Wed, 20 Jul 2005 15:59:00 EST

Here's another perspective on the Chronicle of Higher Education column on job candidate blogs.

The whole exhibit hall is a bit of a mystery to me.

6-3-05: SLA 2005: comics

Fri, 03 Jun 2005 13:26:00 EST

I was purusing the excellent list of Toronto bookstores on the Toronto Chapter's SLA 2005 site, and was pleased to see quite a few comic book stores.

6-3-05: format vs. content

Fri, 03 Jun 2005 13:15:00 EST

Previously, I wrote about the problems of confusing format with content distinctions—in that case, lumping all graphic novels in with popular or genre fiction. That got me to thinking about Gormangate and the lesser Croningate again.

6-2-05: save the pay phone!

Thu, 02 Jun 2005 11:56:00 EST

With the prospect of travelling without my cell phone (because it will be too expensive to use in Canada), a Christian Science Monitor report on efforts to preserve the pay phone caught my eye.

Wed, 18 May 2005 11:50:00 EST

OK, so izzle-speak is so old that even Snoop Dogg's over it. So old, in fact, that librarians have discovered it.

5-6-05: when it all comes together

5-3-05: NIH Public Access Policy
One of the most relevant parts of Michael Carroll's talk for me was his discussion of the NIH Public Access Policy.

But what I really need to know, now, is what to tell my clients, most of whom receive funding from NIH.

The labor-intensive nature of my posting is good for contemplation, but also acts as a safety valve.
