ALA11 takeaways

July 2nd, 2011 · 1 Comment · Uncategorized

So I just posted this whole thing about how to win at conferences that you’re attending conferences for personal/career reasons, and I promptly went to an ALA where I had work responsibilities and it was different and I’m not even totally clear on how it was different.  Except that I worked for, like, 25 hours [...]

#libmadness round 2

March 25th, 2011 · 4 Comments · Uncategorized

Voting open now, through midnight Eastern tomorrow. Some contests I’ve got my eye on: the children’s librarians smackdown (Rollins/Batchelder); cataloger v. cataloger (Dewey/Cutter); and the sword & sandals & scrolls matchup (Eratosthenes/Callimachus). And also, of course, all of Andy Woodworth’s MARC madness, where voting is now open; once I write this post I’m going to [...]

March 19th, 2011 · 8 Comments · Uncategorized

Hi, Internet. Sorry I’m behind schedule on the Library of Congress bracket; my daughter’s been sick this morning. If you’re jonesing for more bracketology, do check out Andy Woodworth’s MARC Madness! I’ll get the LoC bracket up later today. In the meantime, why should ignorance stop anyone from voting? While it has been really interesting [...]

answering Andy about ALA

February 21st, 2011 · 9 Comments · Uncategorized

(Can I resist the alliterative title? No.) Andy Woodworth asks the entirely reasonable questions about ALA reformation: But on this point, I have questions for my fellow young librarians. How is it slow? How is it bloated? How is it not meeting your expectations or needs? What should it be doing? This is something I’ve [...]

for Andy: librarian entrepreneurship

February 6th, 2011 · 16 Comments · Uncategorized

Andy Woodworth has a lively discussion going on about librarian unemployment. (Have I mentioned how much I envy his discussion-starting skills?) This has me wanting to start a discussion about librarian unemployment over here, what with my being an unemployed librarian, but I can’t think of any way to get that going other than “let’s [...]

four leadership lessons (and three questions) from ALA Midwinter

January 13th, 2011 · 6 Comments · Uncategorized

My head is racing with thoughts from ALA — you know, “my brain is full, may I be excused?” Little to no hope of ever digesting them all but, in the spirit of reflective participation in the Emerging Leaders program, I’d like to make a spirited attempt to write down thoughts on leadership: as Maureen [...]

feedback, please: help me navigate ALA?

July 13th, 2010 · 3 Comments · Uncategorized

I realized at ALA10 that one of my projects needs to be figuring out how this frankly byzantine organization works. (Or, at least, how some relevant subsets of it, like LITA and ACRL and NMRT, work…[*]) Then I was stumbling around through the blogosphere and realized that the ever-thoughtful Andy Woodworth had already asked the [...]

50 cent/robot/owl city/africa is the future

February 3rd, 2010 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

I promised a meatier post on Wayne Bivens-Tatum’s post, so here we go… * I think Andy is very much right that people are the future. Surely one of the big lessons of the Internet in general and web 2.0 in particular is that people are the killer app — technology that lets us interact [...]
