We’re having a blast at the Society of American Archivists Annual Meeting chatting with our fellow archivists and tumblarians
and talking all things Othmeralia at our poster session. If you’re at the conference, please swing by the ballroom level and say “hello.” And a question for all the
out there, near and far: why should archivists and librarians add Tumblr to their social media repertoire? Post your thoughts in the comments below and we’ll share them at the conference.
You know when your really, really tired but your brain wont shut up and your on tumblr because you can’t sleep. And then the next morning you wake up and are like when did this happen, or like wow why did I reblog that?
Two cart-loads of our bibles were summoned last week to assist in filming for a upcoming HarvardX class on Scripture. (They traveled like the divas they are, accompanied by every single support we own.)
I was informed that the library does not provide the use of a stapler for the general public. I would like to express my displeasure with such a policy. If there is any way I can be of assistance in helping provide MINIMAL stationary needs, please do not hesitate to inform me.
Complaint letter to the library, found in an old box of files.
If our dictionary editors have taught us nothing else, it is that the most common usage earns a place in our hearts. So, what is the most common spelling of the word blend Tumblr + librarian: tumblrarian, tumblarian, or tumblrian?
It’s Monday so I decided to be a little mischievous with this post. lol.
Okay, okay I know this phrase can be misinterpret in a number of ways but what I can say is this we’re a small branch on Staten Island that serves the Dongan Hills community as a whole. How big is your library branch? ;)
Heading out to ALA Annual at the end of the week? In celebration of the upcoming conference, Oxford Handbooks Online will be freeing up a new library-related review article every day this week for our favorite tumblarians. We are kicking off today with an article on the history of libraries in early American society.
Check back tomorrow for another article and stop by the OUP booth on Saturday, June 29 from 2:00-3:00 p.m. for a special presentation on the evolution of the Oxford Handbooks program.
