Didn't you love that old slogan? "Hit him again, lady. We don't like door-blockers either." - Meg VMeg from Android
Yes, that was awesome. And my exact sentiment. - Stephen Francoeur

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.
