I'm a systems librarian, meaning that I glue together data (preferably open) from lots of different systems (also preferably open).

@schoeyfield I re-read my catalogues + paper from — I said it would be possible for search engines to take advantage of it, but didn't claim that it would happen ("further study" etc)

@ahitchens I'm going to try to make it to one or both. But a few different things are afoot that might conflict. It would be good to see you too!

@Bibliocracy That's terrible. No pension? Not even a DCPP? WTF were they thinking? Well other than complete self-interest...

@AvenMcMaster You are awesome, Aven!

@Libraried Could be that MARC->BibFrame transform (there are quite a few) missed some use cases and needs to be improved! BibFrame 2.0 itself is still being revised & extended; see for example

@mikecommito I get it! I will be happy to help, if you do find the time somehow; the students could even grant a CC license retroactively. You're doing great things and the students are lucky to have you!

@mikecommito Cool! Could your students share the videos under Creative Commons-Attribution (CC-BY) rather than the Standard YouTube License? CC-BY would let others download, remix, and repost the video, as long as they credit the creator, & reduces dependency on YouTube.

@adr No CS degree for me. Just 8 years at the IBM Software Lab writing about, testing, and developing in Java, C, C++, Perl, PHP, Python, JavaScript, etc.

Participating in consortial services while consortial members are on strike is troubling. Concerned that I am replacing their labour and undermining their position, but it's complicated, because only some of the people that provide the service at that institution are on strike…
