My morning resulted in tracking down ducks and managed to find some in a certificate making program.

MPOW hasn't really kept up with the whole museum meme things that have been happening recently, but today someone decided that we MUST participate in this duck picture thing.

Is there a AAT term for a file listing? I have a bunch of print-outs from the 80s that have file listings for floppy disks, but I am having a hard time finding a term that fits.

Updating records for a bunch of 8 inch floppies and I don't understand why the title field is so off from the given disk titles. The handwriting can be hard to read, but there is a print out with the filenames and title of the disk to cross reference with.

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!
