The Most Dangerous Game - Library Style

Sure is quiet around here...

I subscribed to a couple of fun librarian-centric blog RSS feeds. If you haven't seen A Librarian's Guide to Etiquette, you're missing out on some funny.

In, Blending

Librarians should not wear clothes with pictures of books on them. This "library-camouflage" may hide you as you wander in the stacks, but it makes you a target for nerdhunters as soon as you walk out the library's front door.

23 srovalf and then some!

I just completed the survey and thus, my 23 Things journey is concluded. I'm actually sad! This was a fun project.

I'll try to keep this blog going with library and technology related posts. If you want to start following me over at Livejournal, the topics are more personal there, but it's a public journal, so read away! There is a link over in the sidebar.

Good luck, everybody!

Elijah is a bit tipsy, but off to a good start. 30,000 households down, and it's only 6:30!

The Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny

This made the rounds a few years back, but I still find it quite awesome.

(Heads up, there is some cartoon violence.)

Twenty Two! <3

My top 5 Favorite Things and, no, I'm not talking about brown paper packages tied up with string, though I love those, too...

(image yanked from

1. Google Reader (hearts and love and rockets and Care Bear stares...)
2. Reading others' posts. You guys are awesome.
3. The Common Craft Show (I'm using it all the time now.)
4. My hopes and dreams for a library FB or MySpace page.
5. Social media, as a whole, really. Web 2.0 Show and Tell. Is it snack time yet?

So, huzzah for the 22 Things we've learned and the 23rd yet to come!

Twenty First Thing

Is it poor form that I'm feeling kind of whatevs toward Thing 21?

The University of Minnesota's calculator is pretty cool. It's a 2.0 version of the information search process. We were discussing these in school a couple of weeks ago. I argued that students should be taught to be information literate but not in a way that they are so aware of it. Information literacy should be incorporated into every lesson kids are taught in school.

That being said, I still think these calculators would be cool for people who have a need to see the progress they are making on a school or work project.

Thing 21, I'm just not that into you. Let's just be friends.
