Academic Librarians - Are you following YikYak?
? clearly not... - ellbeecee
what the heck is yikyak? - Sir Shuping is just sir
Nope. - L.A.M.B. tbh from Android
Who in the what now? - Catherine Pellegrino from iPod
I checked it out earlier this year and then uninstalled it after a few days. Creepy place full of douchey bros. Not a cool place. Lots of k-12 schools are banning it because of the heartache it can cause. For example: When I tried it in Manhattan, I found tons of awful posts from NYU and Columbia students. - Stephen Francoeur
good lord. based on that article, wouldn't touch it with the proverbial ten-foot pole. - RepoRat
oh crap...i did hear about yikyak and blocked it out of my mind because the early press on it was so poor, much of the same reasons for what occurred in the article stephen linked to - Sir Shuping is just sir
Yep. What I see when I'm at home (local high schools, other colleges) is different than what I see at work. It's interesting/useful to see what's going on when they're having real dialogue there, but the high school age stuff is abhorrent. - Julie Kane
Tl;dr me about this, please? - Marie
YikYak is an app that uses your device location to show you anonymous posts by people in your vicinity (not sure of the range, maybe a few miles or so). You can post your own anonymous comments. - Stephen Francoeur
Merci - Marie from iPhone
I am now. Second post is a vulgar joke that mentions the library. - Steele Lawman
I can't even handle monitoring mentions on Twitter, I'm pretty sure this will kill me. - Meg VMeg
I downloaded to check it out. It's somewhat amusing. - Andy
I don't mean to brag or anything, but... I saved a life earlier this morning. I put that earthworm back into the dirt instead of letting it dry out on the concrete.

When you are staffing the Reference Desk how do you remain approachable? Do you continually scan the room with your eyes looking at anyone who might glance up in a moment of need?
Also: How do you resist working on the pressing things you need to work on? - FLEMING
Our reference desk is in the middle of a giant Learning Commons. Would it be best to swivel the chair around on a continual basis, or just scan forward as people enter the library? - FLEMING
Generally, I put off things that are "ref desk friendly" for doing on the ref desk. Check email, fiddle with libguides, book selection (back when that was a thing). In part this works because over the years I developed the system, and also because over the years I've learned that whenever there are things I *must* get done during that hour, it's one of those hours mad with students. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
I work on the heavy stuff that isn't all that fun and expect (HOPE!) people "interrupt" (distract me with something I would much rather be doing) ... plus my relief at being asked a question and the hope in my expression helps with the passers-by. - Aaron the Librarian
Scanning the room regularly, yes, noticing passers-by and making eye contact w/a smile. I wouldn't swivel continuously as that could be distracting to students (and sickening for you). See if there's a direction most people seem to approach from and face that way. As for what I work on....well, I usually alternate between checking email and playing on my iPad. I often correct small... more... - ~Courtney F
When I'm at the ref desk I stand the whole time (just a 2-hour shift, don't feel bad for me). I don't do anything but stand there, walk around the computer stations, unjam staplers, organize a drawer or two, and make eye contact with as many people as possible. It's hella boring but I've been told I seem approachable. Of course that could be because I'm short and adorable and have nothing to do with my actions. :) - Marie
Candy or cookies? - Joe
I love this thread! I try to maintain a balance between looking up and smiling at people and getting things done. I also browse news websites and my "library" twitter account. (Is this bad? If yes - don't tell me.) I find that some clients apologise when they approach me which is sad. Also my desk and computer are so tall which means that people sometimes can't even see me! (Chair is up as high as it goes.) - Fiona Jones
When I was a ref desk person, I'd do my work but retain constant awareness of movement in peripheral vision. Any person coming even vaguely in my direction I'd glance up properly and check for eye contact, and then bright smile and greeting. - Deborah Fitchett
You guys have a ref desk?? What century are we in?? Kidding so do we. - aaron
I do light work, and as Deborah mentions, look up and smile whenever there's peripheral movement. - Regular Amanda
(today I read this as "when you are sniffing the ref desk …" so now I can't pay attention) - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Mmmmm.. Smells studenty... :p - FLEMING from Android
Liberal application of Axe Body Spray. - Holly's favorite Anna
*remembers the smell of folks at a ref desk where I used to work that shall remain nameless to protect the wonderful, but unshowering, students* - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an

