Jaclyn aka spamgirl

for some of us, librarian is an identity, not just a profession
Grandparent babysitting FTW!
Our library now has an Open Access Team! (Now part of librarianing, not service, thus worth more for P&T). And I'm co-chairing! Yay us! #OA
What is the functional make-up of your team? We are starting one as well. - Jen
Sorry, Jen, do you mean who's on it? So far it's the librarians who volunteered when it was a task force of our library faculty group. I don't know if it will change yet. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
That moment when your chair mistakes you for the other Asian tech services librarian. *sigh*
do. not. like. - Rachel Walden
good grief. - Marie
She came by just now to clarify. She was confused, but she also did need to meet with me. I'm putting it down to her being discombobulated with the earthquake craziness. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
earthquake craziness? (also, good on you for going gentle) - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Yeah, the whole south side of the building (which houses admin, IT, special collections, ILL, access and tech services, in addition to the book collection) is closed. All is craziness. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
1st we saw the baby skunk in the backyard. Then it moved to our porch, where it's investigating the nest that fell off a beam. #wildkingdom
Thought it was Sunday night for about 30 minutes after movie ended. You can imagine my happy dance when my husband told me otherwise. :D
You guys, a mtg with the deans about OA went better than I could have dreamed. Library looks fwd-thinking. Fingers crossed it continues. #oa
*kermitflail* yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay! - RepoRat
I'm not saying everyone was on board, but I expected waaaaay more negativity. Even the main opponent thanked us for showing him new things. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
Rawk! - Marie
During the fire drill we just had I answered a prof's Q about LexisNexis & got a Q about being unable to open PDFs in IE. #ERlibrarian
Anyone else having problems downloading PDFs from ScienceDirect, or are we just lucky?
Someone else on Twitter said they were seeing this too. Just what I needed right before vacation. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
No problems here. I hope it was a glitch. - kaijsa
Seems to be fixed. Phew. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
Oh, hey, look at that. .@IRDLonline #yay
So exciting! I'm even jealous -- I couldn't even apply, due to scheduling conflicts. This looks like such an amazing opportunity! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Yes! - Derrick
yay! - RepoRat
Borked computer = what should I do with myself? Turns out electronic resources librarians need electronic access to do things :/.
Imagine that! :-) Hope it gets fixed soon. - Kirsten
IT still hasn't arrived. Maybe I can send them the work I'm supposed to be doing instead? - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Only if you want it to come back a complete mess. - Kirsten
Or start taking it apart. They might respond faster next time. :) - Kevin Johnson from Android
It's back! Also, how crazy is it that IT offer network space/backups? Also also, back up your data! - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
Well, the good news is that, barring asbestos, we'll likely get to open the stacks sooner than we thought. Don't know whose photos these are, but linked from a friend's FB post.
Oh wow. :( - Marie
Oof. - Kirsten
oh, so sorry to see that. - barbara fister
Oh no - that looks like a major re-shelving project. - Jen
Whoa. - Galadriel C. from Android
Hate to think what it'd look like without the bungee cords. :-( - Deborah Fitchett
Wow. Best wishes for the re-opening. - kaijsa
It's not every day you see a Bugatti.
If Google is going to ID & link to OA articles and our link resolvers can't...why wouldn't we send people there?
Zero questions on IM reference in 2 hours. Dear students: You know our spring break is *next* week, right?
Judging by how shaky I am, that was *not* a decaf. #wheeeee
Also how meta is it that I know someone who researched how many vowels are repeated in twitter to measure level of excitement? - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
That moment when you find out about a possible credit card breach at DMV - but you've already had that card replaced by another breach. Yay?
Anyone else getting weird errors in IEEE, or are we just lucky?
Let me see if we are lucky, too. - Joe - Systems Analyst
Search for "information". Page not found. Yeah, that is a problem. - Joe - Systems Analyst
Advanced search not found, browsing to journals not found. Summon not finding specific articles. - Joe - Systems Analyst
Reported to IEEE, posted alert to website. And now it's time to go home. Le sigh. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
I also reported it to the IEEE, and I would guess many others. - Joe - Systems Analyst
Hey Rod - are you from Watsonville, or am I crazy?
Heh I wonder if my uncle took that picture. He was an avid photographer and historian. - Rodfather from Android
1st tweet: "psyched i got spamgirl! now to figure out this whole twitter thing..." from 2008. Most early posts about Edinburgh weather :P
Also one about playing with Friendfeed and how addicting it looked. Little did I know... - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
Wish I didn't have to leave. .@gchilton This is super important, I hope we continue this conversation - I want to help #erl14humanterms
Reading ER&L scholarships I can't tell you how many students said "My uni doesn't offer any ER classes" #erl14 #erl14humanterms
Use TERMS & NASIG core competencies to advocate for staff training. Successful at her institution.#erl14 #erl14humanterms
Realizing how many of my session choices come down to "This affects me right now" vs "This is coming, oh crap." #erl14
Why don't reviews in Choice etc include accessibility given how many people need that info for purchase? - John Vincke #erl14
because it would embarrass a lotta publishers - RepoRat
That moment someone you know tweets and you realize they must be in the same room. .@editorex
Dang, do I go to @gchilton or @orgmonkey & @OAJoe session?! Surfeit of choices. #erl14
Knew I'd see @ranti at the accessibility session. :) #erl14
Thrilled to hear that there IS an accessibility session. They're not always well-attended. And Ranti's great :) - Lily
I would like to point out that I'd uncoupled twitter from here and it's just started importing anyway. Weird.
I did the same thing, months ago. And yet my tweets keep showing up. Clearly, we've missed a setting! - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
You are forgiven. :) - Steve C
Vouch for each other. Strategically say no. Institutional problems shouldn't have to be solved by individuals. #erl14
Ended up without lunch plans for #erl14. Anyone else in same boat?
