Talk to me about how instruction gets scheduled at your library. Specifically, gen ed instruction that doesn't go through a specific liaison... Our librarian who had been coordinating this is retiring, and we're trying to figure out a new system that's a little more official/easier to track than "email the librarian coordinator"
surely there's an easier way of doing an overlap analysis in Alma than having to search for each and every one of our electronic collections (databases) by hand.... am I missing something? I want to see how Database Z compares to our 300+ existing databases and how unique the content is.
just took a survey from Lexis Nexis on how our "transition" to Nexis Uni went. Since we haven't actually transitioned due to a lack of needed information, that's all I commented on in the survey. #hotmessnexis
Received a request from a library student to visit a library with dedicated e-resources personnel so he can "discuss, take pictures/video, and detail the overall ER processes and workflow". Video? Of what? Not me, I hope!
so.... anyone ever tried to do research on the Church of Scientology? I can't imagine there's much they've allowed out? Specifically a student wants to research "the topic of "fair game" within the Church of Scientology"
new question about that EBSCO error message! Has anyone ever successfully corrected the info and found the article using that particular screen? I'm going to make some suggestions for how they should make that screen more useful, but I wanted to know if anyone's ever succeeded with it first.
E-resources libs (and others) - do you have a database or resource request form? if so, can you share it with me? Screenshots are cool if a link's not an option. My email is courtney.fuson[at]belmont.edu
Today's research appointment says she has two possible topics for her master's thesis. Topic 1 - how to incentivize businesses to offer job placement to women being released from prison. Topic 2 - how to get individuals on a team to perform at their best most efficiently and effectively. When she contacted me a couple weeks ago, the only topic was the first one. This should be interesting.
Fellow e-resources and/or serials librarians! we have a volunteer with some data analysis skills and we'd like to have her look at our big deal journal packages to see if they're worth it. However! I don't even know where to start - anyone got a project plan or article or something like that that I can borrow to get us started?
