I work at the Colorado School of Mines Arthur Lakes Library.
This was mentioned in the news the other day that the Atlanta bombing was July 27, 1996. (25 years +2 days now.) That was day 1 for the events we went to see in Atlanta. We saw table tennis that day, and maybe water polo later on. I can't remember our exact schedule. I do remember that tickets to the USA vs Cuba baseball game at the old Fulton County Stadium were $7 a ticket.
This is old news at 3 weeks, but I learned of it yesterday. This will probably impact textbooks more than their library services. https://www.insidehighered.com/quicktakes/2021/06/16/new-owner-mcgraw-hill
I'm just glad they're nowhere near Aviation Week anymore.· Christina Pikas 2
Considering we have all the Access Products we can afford (medical textbooks)...this is going to be absolutely crappy· hedgielib 1

Some LSW peep sightings in the wild. I've got a Tay and a Salo. This was in a recommended readings folder.
which Salo? hoary old Salo 2009 or evil Salo 2013?· LibSkrat 3

Hoary old Salo 2009, then. (2013 is How2Scuttle.)· LibSkrat
Mine is basically a rewritten blog post that summaries wat others have Said better. Today I see it cited mainly in context of the fairly obvious observation that many faculty feel more ownership of their RG, ssrn etc accounts than IR which partly explains why they don't want to put any effort on IRs but will spend time curating other sites.· Aarontay 1
The Climate Crisis Is Worse Than You Can Imagine. Here’s What Happens If You Try. "A climate scientist spent years trying to get people to pay attention to the disaster ahead. His wife is exhausted. His older son thinks there’s no future. And nobody but him will use the outdoor toilet he built to shrink his carbon footprint." https://www.propublica.org/article/the-climate-crisis-is-worse-than-you-can-imagine-heres-what-happens-if-you-try
The reason for the season is this. The earth is tilted 23° 26' 11.570" (23.4365472133°) on January 1st 2021, 0 TT. However, the poles move up and down a couple of degrees every 40,000 years. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Axial_tilt.

Hey everyone, looks like I am going to be working on the Colorado School of Mines Institutional Repository. I plan to be moving from part-time faculty to full-time by this Fall. (Maybe even July 1). So, I would be half STEM Reference/Research Librarian, and half working on the IR. Job title question -- Should that title be Digital Repository Librarian? Dig. Rep. Manager? Institutional Repository Librarian? IR Manager? Something else?
In googling something, I came across this statement at the bottom of the first page. Has anyone ever seen this before? --- "In response to a complaint we received under the US Digital Millennium Copyright Act, we have removed 1 result(s) from this page. If you wish, you may read the DMCA complaint that caused the removal(s) at LumenDatabase.org."

I wonder why Nature Publishing Group has an issue with diversity.
Inexplicable.· LibSkrat 1
Some of their Holtzbrinck OA stablemates charge even more--2020 fees for five Adis, Springer Health titles were a cool $6,000. Not to mention "hybrid" titles. The two biggest potential revenue producers in gold OA are both from Nature Publishing: Scientific Reports ($44.67 million in 2020) and Nature Communications (a mere $35.3 million). I'd charge them $6,000/day plus expenses for consulting,. Raven should probably charge more than that.· Walt Crawford 1

A couple months ago, there was a little water flood on and right next to my desk -- dripping from the ceiling tiles, and it splatter water all over the place. It ruined this paper sign that I have prized for years and years. Should I throw it away? Should I send it to an archivist for restoration?
I ate yogurt that expired three days ago. If I pass due to the transgression, I will try to mention all of you in my will.
Dude, I regularly eat yogurts that have been sitting in my purse all day. It's pre-loaded with good bacterias.· kaijsa 9

Watching the 2011 movie Contagion. Jeez this movie was close to predicting COVID.
Yeah, I made a point of rewatching it last year. Lots of yikes.· bentley
Some of the hospital scenes were filmed in a shuttered hospital where I’d had surgery a few years earlier. When the local newspaper announced they’d be filming there, I texted my sister, “Jude Law in my hospital room! (maybe)”· bentley 3
