second day with the new weblog

Hi. Okay so welcome to librarian.net at ibiblio! the reason this is not already at the new servers may be partly my fault. In any case, I said “come hell or high water” so I figured I’d add some content here. It’s a funny thing about that New York Times article. They included the text of my signs, not the signs themselves, and they cited my weblog, and not my name. Weirder still is they changed where I had written “National Security” and hyphenated it? I mean I agree that any publicity is good publicity, but it was just so weird.

Speaking of New York, and libraries, this understated library club looks like it might have some fun parties.

PATRIOT Watch: Karen Schneider has told me that this is a week for rejoicing. According to her, all state library associations have now passed resolutions against the PATRIOT Act. You wouldn’t know it by looking at ALAs website, color me surprised. Oh wait, here’s the link. How could I have missed that?

The “stack of random literature” that comes with the Librarian Action Figure includes a book on Bulgarian Flan, and the Devil’s Dictionary. [thanks jen]

Oh Lord help us. Tori Amos considers herself a librarian.

You have no idea how unglamorous it can be sometimes but if you think of me as a librarian from a different dimension, these are books that come to me in sonic form and I have to stay focused or I am manipulated. [thanks josh]

Georgia’s only accredited library school may be closing. The Black Caucus of the ALA is starting a letter writing campaign [thanks bill]slightly unclear on how prescription medicine works in this country. A nice idea, stupidly put.
