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.

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.
@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."
