Darn both of our conference rooms are booked during the time of the Falcon Heavy launch. I'd love to see that on the 80" tv.

John Cook on Twitter “the citations in mike flynn’s book are precise and rigorous” Th https://twitter.com/johnjcook/status/958482564737576960 .... this is typical, but cringeworthy to librarians. Military people probably not shocked as generals haven't written their own stuff (except those with PhDs) for > 10 years, maybe 15.

nice: instead of answering my questions about how MPOW was figured into a new institution-wide policy (and I asked repeatedly) they went directly from the office of the president of the institution to the director of my lab and our CIO. whatever!

Books24x7 users - are your iphone people able to download and listen to the audiobooks? I think they're just MP3s? I have an android. Our people are saying they can only listen to audible audiobooks?!?!
Comment
apparently it's just about impossible to just grab an mp3 file and listen to it on an iphone? ‎· Christina Pikas

I don't have access to an iPhone but I'll try to see what it's like on the iPad I have at home. ‎· Stephen Francoeur
Comment
I don't use Books 24x7, but I listen to audio files on my iphone all the time, mostly my own research (interviews, etc.). You can stick a file in Dropbox and listen to the file (what I do for my own files), use iTunes/Music app (like for ripped CD audiobooks), or a third-party app like Bookmobile that plays all kinds of audiobooks. ‎· kaijsa

Skillsoft said people use their app for those. (I hate HATE audiobooks, so I didn't try it.) ‎· Meg Vmeg

You guys: I was browsing this journal article (http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/asi.23970/full) - and found that they cited a comment on my blog! So cool.

My kids' school system wants me to be mad at the governor for limiting how early in the year school could start and how late in June it can end. I'm fine with it actually. They had so many days off mid-year in previous years. Now I'm like: cool!
Comment
they removed a random day off the schedule in February for the extra school day in January - yay! ‎· Christina Pikas

I get so frustrated with my department: me: aren't you looking at the enterprise search logs to see what the failed searches are? them: no, people are stupid and make typos me: can I see them - without names or identifiers or time stamps - to see if people are unsuccessfully looking for my stuff? .... get a copy. all kinds of reasonable searches in there that should actually return stuff (short term disability, file size sharepoint, [department] export control, self service portal) . I can't even.

OMG. bigger institution library systems keeps insisting we get software from their shared drive. we're not on their network. we never have been. SIGH. telling us "check the Q drive" is NOT helpful!
Comment
place i worked at colleagues at other library would tell us that too from time to time and i'd have to explain again and again that we didn't share that space. it was only one specific folder ‎· Dani (aka ashuping)

@libskrat any pointers on: https://list.indiana.edu/sympa/arc/chminf-l/2017-12/msg00003.... "A professor who's nearing retirement would like to donate his magnetic tapes--yes, those things 10-12 inches in diameter. Of course, we don't have equipment for reading them, and as far as I can tell we don't even give much thought (as an organization) to preserving, copying, and/or reformatting older electronic media. But the data (EPA funded research) is undeniably irreplaceable. It includes measures of environmental radiation in the vicinity of a now decommissioned and dismantled nuclear power plant. Any suggestions on constructive handling of this material? Of course, my dream is that there's some eager, ethical, trustworthy, and reliable group that could read and reformat the data, then post it openly in a repository--but I don't know of any offhand. Thanks in advance for your suggestions."
Comment
Oof. It's worth asking local IT first, because old equipment hides in the weirdest places, but tape drives in working condition tend to be hard to find. I suspect they'd have to outsource to a data-recovery firm a la Gillware or We Recover Data, and that'll be seriously pricey -- figure $100 a tape. ‎· LibSkrat
Comment
Since this is EPA data, one thing I might do is get in touch with the folks who have been rescuing 45-censored EPA content off the web. They'd be motivated to find a way to help. ‎· LibSkrat ‎· 1
