Finally back to work. Throat still feel scratchy a bit, but much better than the last few days.
- Discussed the possibility of moving to virtual server for our LOCKSS servers. Systems peeps seemed to incline with this option now after they realized that, yes, this is gong to be a perpetual project.
- My morning meeting was cancelled so I use the time to read an article that has been opened on my browser window for quite sometime: A Review of Argumentation for the Social Semantic Web by Jodi Schneider (@jschneider), Tudor Groza, and Alexandre Passant (@terraces)
The thing about staying home nursing this cold is: I got plenty of time to read the accumulated unread emails in my inbox. Also read some more online articles.
- Administering ASIS&T mailing list: subscription requests, moderating posts that get stuck for moderation for whatever reason.
- Testing out off-campus access for some e-resources, either through ezproxy or the institutional login/shibboleth.
- A fellow librarian sent wide email queried about BeBook and then asked me about the accessibility aspect of it. Apparently a faculty asked him about using it to access and read our e-resources, especially ebooks. The faculty has had difficulties reading articles and ebook on his PC monitor. Unfortunately, e-ink display like that is not optimized to access our e-resources directly and read the ebooks. Refered him to our RCPD unit (Resource for Persons with Disabilities.)
- Worked a bit on ER&L website. Added the preliminary schedule.
- Helped my friend reviewed his documentation on crediting images used for an exhibition
More cold snafus. Staying home. But still have enough energy to work on some professional development stuff.
- Replied to a a few emails about our library twitter account, some blog post question, and the GIST workflow toolkit for the interlibrary loan.
- Finished the code4lib program individual page for the Thursday (last day of the conference).
- Received approval for MPOW to participate as a group in ALCTS webinar: Organizing the Evaluation of Electronic Resources. w00t!
- Composed first draft for LITA National Forum proposal.
- Use the extra time to read interesting articles tweeted by by my fellow twitterers:
- Read a proposed project (“Fostering and Promoting Accidental Adjacencies”) documentation for the MSU Creative Initiative (I joined the Creativity, Social Knowledge Platforms, and Forms of Scholarly Inquiry cluster.) This is going to be an interesting project.
- Phone conversation with MOPW Digital Project Librarian (AKA @ksattler) on our blog settings and the upcoming mobile web project
