Hi. The LiveJournal RSS feed is up and running again.
Hi. Sorry if you were using the LiveJournal RSS feed and it broke when I changed formats. Regrettably, I have nothing to do with it, and LJs RSS feeds are sort of orphans in terms of support. Feel free to try one of the other feeds, linked above. Also, I have personally checked all the links on the links page and added a few sections, one on tech and one on library school. If anyone has suggestions for good resources in those sections, please let me know.
What do you do when you follow all the steps an organization gives you to avoid spam and you still wind up getting some? You ask a lot of questions. Emma Jane details her back and forth with ALA about junk mail she received when they sold her name to mailing lists before she had a chance to set her communications preferences at all. Upshot? Her name and address were sold before she even got her membership card and could login to set her preferences. Uncool.
Dear editor, do you really think no one has ever written a newspaper story about a library and used the phrase “checking out” in the headline? Austin TX seeks their own Big Beautiful Library, with retail space. [ thanks alisha ]

Hi. Haven’t gotten a lot of feedback on the CSS setup, so I am assuming it’s mostly okay? Also, today is my birthday. Also, I got my first royalty check, it was for $38.
It is still okay to bring your gun into the library in Michigan, says the State Supreme Court. [ thanks tom ]
Meanwhile, in Kentucky, it’s okay to wear your cross to work again also. [ thanks taylor ]
“Hey Hey librarian, tell me what they’re reading” one of the great hits from the PATRIOT Act summer tour. [ thanks beth ]
Attractive redesign over at Rogue Librarian. Would we expect anything less?
Hi. Please join me in the awkward phase between pure-CSS implementation of this website, and the move to a new webhost where it will be maintained much more elegantly with Movable Type, not the hinky cut ‘n’ paste that I do now. If you can’t read the new site, or if it looks unbearably awful, please let me know. My new job starts on Monday. I’m not sure why I thought this would be a grand time to mess with the website.
The NPR librarians have a few words to say
It came to my attention recently (2015) that there weren’t easy links to get to my older posts pre-September 2003. Hope this is helpful to someone.
