Not only am I hosting 7 family members at my house for Thanksgiving, but I got us all matching t-shirts to wear to dinner. Yes.
Sigh. - sglassme
Mr. 13 has proclaimed that he is not wearing the shirt. - Sarah G.
It isn't a holiday if someone isn't upset. - sglassme
What's on the shirt? - Corinne L
What is really going to be fun is when Grandpa's OCD gets huffy at Mr 13 for not wearing his shirt. BTW, does the restaurant have a liquor license? - sglassme
Yes, it has a bar. I suggest pre-gaming, tho. - Sarah G.
Love the shirt. - Corinne L
I don't know what Mr. 13's problem is. - Sarah G.
I just showed P the shirt. I think he is very glad he is not coming up, too. - sglassme

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
I would guess you would have the same problem going the opposite direction? That said I am told if you want to move to EDS they will accept SS or Sfx holdings exports. Not having done it before seems to good to be true. As you said we talking about different knowledge bases even with compatible formats they might not match packages so it might end up very manual. - aaron
Aaron, I'd say it's probably too good to be true, though I was told the same thing when they were trying to make the sale. My guess is that EBSCO just has their folks do the manual translation, which doesn't make me all that more comfortable with the process. - Holly's favorite Anna
Since EDS was mentioned I thought I’d respond to clarify some things. I am the VP of Discovery Strategy here at EBSCO. I am glad to see the interest in this topic – and Aaron is 100% correct. EBSCO does allow for automated leveraging of holdings information from SFX within EDS. The following was published in a library journal article some time ago, and should shed some light on this.... more... - Tamir Borensztajn

Apparently pranksters got into the library last night and TP'ed the circ and reference desks:

If I may toot my own horn for a moment, I'm a bit over the moon about being invited to speak about the Canadian Government's War on Science at the York U Science & Technology Studies Seminar Series in October.
awesome, John!! - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
The page for the series is here: http://www.yorku.ca/sts... It's pretty serious stuff. - John Dupuis
WOOOOOOOOOOOOO! - RepoRat
woot and congrats!!! - Sir Shuping is just sir
that is pretty cool - Ulrich von Liechtenstein
Thanks! Of course, the easy part of agreeing to do the talk. The hard part comes in October when I'm all, "Yikes, now I actually have to do the damn thing!" - John Dupuis
dude. you GOT this. - RepoRat
It's today! Wish me luck! - John Dupuis
Good luck!! - Hedgehog from Android
Good luck! - bentley
Great news John! - Elizabeth Brown

I repeat myself: dude. you GOT this. - RepoRat
Thanks everyone! It went pretty well, if I do say so myself. Slides here: http://bit.ly/stsdupuis - John Dupuis

Today is apparently the day for "So when our documentation says 'The sky is blue' actually we meant 'Ia! Ia! Cthulhu Fhtagn!'"
Thanks, since all we have to do is think the phrase... we're all doomed now :) - Aaron the Librarian
Considering some of the cases I've been dealing with (and also the unrelated six meetings I have scheduled for today) that'd quite possibly be an improvement. - Deborah Fitchett

Working on a post about usage statistics. My conclusion: "I have a lot of information that ultimately means very little." ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Paraphrased from a vendor admin site: "A session concludes when a browser closes or the website has been idle for five minutes." That might be why the vendor session total is 4x the total we came up with. - Zamms

My book is in 100 libraries.
That is a great accomplishment! - Ulrich von Liechtenstein
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: #TeamMarina
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

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
Ha! - lris from Android
Can I like this thread more than once? - Catherine Pellegrino
I love your grandmother. - laura x from iPhone
