to have a workstation permanently register as "off campus"). - Catherine Pellegrino
2. the kind of error-checking that we're doing is a bit more complex than can generally be delegated to a student worker, in our experience. (For example, the issue that I described above displays different behaviors in different browsers and operating systems.) - Catherine Pellegrino
3. We're checking not only for 404s, but also for proxy errors, redirects to the wrong database, etc. so a scripted link-checker, such as is built into LibGuides, won't cut it. (We already considered and rejected LG's link checker for this reason.) - Catherine Pellegrino
4. We don't always know the URL to which the link should redirect; part of the problem that I describe above is that it goes through (from what I can tell) three or four redirects along the way, and vendors change their redirects all the time. What we're checking for is "does clicking on this link take the user to the place s/he expects to land," which is kind of hard to script. - Catherine Pellegrino
On roughly what number of databases do the problems in 4. arise? The stuff in 3. can be worked around, if the scripter is told the correct eventual target. - RepoRat
(And yeah, there are always gonna be edge cases. My half-competent self wouldn't dream of writing a script that could check every link. I could, however, write one that cut link-checking time by a lot by limiting human intervention to the edge cases, and that would be my goal.) - RepoRat
We have such a script. We did not write said script but it is freely available. It goes to a URL, looks for specific text on a page, and then reports back if that text was found. It is good for checking packages of eresources where the pages in each package have the same text. - Marie
Funnily enough I found two databases where URLs had changed and I didn't know about it today. While the redirects worked, the proxy drops out because it doesn't know the new URL. Bah and humbug. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
Marie - can you give us a bit more direction to that script? - Lisa Hinchliffe
If you're on ezproxy, you can add a noip element (will get from work computer after lunch) and it will pretend you are not inside your ip range - Aaron the Librarian from Android
I use IncludeIP {internal IP address} in EZproxy, which forces me to login through ezproxy even though we've done ExcludeIP {full campus internal range} so on campus people go straight to the resource. But it sounded from the way Catherine wrote it that they're using a different proxy system under the control of IT? - Deborah Fitchett
hmmm. plus I have a campus developed layer between me and ezproxy itself, so the script looks for teh noip statement, not ezproxy :| - Aaron the Librarian
Here's an article introducing the script: - Marie
Thank you! - Lisa Hinchliffe

What's a book that is famously written by more than one person? Like, everyone knows that Blah & Blah wrote that book, and both are listed on the cover.
Not Masters & Johnson, though. - Meg VMeg
Strunk & White? - Spidra Webster
Good Omens by Neil Gaiman & Terry Pratchett - Spidra Webster
All the President's Men, Woodward and Bernstein - Jennifer Dittrich
^ Good one! - Spidra Webster
Lincoln Child and Douglas Preston have a bunch of books they've done together, Stephen King and Peter Straub, as well as Margaret Weis and Tracey Hickman, but those tend more towards genre/airport novel sorts of things. - Jennifer Dittrich
Man, I'm a loyal genre fiction reader and I thought of Strunk and White before Good Omens. - Jenica from iPhone
Oh! Also Gibson and Sterling for "The Difference Engine." - Jennifer Dittrich
In the SF world, Frederik Pohl and CM Kornbluth are famous collaborators. Larry Niven & Jerry Pournelle, too. Pohl & Jack Williamson. - John Dupuis
Stephen King and Peter Straub wrote at least one book together. - WebGoddess
The Nanny Diaries, Emma Mclaughlin and Nicola Kraus. Only sort of famous briefly, though. - laura x
Liddell and Scott (Greek lexicon) and Lewis and Short (Latin dictionary), if you're a Classicist. - laura x
In that same vain: Goodwin & Gulick (Greek grammar) - Bren from iPhone
Fruttero & Lucentini - Roux
Science Fiction authors Larry Niven and Jerry Pournelle wrote "The Mote in God's Eye", "Inferno", "Lucifer's Hammer", "Footfall", and "Oath of Fealty" (and a few others) together. - Big Joe Silence
Steven Brust & Emma Bull, Freedom and Necessity. (which EVERY SINGLE ONE of you must read. RIGHT NOW.) - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod

