This morning was spent discussing "unlabeled" vs "untitled" in our software description., which has now lead to me creating instructions on how to use the data uploader and software spreadsheet to create/edit records instead of using Mimsy for software cataloging.

A bunch of floppies were imaged in 2007 but then cataloged in 2009. Sometime in between the catalog numbers were mixed up on the disks and now I'm trying to sort out this confusing mess.

friends I have a question for you: a curator at MPOW wants to know why so many books have a letter underlined in the last name. They passed along the image below with G in Gladstone marked.

We haven’t been able to give him an answer, just that potentially it helped identify an author quickly. Do y’all have any thoughts or insights?

It took way too may archivists/registrars to figure out what to a call a particular box, but we figured it out!

Turns out the file names and the carriers aren’t exact matches and our interpretation of handwriting differs.

I have to match these disk image files to the physical carrier. I’ve managed to match all but five and I can’t tell if I’m missing something, the carrier doesn’t exist anymore, or the names just don’t match.

Code4lib is in San Jose next year and I’m intrigued. I’ve never been but really want to experience it, but I’d have to pay registration costs out of pocket and that’s a big chunk of change.

Just emailed a dog rescue place about a doggie that upon description seems good for Osito and I’d love the two to meet. Anxiously waiting to hear back!
