It's so cool when someone writes the article you've always wanted to read, and I'm so excited to read Gordon Daines and Cory Nimer's bibliometric analysis of American Archivist elischolar.library.yale.edu/jc

Posting your SAA section's call for election nominations in another section's listserv is so tacky I might need to logoff before I pass out from the steam under my collar right now

there used to be a fake "drones in libraries" conference website that led to a github repo where you could stand up a fake "{dumb trend} in libraries" conference in 5 minutes. Anyone else remember this and can point me to it?

The article that took PSU co-authors and I over two years to write mapping archives and climate change exposure is now in press. You might want to have your favorite beverage at hand before you read it doi.org/10.1016/j.crm.2018.03.

I have so many questions about the NYTimes ISIS files story, but perhaps the most is "if these documents are still in the possession of journalists, what mechanisms are in place to ensure they are being protected so that they can be used as evidence in the future?" nytimes.com/interactive/2018/0

This is a really lovely story about an INSECT COLLECTION CURATOR and now I realize next time I get new headshots I need to have an insect in it with me edgeeffects.net/oboyski/

So within my local feminist crew, one of our members recently brought up a metaphor from a feminist organizer she heard speak that I can't stop dwelling on in light of GLAM work.
