Country girl in the city. All about the woowoo. Twitchy trigger finger on the ಠ_ಠ. Whenever I feel like I'm being pathetic, I stop and be awesome instead.

Thanks all! I'm still kind of in shock even though I've kniwn for about a month now. I applied for the Berkman fellowship back in December, heard nothing until I got the call saying "you're in" I feel very fortunate.

"Student author? Eh. They're not gonna sue you." Least. Risk adverse. Panel. Ever.
RT @libshipwreck: #library patron: do you have one of those things that bites paper? Me: A stapler? Him: That's it! Me: Actually, I like your term better.
Sort of loving this "shoot them all and let God sort it out" method of repository collecting.
Jim Heller says throw up everything and wait for the DCMA notice. They've received zero.
New reason for prof hesitation: they would be embarrassed if their work received DCMA takedown notice.

Speaker spent 25 years in publishing & 10 in libraries. Publishers see library publishing as something that just fell off the turnip truck.
They typeset their articles to match the Elsiever pagination and appearance.

Most of the authors that use their publishing are tenured or emeritus.
Speaker: Why do libraries only catalog stuff the pay for and not our own publications?
Libraries _are_ the market for scholarly works. Occupy scholarly communication!
They also sell library published books - for a profit, not just cost - which they don't share with author. Hmmmm. This seems to be the opposite of what library publishing should be? I could be wrong.
Oh speaker is anti CC licensing and thinks CCC is still one of the good guys. Well now. Those are interesting choices.

At a conference. Started to enter breakfast room. It was like "too many cooks" but with librarians. I beat a hasty retreat and just had a protein bar in my room.
SO MANY LIBRARIANS SO EARLY IN THE MORNING. - Sarah G.
I have flat out told people in the morning that I am not ready to deal with anyone yet. - sglassme
I wouldn't have been able to do that. I would have just threw coffee at them and ran. - Sarah G.
