My book is in 100 libraries.
That is a great accomplishment! - Steve C Team Marina
I do find the wording of this URL interesting... http://www.amazon.com/Night-S... - Joe
this book contains 'unexpected Laura Crossett' ;-) - Marina's Godmother :-)
Checked out 7 times here! - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
No one expects Laura Crossett, surprise is her greatest weapon. - Blake
I know at least one library that has it that is not in worldcat. - Katy S from iPhone
*wonders who will play him in movie version* what? it could happen ... FF could be a kind of pseudo Greek Chorus - MoTO: Team Marina
Katy, yup, my library has it and isn't in Worldcat. I assume there are others. - laura x from iPhone
So I think you could safely say "my book is in 100 PLUS libraries." - Regular Amanda
...and no MINUS libraries! - Aaron the Librarian
And it's on my kindle. I checked Wyldcat to verify that only 4 WY libraries have it, and it's true. BAD FORM, Wyoming librarians. - kaijsa

For those of you who have or are implementing Alma - How have you migrated you e-journals Knowledge Base to Alma? We're going from SerialsSolutions to Alma. So far, there's a spreadsheet we could fill in line-by line of resources/titles/holdings, but we're really hopeful that some automated manner of migrating data is possible.
(liking so i can find responses again) - weelibrarian
Well that sounds awful. Keep us posted. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Much of the Alma migration utilizes such spreadsheets. Can you extract data from SS in the format you need? - Jen
We were on SFX, so didn't have to do that, but yeah, I'd try downloading the info from SS and going from there. - Kirsten
It seems like I had heard that SS can send you the data in a spreadsheet format that you can then send to Alma. - ~Courtney F
We can extract a spreadsheet out of SS, but because Alma and SS use different names for resources (e.g. "EBSCO Academic Search Premier" vs. "Academic Search Premier") it becomes much more complicated -- a very manual process that utterly baffles me as in how can this not be more automated? Ex Libris is saying we have to complete their spreadsheet and that they can't do anything with the SS spreadsheet. Courtney do you know/are you able to share more about Alma doing something w/ the SS spreadsheet? - Galadriel C. from Android
Hey Galadriel - have you been over to to the Alma FF room? Deborah I think migrated from SS and may have help for you. Migrating to Alma is not a very pleasant process. I hear that life on the other side is good though. - Jen
WITH GREAT DIFFICULTY AND MUCH LAMENTATION. - Deborah Fitchett
I can in fact tell you a heap about how we did this and what to avoid and what problems can't be avoided. Might get a bit longwinded for here, unless everyone else is interested too, but email me - deborah.fitchett at lincoln.ac.nz probably the best address for this one. - Deborah Fitchett
Deborah - can you post to the Alma room? - Jaclyn aka spamgirl
Just the fact that there is an FF Alma room makes me feel a little better :-) Deborah, I will *definitely* be in touch!!! - Galadriel C.
(How does one get to the Alma room? I searched groups w/o luck.) - Galadriel C.
G- I sent you an invite - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Jaclyn, can do. - Deborah Fitchett
Got it; thank you! - Galadriel C. from Android

My grandfather passed away 20 years ago this November. At his wake, my family had blown up a bunch of pictures of him to display, and there was one picture from when he was in his 20s that looked EXACTLY like me. My grandmother walked up to me and said, "It's amazing, isn't it? And now you know what you will look like when you're dead, too!"
She also pranked the funeral home director: "WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU EMBALMED HIM? I DIDN'T WANT HIM EMBALMED? Just kidding!" - Zamms
You have quite the grandmother! - lris
Yeah, she's pretty fantastic. When she turned 80 she told everyone she reached the age of integrity so she could now say exactly what she thought about everything. I never noticed the difference. - Zamms

If our users don't migrate away from RefWorks after seeing this login screen, I have NO sympathy for them at all.

Pret' good warnng, there. - barbara fister
does the seconds box visibly decrement? - RepoRat
Yup. It's generated by javascript, so it's a live countdown to next august. - DJF from Android
When I sent a mass email out to the local RefWorks users (everybody who's logged in in the past year), I got a complaint from one grad student that we didn't give her enough notice. - DJF
She can keep her account, no? Or does that only happen if you graduate from a school that currently subscribes. Or did they drop that "it's yours forever" thing? - barbara fister
alumni from schools that currently subscribe... but I don't know how tough RefWorks is going to be on people. - Christina Pikas
Can you get the Mission Impossible music to autoplay.... kidding! #sorrynotsorry - John Dupuis
It's "forever, as long as the school subscribes" - DJF from Android
I need to show this to folk at MPOW -- I think we're a couple three years away from crossing this bridge but it's coming. - Heather
It really does take a year, because you need to start the school year with the librarians talking about "not RefWorks", and give lots of time so that people can pick a good time to transition their writing from one system to another, including folks who are writing books or dissertations. - DJF from Android
What are you offering instead of RefWorks? - Holly's favorite Anna
Wait, what? They gave an official date? - Meg VMeg
Oh, you are canceling it, it's not a switch to Flow. - Meg VMeg

