We cre­ated this site for those of you that have a song stuck in your head and you can’t get it out no mat­ter what you do. Using the lat­est in reverse-auditory-melodic-unstickification tech­nol­ogy, we’ve been able to allow our users to “unhear” songs by hear­ing equally catchy songs. So really all we’re doing is mak­ing you for­get your old song by replac­ing it with another one… sorry. — via @swissmiss

We had a great dis­cus­sion about the staff response plan, and I got caught up in the con­ver­sa­tion so didn’t take thor­ough meet­ing notes. Per­haps we need to rotate this duty?
Megan has put together a great foun­da­tion for the Choose Your Own Adven­ture Response Plan. She came up with five basic sce­nar­ios, which she’ll post to the group: pos­i­tive, neu­tral, inac­cu­rate, neg­a­tive low risk, and neg­a­tive high risk. We also added information-seeking/customer ser­vice as a sixth type.

  1. Hi Jenny!

    I’ve been fol­low­ing your blog for a while now and love your stuff (espe­cially your blog posts about the kin­dle and next gen­er­a­tion eread­ers that will help us to share con­tent). I thought you might be inter­ested in the new Exlib­ris report­ing solu­tion that my com­pany has devel­oped with Boston Col­lege Libraries. We’re hold­ing a webi­nar for sys­tems librar­i­ans to show what we’ve done with BC and where we’re going…and it should be great! With it, libraries can:

    * Eas­ily mea­sure and man­age acqui­si­tion per­for­mance
    * Sum­ma­rize and mon­i­tor cir­cu­la­tion stats by date range, sub-library, title, item, sta­tus, and patron
    * Sum­ma­rize bud­get or sub-budget sta­tus by what was pur­chased, what is pend­ing, and how much remains in the budget

    And we have a whole bunch of other fea­tures on our roadmap like being able to ana­lyze real-time usage of e-Journal pack­ages against sub­scrip­tion costs to cal­cu­late ROI and to gen­er­ate ARL sta­tis­tics on demand.

    I am hop­ing you might post about this on your blog or on twit­ter. Here’s the link to reg­is­ter: http://bit.ly/cTrAOw

    Okay shame­less plug OVER now! Thanks. :)
