Mon, 28 Nov 2016 18:46:03 +0000

The Charleston Conference 2016 At the Charleston Conference I tend to seek out sessions that focus on liaison- or user-related issues, but a dominating topic of recent years–user preference for print or electronic books—seems to be moving out of the spotlight, and so I was able to turn to presentations dealing with collections and scholarship […]

Tue, 22 Nov 2016 16:05:10 +0000

I had a great time in Charleston this year, including a dinner with Derrik (he says “Hi” to everyone).

Zepheira was promoted as a service that uses BIBFRAME […]

This year’s meeting of the Southeast Music Library Association was hosted by our neighbors at Duke University. Lots of thought-provoking presentations! DIGITAL HUMANITIES A colleague at Duke who teaches both English literature and music appreciation noticed that her students often misidentify sounds — but that there was no dictionary to refer them to, as she […]
