The things I will miss about Open Library

Fri, 25 Nov 2016 21:25:16 +0000

I put it on my newsletter and up on TILT (my online magazine? Whatever that is) but I left my job at Open Library this week. This is bittersweet since I left because I could not get the hours to … Continue reading

Tue, 15 Nov 2016 16:25:48 +0000

Upcoming events and reflections on newsletters

Mon, 19 Sep 2016 14:48:24 +0000

self serve support, what I learned about using numbers in facebook’s hashtags

Sat, 06 Aug 2016 21:24:02 +0000

I support Open Library. We don’t offer a lot of support but we do offer some. If you don’t understand a thing, a person will help you with it. Nowadays most “free” products only offer self-serve help pages or forums … Continue reading

Advocacy topics: stats + stories + good design + good tools

Fri, 01 Jul 2016 20:08:02 +0000

I’m wrapping up my Tools for Library Advocacy class this week. I’ll probably be writing down some of what I’ve learned trying to teach a CMS-evading online class–what worked and what doesn’t–but I had a small outline to share. The … Continue reading

Before I forget, I’ve actually started a Tiny Letter, also called TILT though it’s a bit more essay-ish than these posts. Subscribe if you like this sort of thing in your inbox. Infrequent messages, well-designed and lovingly delivered. Been thinking … Continue reading

praxis and passports – Two very different talks in one long day

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 18:10:07 +0000

Now that I’ve stopped being webinar-resistant (I thank lots of meditation and more free time), I’ve been enjoying getting to give a lot of different types of presentations. Thanks to the oddness of scheduling, I did two very different talks … Continue reading

If I ran the zoo/world/library

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 20:59:23 +0000

I had a great time at the Hooksett (NH) Library talking with the Merri-Hill-Rock Coop about library stuff on Wednesday. Cab Vinton from the Plaistow Library asked me what I’d like to do. I decided to break out of my … Continue reading

TILT – today in librarian tabs

Sat, 04 Jun 2016 20:11:57 +0000

I need to close some tabs on my browser so they are here. 1. Are you someone from a “diverse” group who gets frequently asked for your opinions about how to help organizations “get diverse” enough so it seems like … Continue reading

What about those 15%?

Tue, 24 May 2016 15:07:19 +0000

I’ve been refining my library talks lately. The one I’ve given a few times over the past year has to do with the 15% of Americans who still don’t use the internet (no phone, no home internet, no work internet, … Continue reading

What I did during National Library Week

Sat, 16 Apr 2016 01:59:50 +0000

I have a bunch of little jobs and I think a lot of people don’t really know what it is that I do. My main jobs are doing Drop-In Time in my small town in Central Vermont, helping people borrow … Continue reading