Our son Lincoln is firmly in the #TeamNoPants camp now. He pulls off his pants within minutes of getting home from daycare and strongly resists putting his pants back on after diaper changes or when getting dressed in the morning. This brings his personal #TeamNoShoes and #TeamNoSocks triumvirate into completion.
We have to take his shoes off after strapping him into his car seat or he gets fussy. He takes care of the socks after that. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
He's also #TeamNoHat. He and Wifey do battle daily on that front now that it's Winter time. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
He's also #TeamNoCovers . Can't stand to sleep with anything covering him at night. We have to wait until he's asleep then cover him up. Even then he will have kicked the covers off by the time morning comes up. He's very hot natured like his Dad. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
My mom always half-jokes that babies and toddlers really don't need a lot of fancy clothes because they end up just wearing a diaper and t-shirt most of the time. - Katy S
THIS! So this. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
It used to drive me nuts to see kids running around with just a diaper on. Now I totally understand. LOL. I finally know the struggle. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Guess Lincoln is #TeamDiaper, then. :-) - Corinne L
The lack of pants also provides easier access to the diaper when it is time to change it. :) - Katy S
Honestly I think he could take or leave #TeamDiaper. They're a means to an end. He seems to have to have a fresh diaper for number 2. I thought Wifey was joking when she first pointed this out. It has proven to be hilariously true though. He's much more likely to do that minutes after you've changed his diaper than at any other time. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
Sounds kinda like Peter MacNichol's character in Ally McBeal, who always wanted "a fresh bowl" when he would go to use the unisex bathroom. :-D - Corinne L
One of us. One of us. #TeamNoPants - Marie
I can't help but wonder if he shows his #TeamNoPants colors while at daycare. So embarrassing. How do you explain place/time context to an 18 month old? - DB, Lil LB's Dad

Happy Valentine's Day, Beloved Codpeople!
In honor of my codpeople, I named a Madagascar hissing cockroach at the Bronx Zoo. Its name is "Coddy." I thought the zoo would send me something more interesting than a thank you email that I could share here, but I guess not. Here are details on the program: If you ever visit the zoo, remember to look for Coddy among the squirming, hissing mounds of roaches on display. - Stephen Francoeur
Coddles...? - Julian
Here's video of some of Coddy's friends and family at the zoo: - Stephen Francoeur
Sorry, Julian, too late. The deed is done. Coddles is a good name, though. Next year. - Stephen Francoeur
Thank you, Stephen! I hope you won't mind if I skip the video. - laura x
I'm sure Coddy will understand and won't take it personally. - Stephen Francoeur
So, I could name a roach anything, huh? If I wanted to name one Stephen Francoeur, I could do that. Or name one after my younger brother, which might be the perfect sibling birthday present... - ellbeecee

"The San Gabriel Valley ("The 626″ if you're under thirty, "The Chinese Beverly Hills" if you're over forty) is ideal ground for a dumpling crawl." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
This list looks amaze but I would be dead if I ate all that. - Marie from iPhone
There's about ten spots on the list. If your party of four only orders one plate at each spot and splits the dumplings, then it's a big, big day but doable. - Andrew C (✔)
Been to all except the last one. Some I haven't visited in years because I thought the quality went down. We’ll have to go back and try them again. At the plaza one, you can get your dumplings faster if you go to the restaurant nearby and order dumplings with your food. But there are good dumpling places that still have carts. I'd say my most local place is better than the ones listed on Valley. - Anika from Android
So annoying....there's a dumpling place in Rosemead that's nearly perfect, but they keep changing the name of it. It's in a strip mall next to a spa. I almost cried the first time I went there. - Anika from Android

'Bomb' That Choked Atlanta Traffic Was Student Art Project - NBC -
"Georgia State University profusely apologized on Wednesday for a student art project that Atlanta police treated as a suspicious package, leading them to close one of the nation's most jampacked freeways for 2½ hours before they blew up the installation. And there could be more of them around the city, authorities said Wednesday. Atlanta police said they received no advance notice that art students were going to tape a cylindrical object Monday to the outside of the 14th Street Bridge, which feeds both Interstate 75 and Interstate 85 as they converge in the heart of downtown Atlanta. In fact, Assistant Police Chief Shawn Jones said, they didn't know what they'd blown up until Tuesday — the next day." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"The suspicious device turned out to be a student pinhole camera that was part of an art photography project, Georgia State said — one of 18 that students dotted around the Atlanta area as part of a class assignment. The cameras were described as 12-ounce cans wrapped in duct tape. Wednesday, police in Hapeville, near Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport, reported that they called... more... - Jessie

I've been tasked with investigating the library resources needed by an EdD program. I plan on doing some poking around other EdD programs, of course, but anyone got any suggestions of places to start?
An EdD program in what? - Lisa Hinchliffe
I'd find universities with top programs and then check out their LibGuides - worth a shot. - Jen
Accrediting bodies for those programs may list required resources. - Marie
I had the same question as Lisa, as different programs will need different resources. And ditto on accreditors. Our College of Ed is accredited by state agencies but also two teacher preparation accrediting bodies. Your COE should know who will be looking at them. - kaijsa
the specific niche hasn't been determined yet. Thanks for the reminder about accrediting bodies - I know which ones we're accredited by, so i'll check on that too. Thanks! - ~Courtney F
I can't imagine how you'd answer this in the abstract - the requirements of the EdD in Educational Psychology are quite a bit different than the one in Global Studies in Education (to take an example from my campus which offers both). - Lisa Hinchliffe