I thought I was technically savvy, but trying to borrow an ebook from SFPL seems to have completely defeated me. It's "on loan" to me, but I can't read it and I can't return it. So that was a "blio" format ebook, and I tried borrowing one other, this time in epub format, where I CAN read it, but I don't know how I can return it.
Because the latter book doesn't even show up either in my checkouts/on loan. - Andrew C (✔)
Now you know why librarians drink. - holly #ravingfangirl from iPhone
Usually you can't return e-books early. They're set to automatically "return" themselves on the due date. - Marie
I've gone through (seemingly?) every option and tab and I just cannot figure out how to read the first book. - Andrew C (✔)
you can return books on Overdrive, but not on freading. I haven't tried blio. - Christina Pikas
I just looked at our documentation, and you should be able to return it. In the Blio app, display your titles using the list and you'll see a "RETURN" link next to library books. In the AxisReader app, you may return it early by clicking the arrow near the title and then looking for the "return" button. - holly #ravingfangirl
The book doesn't show up anywhere in my AxisReader app though! Except in the embedded browser, where SFPL claims I have it checked out. It's just fallen through the cracks: one system thinks I have it checked out but the other system doesn't know about it. - Andrew C (✔)
lol, welcome to our world - Meg VMeg
You are technically savvy, I'm sure. It's the ebook vendors that are broken. - Steele Lawman

Cod signal! Does anyone have this book via EBL? If so, would you please test your full text access & let me know what happens?
Sorry we don't have it to test. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Hang on, we've got it. - Marie from iPhone
It's not available for online reading or for download. Is that what u see? - Marie from iPhone
Yep. - maʀtha
Is it because of the price or is it now deemed a textbook? - Joe
No idea - maʀtha
I will check ours tomorrow morn to see what it says. - Joe
Danke - maʀtha
We have a record in our catalog, but when I click the link I get a "this book is not available message." Screen shot: When I run a search in the EBL admin module for title or author or ISBN, I can't locate the book. - Galadriel C.

Your all-time favourite soup:
I has a butternut squash soup this one time—it put me over the top. So, squash. - Micah
Clam chowdah - Bren from iPhone
French onion. Or possibly tomato with a bit of cream. - Jennifer Dittrich
Clam chowder as well... or fish. - Ken Morley
It was laksa, but yukgaejang is slowly taking over. - Anika
French Onion. - Spidra Webster
tomato basil - Big Joe Silence
Carrot noodle. - David Lounsbury
Split peas. - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
Wait, why are you asking these personal questions. WHAT IS YOUR HIDDEN AGENDA? - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
I can't decide. I kind of just love soup. (though I will shank a bitch for some avgolemono most days) - Hookuh Tinypants
Double tomato soup. (reg tomatoes and sun-dried) - Corinne L
Probably some variant of squash soup. But I like a lot of other soups, too. - John (bird whisperer)
Crab Bisque, chili then beef stew. - SAM
Tomato basil - Jenny
Soupy sales - Todd Hoff
Clam chowdah +1 - Stephen Mack
this rosemary farro garbanzo thing I make is heavenly. I never turn down cream of asparagus. But I do just love soup. - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Sun-dried tomato with walnut. - L.A.M.B. tbh from Android
French onion. - Katy S
Cream of Mushroom or New England Clam Chowder. - April Russo
Manhattan clam chowder, I guess. It's the default soup at White Spot, an iconic BC chain. - Andrew C (✔)
New England Clam Chowder most of the time; not necessarily because it's the greatest soup I've ever had, but because it's usually the most consistently good. My favorite kind of soup is probably actually either beef & barley or good old chicken noodle. Unfortunately, it's just as often that I find those that I don't like as it is that I find good ones. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Clam chowdah or lobster bisque. - Kristin
My Mum's pea & ham. - Melly - #TeamMarina
French Onion if I'm eating out. Kale, sausage, & potato (like the one at Olive Garden) if I'm cooking. - Lisa L. Seifert from iPhone
Broccoli and cheddar. Followed very closely by clam chowder. - Heather
Dahl. Does Dahl count as a soup? - Brent Schaus from FFHound!
Barley. I love soup in general, but I love soup with barley in it extra much more. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
Cioppino! - Marie
I love all sorts, but my new favorite is mulligatawny soup. :) - Jenny H. from Android
Hot & sour. Or if available, steamed chicken soup. French onion or lobster bisque if going Western. - rönin
Carrot & ginger soup. - Margot from Android
Jenny wrote "mulligatawny"! \(^_^)/ - Eivind
I do love soup in general, but Uli's split pea is my favourite. - Kirsten
I think I just grew a couple inches. But the things that Kiki makes - soups, stews, and the like, are all so very good. Love split pea, lentils, and tomato soups (all my own recipes). - Uli
I can't pick between split pea & bacon or French onion. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
This thread has spurred me to make a soup this weekend. Which one should I make?!? - Marie
some variant of red lentil soup with sizzle sauce. - kendrak
Marie, whichever you go with, pics please. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!

