Thinking about whether our library needs an entry in Wikipedia. Anyone have good examples of academic libraries with their own entries?
I would say the Geisel Library is a good example - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - ellbeecee
Thanks! That is a good one. I found more by using the category link in Wikipedia for University and college academic libraries in the United States. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Stephen Francoeur
So I got one started for my library: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Stephen Francoeur

Roger Schonfeld, "What Role(s) Should the Library Play in Support of Discovery?" Ithaka S R - http://www.sr.ithaka.org/blog-in...
Pull quote: “It is hard for many of us to take a critical perspective on whether we are making the right level of investment today in a traditional strength like the library as search starting-point. But budgets are not unlimited and there are opportunity costs associated with these choices. For example, if librarians are holding on unduly to the search starting-point role, are they doing so at the expense of new discovery roles where the library’s impact might be greater? These choices have consequences for our communities and over time our libraries’ strategic position within them.” - Stephen Francoeur

If the rain is beating against my window at work (yes, I realize I'm lucky just to have one), it's pretty ugly outside.

Looking for source for Alan Kay quote: a computer is an instrument whose music is ideas. (Heard quote from @GardnerCampbell last week).
This book http://books.google.com/books... attributes the statement to: A. Kay, “Computer Software,” Sci. Am., 251 (1984): 53. - bentley
Thanks! It doesn't have the exact quote but I can see why someone might reference it in relationship to the quote. The person who I heard repeat the quote (Gardner Campbell) told me on Twitter he found it here: http://www.scholastic.com/browse... - Stephen Francoeur

"Faculty members who were present at the meeting said it was then that Norberg began to cry. A handful of faculty and staff told Spectator that they perceived that Norberg’s departure was prompted by a series of administrative decisions for the library that were in conflict with Norberg’s vision." - Meg VMeg
"'I feel like she was really hobbled, that it was impossible for her to get anything done. She was just disrespected,' a Barnard library staff member, who asked to remain anonymous to protect job security, told Spectator." - Meg VMeg
"The librarians were not consulted, though the administration did include faculty and students at several listening sessions, a Barnard Library & Academic Information Services staff member, who wished not to be identified to protect job security, said, adding that some senior library staff members attended these sessions, but felt that none of the sessions was dedicated to hearing the... more... - maʀtha

Ugh. Faculty who let this shit happen on their watch better not be all up in my grill about how they loooooooooooove libraries. - RepoRat
And what if the librarians would have been fine with fewer books, or potentially *excited* about fewer books? They should have been consulted about...something? Even now (according to FB/friends/sources), they don't know what the building will look like, whether/where they'll have offices or cubicles, etc. It was all settled without them. - Meg VMeg