Trying to figure out why such huge discrepancies between our Summon instance (only searches for articles and has no records from our catalog) and our soon to be live Primo instance (searches for articles and includes all records from the union catalog for CUNY). A simple search for "history" in Summon yields 33,947,198 records. The same search...
in Primo yields only 5,679,243 records. Assuming that we've activated all the same article databases in Primo as we have in Summon, does anyone know for a fact about real differences between the way Summon and Primo run searches? Does Summon perhaps default to full text searches, while Primo doesn't? Does Summon's index have records at the article/entry level for dictionaries and encyclopedias in places like Credo and Gale Virtual Reference Library while Primo is only at the book title level? Something else? - Stephen Francoeur
Summon does full text searches for the content that it has the full text of. This includes searching the Hathi Trust collection for the books you have in your catalogue, even if you only have the print and don't have access to the Hathi Trust collection. - DJF from Android
Interesting. Didn't know that. We don't have any catalog records in our Summon instance, though. so there must be something else going on. - Stephen Francoeur
Oh, an idea. Maybe I need to go into the Summon admin module and turn off the citation-only records in Summon and see if that makes for more comparable searches. - Stephen Francoeur
Hmm. That didn't do anything. Maybe I have to wait until tomorrow to see if the citation-only records are now gone. But even if they were, we're still talking about orders of magnitude differences in Summon vs. Primo. - Stephen Francoeur
And why is it that in Primo you get slightly more search results when you're signed in? What exactly is being hidden from you when you aren't signed in and run searches? - Stephen Francoeur
lol WHAT ARE THEY HIDING - Meg VMeg
I suspect that some of the companies that share records with Ex Libris put in their license a restriction that the records are only visible to authenticated users. Does that sound like a reasonable assumption? - Stephen Francoeur
I think that's true. In the activation wizard there are resources that are restricted for search and restricted for delivery. - Zamms
(liking so I can come back and consider this) - weelibrarian
Seems like Summon does a better job than Primo of offering equivalent records for items indexed in various EBSCO databases. So if your institution is heavily reliant on EBSCO subscriptions, maybe Summon is the better service (or EBSCO EDS). - Stephen Francoeur
I had so many questions like this about Primo that MFPOW and I were put under a gag order. And we didn't get Primo. #6YearsAgo - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Are you on the Primo listserv? The discussions of the past week are not even being able to reconcile results comparing Primo to Primo. But, I can answer the "what are they hiding" - or at least say that I recall it is some EBSCO content you get logged in that you don't get logged out. (Let's hope I'm remembering that right!) - Lisa Hinchliffe
TO me the quest8ion is "waht do you want your discovery service to do?" Personally, I want my discovery layer to INDEX ALL THE THINGS and RETURN ALL THE HITS... whether the user is signed in or not. Once the user selects a result and wants the fll text, then the authentication check happens (and the user logs in if not already logged in). none of this "well it's indexed but you can't... more... - Aaron the Librarian
Lisa, I am on the Primo mailing list and was just now searching the archives. I found someone mentioning that Web of Science records are only visible if you've signed in. I haven't found any other specifics yet. I've been on the Ex Libris site, but they seem to have a lot of documentation hidden away in a place that only folks with support logins can get to. Aaron, I must say that I... more... - Stephen Francoeur
I'll add to Aaron's list - I want ALL THE RECORDS FOR THE SAME ITEM TO CONVERGE INTO ONE. Which was/is also a WoS issue with Primo (I don't know was/is since we no longer have Primo). - Lisa Hinchliffe
to make that vision work, we need a) open metadata, and b) unique identifiers for all the things (so we're not trying to dedupe via metadata fields, which is slow and error-prone). the former is... mostly feasible? given that most publishers at least put TOCs online? the latter would be easier if DOIs weren't expensive and red-tape-laden, or if they didn't have such an Aura of Holiness that publishers don't look at (cheaper, open) ARKs and PURLs. - RepoRat
Yes, but ultimately we need vendor-to-vendor agreements that let the products USE SAID INFORMATION FOR THE BENEFIT OF USERS. Oh, was I shouting? - Lisa Hinchliffe
Open metadata means f*** the vendors. *g* - RepoRat
That only works if the metadata includes the fulltext. Otherwise can still limit de-duping by contract in order to allow discovery vendor access to fulltext for search and ranking. - Lisa Hinchliffe
'Nother good argument for OA as well. *g* - RepoRat
I'd consider it a win if we could at least get open metadata. Here's a relevant post from last year that delves into these issues: http://openbiblio.net/2013... - Stephen Francoeur
Hmm Primo sounds like Summon then with regards to WOS showing? EDS will show that a "highly revelant" record exists but only if you login then you can see the details. My understanding is Summon is a big fan of the dedupe and combine all things into a super record approach. But other discovery services and more importantly A&Is, don't like the idea because the super combined record approach means it's difficult for them or users to realise the contribution the A&I records adds to the process. Sigh. - aaron