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.
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. This is such an unbelievably awful user experience, and since there is no pre-purchase warning, poor customer service. - 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? 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: - 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 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. - 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
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
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 I didn't want to post right before the holiday weekend. - Galadriel C.
checking in RE posting, has the post posted? - maʀtha
Not yet, I'll post here once it has been sent! - Galadriel C.
Doing that "Refer to the print edition" search in our ebrary library came up with 97 titles, 94 of which were published by Liberty Fund Inc. - that phrase is usually on a page in the front matter, between a cover page and the title page. I only mention that because it doesn't seem like that would be important content. That said, 3 other titles are missing images for sure. - Grumpator
Huh. So, like, that was the only page missing? Weird. (Who removes the half-title page just 'cuz?) - RepoRat
Yeah - though here's one (The Free Sea by Hugo Grotius) that has a cover page, "page intentionally left blank," series title page, then 3 pages "refer to the print edition" (pages iv-vi), then the real title page. Seems so weird. What could possibly be on those pages that can only be seen in the print edition? - Grumpator
In most print-book designs, two of those pages would be blank (because verso) and the third might be an epigraph or a dedication or something? I can't imagine why they'd take out a freakin' epigraph. Oh, wait -- possibly a frontispiece? Lack of image permissions could be a thing. - RepoRat
Seems to be. I just found one, same publisher, that seems to be missing an image in chapter 10, so their omissions are not limited to just Front Matter content. Which means that my list of 97 titles just became a bit more significant. - Grumpator
We've got 115 hits for "Refer to the print edition", a good number from Kent State University Press (and Liberty Fund, Inc.) Most looking like images. - Meg VMeg
I take it back: the largest proportion is Liberty Fund, followed by maybe 10 from Kent State, a handful for Wesleyan, and single records from Routledge, Wayne State, and University of Georgia. Hilariously enough, this is the first time that "sort by publisher" has been helpful to me. - Meg VMeg
6 books from Greenleaf saying, "To view this chapter, please refer to the print" - Meg VMeg
Ok folks, I've sent the post of to ERIL-L and LIBLICENSE-L. In the post, I focus solely on our experience with the Ebrary e-book missing chunks/chapters of core text. Please respond to the post with your own experiences as you see fit and let the signal boosting commence! - Galadriel C.
Thanks for letting us know. :-) - YvonneM
You're most welcome! - Galadriel C. from Android
There was no follow up discussion on the list. Did you get any direct emails? - Joe
I got two direct messages with one indicating that they were going to reply to the post Friday. If folks subscribe via digest, they may not see the post until tomorrow. - Galadriel C. from Android
On off list reply shared that EBL gave a completely new reason for why the content was missing from the EBL version of the e-book: The publisher accidentally sent the wrong file. - Galadriel C.

So she's chair of the committee responsible for setting the tagline, but she doesn't have the authority to do so. Typical. - DJF
The actually work is appointed to the tagline subcommittee. - Galadriel C.
I like this entire thread. - maʀtha
is tagline one word or two? I think it should be "tag line." What style guide are we referring to? - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an

I have no clue either. - Amit Patel
I only really know that joke from the Simpsons too. - Andrew C (✔)
