#introduction Hi, I'm Anna. I do #acquisitions and #eresources things at a small liberal arts university. In my spare time, I #sing in two women's choruses, play #softball on two teams (one of which I manage), volunteer at a community #radio station, and watch/listen to #StLCards #baseball games. I also like #weightlifting, #boardgames, and #beer. #hashtagasm
This morning, as I was getting ready for work, and after a couple days of sluggish productivity, I decided that before I even triaged my inbox as usual, I would tackle all of the email action items I had punted from yesterday. Sort of an "eat that frog" approach. So, after first browsing the unread message subjects and senders to make sure I wasn't ignoring something from my boss, I jumped right in. All done now! Feels like I accomplished so much, but it really wasn't that big a deal in the end.
@annacreech the IGeLU/ELUNA analytics working group wins a literal trophy for their contributions to the Ex Libris support documentation. They should get paid instead.
This is my first big user group corporate conference and I have some feels. The plenary sessions are just big marketing presentations with little actual value to me. The breakout sessions are librarians explaining how to make the system do what they need and what pitfalls to avoid. I feel like we should be paid to attend, not the other way around. We’re doing the R&D for them.
I took Facebook off my phone, and I’m kind of surprised and pleased by what happened. http://eclecticlibrarian.net/blog/2019/03/i-took-facebook-off-my-phone/
Library societies and organizations that don't provide usage data or are still on COUNTER r3.
It's been a relatively quiet week in my inbox, which means lots of time for COUNTER report gathering. I find it very satisfying, though not a task I want to do all the time. #ERLibrarian
When I woke up this morning it was raining, and then snowing big fluffy flakes, then sleet/raining. The rain stopped a couple hours ago and now the sun is out. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ #rvawx

glammr.us is a space for folks interested in productive conversation about, well, galleries, libraries, archives, museums, memory work and records. It is pronounce “glamorous” as our work are often charmingly or fascinatingly attractive, especially in a mysterious or magical way. Sometimes it is also full of excitement, adventure, and unusual activity (oh, yes). It is also inspired by Toys’R’us to showcase the fun playful side of glammr.us tooters. But you don't necessarily have to only post about GLAMMR-related topics, bring your whole self. Talk about fun things you saw, your exciting day or even your struggles.