GAH I JUST WROTE TO MY REALTOR AND ASKED HER TO PUT IN AN OFFER GAAAHHHHHHHH - lris
PICS! - Meg VMeg
LOVE THE AIRLOCK - Meg VMeg
It's cute! - Meg VMeg
Nice! - bentley
Watch, now somebody else will out-bid me, just when I finally made up my mind - lris
nope they won't. you'll get it. also i've not done homerepair before, but watched a lot of rehab addict and i'll help operate sanders or something :) - Sir Shuping is just sir
You're going to have to hire somebody to do lawn care. And regrade the side of the house around that window well. - DJF from Android
Yep, and yep. - lris
Exciting!!! - Marie
Wow! The airlock is great and the bathroom looks like it was just redone. I also like that the kitchen cabinets have simple, flat doors as I was just noticing how much gunk collects in the grooves of mine. - Galadriel C. from Android
So explain to me the whole airlock thing? I've never seen one before. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
^ - Marie
Love the grain on the built-ins in the bedroom. If you get re-landscaped, you can save on hiring someone to do mowing, etc. (Owen Dell showed slides of a landscape he designed for a guy who wanted to do absolutely NO maintenance. He had pictures from years later and the guy really had done no maintenance and it looked terrific. http://www.owendell.com/Books...) Good luck! - Spidra Webster
And which room have you chosen as the yarn room? - Hedgehog
Oh, that's cute! Love the built-ins, and that enclosed front porch (totally giggling over "airlock") will be very, very nice in winter. - Kirsten
In my world, airlocks are mudrooms, if that's a word you know -- they give you a space in which you gear up and gear down for the outside weather, without bringing said weather into your foyer/house. So you go out into the airlock/mudroom to put on your boots and snowpants and coat and mittens and hat and scarf, all of which can then, later, be taken off there, and dry, before you open the door into your house. When it's -20F outside, and you're covered in snow, this is AWESOME. - Jenica
It is the bane of our existence that our house here has no mudroom/entryway/airlock (this is new to me as a term-always used mudroom) of any sort. Not even a hall closet. Yes, it's Virginia but yes, we have weather and clothes. Stupid, stupid builders. - Julie Kane
Huh, in my South Dakotan side of the family, a mud room includes a shower, because they're farmer stock and they come in from the hog farm or the fields and need a shower before entering the house proper. - lris
Justin and I dream of a house with a workshop for him that connects to the house via a mudroom with the laundry and a shower in it... Work with nasty chemicals and metal filings and sawdust, then drop all your dirty clothes and take a shower before coming into the house proper. PERFECTION. - Jenica
The house I grew up in had a breezeway that attached the garage to the house. The first room after that was a hallway that had, on one end, a full bath, and then the laundry area. We definitely used that area to divest ourselves of filthy barn clothes, coveralls, etc. Horse muck did not belong in the house. - Katy S
Oooooo. All of those things sound amazing. Our long-term plan is to expand and cover/enclose our deck, add a mudroom there, and an open deck off of our bedroom. And finish the basement, with bathroom. Sigh. Someday. - Julie Kane
Oddly, out here, laundry rooms are sometimes called mudrooms--e.g., ours is between our "breakfast nook" and garage. I like the airlock idea for climates where it's more frequently needed... - Walt Crawford
Creeping charley is very good at holding soil down. I'm all for it. - maʀtha
I like the closets and cabinets very much - maʀtha
so much wood! i see lots of potential in the sun room. it's cute! - kendrak
you're gonna love that screen porch!! it's also cat heaven!! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
I've read through this three times trying to find your post that your offer was accepted. Well? (The house is really, really nice, so I hope that it was.) - Mama Lawson
I don't know yet if the offer was accepted, and the realtor expects we won't know until early next week. The suspense is killing me. - lris

"American history?" Srsly? - Stephen Francoeur from Android

"Stress in the workplace?" Just try managing this library's electronic resources. I'll tell you all about stress in the workplace. - Stephen Francoeur from Android
"Library hours? WRONG SEARCH BOX, braintrust." - RepoRat
WTF? Maybe you should see someone real, and not just try to figure it out yourself. - Christina Pikas

"'Messianic claimants'? Go talk to a librarian; we've been fielding this assignment every semester for YEARS." - Catherine Pellegrino
Did you mean "United States relations Nigeria" instead of "Dear blessed sir, I would like to find out more about the relationship the United States has had with Nigeria over the years. Any help that you can provide will be greatly appreciated. THE LORD BE WITH YOU!" - Zamms
"controversial topic" Did you mean "gun control" "assault weapons" "open carry" "same sex marriage" "health care" "minimum wage increase" abortion - ellbeecee

He's about nine weeks old and early signs indicate that he and Calvin may get on famously. - Jason P

Is he a Maine Coon? Cause he has a big M on his little forehead. And he will be a substantial cat. - ♫Robot Chicken, Trainer♫
He could have some MC blood, Maurice. (He's a shelter mutt, so who knows.) We're going on the theory that he might be a Siamese/tabby mix, given his points and the stripes on his face, and the blue in his eyes, but he definitely doesn't have the Siamese voice. I think he may be a big guy too. He eats like a horse. - Jason P
Siamese tabby all the way. He looks just like my friend Sarah's cat did, as a kitten, and we know she was a S/T mix. He also has that slight cross-eyed look that siamese cats get. Miles has it, too. ;) - Jenica
oh em gee the cute! cannot stand! - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
He's very outgoing but still often shy about being petted or picked up. Yesterday I caught him napping, picked him up to cuddle him, and he went "eeeeeeEEEEeeee hey this is okay PURRRRRRRRRRR", so I have high hopes that he's going to end up being very sociable. He follows Calvin around the house wanting to play now, and Cal seems to like it. - Jason P
It takes a few days before they get over OMG UNFAMILIAR PLACE. He's gonna be just fine. - RepoRat
Oh, totally. He was in "high-speed exploring mode" almost immediately. No fear. - Jason P

Seriously, you guys....stop making infinite scroll webpages.
Especially when the contact information is only at the bottom of the page. This happened once. I would see it for just a second and *poof* it was gone in the scroll. - bentley
Betsy - I remember Facebook being like that for a long time. There were links that only appeared in the footer, and you could never get to them because of the infinite scroll. Those were times when I was actually thankful to have a slow connection. Not sure if Facebook is still that way or not (I haven't needed to use those links for a few years). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I call that "Sisyphean scroll". - Deborah Fitchett

My ideal day these days: Wake up at 8. Poke around on internet & drink iced coffee. Go running. Poke around on internet while eating large arugula salad and drinking seltzer. Work on interesting research project (without concrete deadline) while random shows/movies are playing on tv....
Drink beer while continuing to work on interesting research project, poking around on internet, and chatting with BFFs while random shows/movies are playing on tv. Order in amazingly cheap and delicious food and chat with BFFs. Drink beer while continuing to work on interesting research project and poking around on internet (again). Bedtime at 11. - Meg VMeg
that is my ideal day too. only replace running with swimming. - jambina

Yeah, and today there are lots of action movies on, all featuring Denzel Washington, so it's kind of like there's one really, really long Denzel Washington action movie playing in the background, which continuity is surprisingly soothing. - Meg VMeg

Shuping: Yes. Yes, it is. Steele: "1997 called, and it said you could keep its web design; it doesn't need it back." - Catherine Pellegrino
...I think I'm more horrified by that than the 1997 design. and the fact that apparently she added the visitor counter in 2007. when means that she probably picked up "building your first webpage" 2000 & "internet for dummies: after dark" 1993. and that this is in the code: <meta name="GENERATOR" content="Mozilla/4.5 [en] (Win98; I) [Netscape]"> & Code for IE 4+ ok...now i'm more horrified by the design than the font. - Sir Shuping is just sir
Well, I don't know about her library, but our library didn't weed "building your first webpage" 2000 and "Internet for Dummies: After Dark" 1993 until well after 2007, so one can hardly blame her. ;) - Catherine Pellegrino
yeah, that's actually about when we weeded ours as well :) - Sir Shuping is just sir
Visitor counters are so adorable. It must have been so exciting to see the numbers go up! - Megan loves summer

How much I love Katy Perry for stealing the phrase, "eye of the tiger".
And if any Kacey Musgraves fans have missed this, it's so fucking great: http://www.youtube.com/watch... - Meg VMeg

I love Katy Perry, though that surprises me every time I acknowledge it. I generally disdain the manufactured pop radio tastemakers, but she's just so damn versatile and always seems to have this look in her eyes as though she letting this happen because she wants it, and she's in control, and she's having a laugh with us. - Holly's favorite Anna
