Here’s a copyright MOOC, if you’re into that sort of thing. 

I took a copyright course with Kevin Smith at SILS, and it was excellent!

Get To Know Your Tumblarians Tuesday: Let the sorting now begin…?

lecieltumultueux:

Quick one this week. Which Hogwarts House are you in?

Personally, I thought I would be Slytherin for a while but finally had an epiphany and welcomed my fate:

I can get quite badgery.

I’m a Gryffindor according to Pottermore, which was a surprise.

I was expecting Ravenclaw or Hufflepuff.

I’m thinking about getting back in the twitter game. What are the must-follow libraryish twitters? (Or just your accounts…)

Same as my Tumblr.  

I’m @pussreboots on Twitter and I have a list of librarian Twitter accounts.

My twitter is @DubDeeArr

My librarian twitter is @Fobettarh

I’m @ebethreads. Like pussreboots, I have a list of librarian and library-related Twitter accounts.

Announcing Dash + Tumblr

continuants:

dash:

Dash + Tumblr homepage screenshot

The first thing we did after we launched Dash last October was to try to think up cool topics we could teach next. The goal was to teach something practical, but make it fun. With so many good options, we thought it might be difficult to decide on just one to focus on, but as soon as the idea was brought up to teach people how to make Tumblr themes, our whole team fell in love.

Now, eight months later, we are thrilled to share with you Dash for Tumblr. You can check it out right now and start learning (100% free, as always) at http://dash.generalassemb.ly/tumblr

How does it work?

If you’ve never coded any HTML or CSS before, we recommend you do the first two projects on regular Dash before trying to learn Tumblr’s theme system. These lessons free and can be accessed at http://dash.generalassemb.ly/projects. It should only take 30 minutes to an hour to do this part. If you already know the basics of HTML & CSS, you can skip this step.

Once you’ve completed the pre-reqs, you’re now ready to learn Tumblr’s syntax language. Instead of presenting the lessons as an exhaustive reference, we walk you through the process of creating a new theme from scratch, step-by-step. Here’s a screenshot of our interface:

As you can see, there’s a slideshow on the left that walks you through the lessons, and a text editor where you can write your code. The output of your code appears on the right. It updates instantly as you type, and saves your work in the background automatically. Certain slides in the slideshow are checkpoints that stop you and ask you to write a line or two of code. They also check to make sure you get it right.

As you work your way through the lessons, you’ll start to see your theme take shape. It isn’t the fanciest looking theme, but you will understand the underlying structure of a tumblr theme and know how to modify your own or make a new one from scratch. We don’t cover every single aspect of theme development, but we will teach you everything you need to know to understand the basics. Once you finish the lessons, Tumblr’s theme documentation won’t look quite so intimidating anymore ;)

The whole thing should only take a couple days to complete! It’s fun, and 100% free. What are you waiting for?

Start learning now at http://dash.generalassemb.ly/tumblr!

themes! learning to build them! this is a really rad program.

Chester Nez, 93, Dies; Navajo Words Washed From Mouth Helped Win War

“When joining the Marine Corps, I thought about how my people were mistreated,” Mr. Nez said in a 2005 interview. “But then I thought this would be my chance to do something for my country.”

How’s that for service.

Get to Know Your Tumblarian Tuesday: What Would You Like to Learn (Someday)?

mylifeinthelibrary:

lecieltumultueux is away from her computer this week and asked us tumblarians to post questions today in her absence.

My question for you is actually taken from my library’s current project to engage patrons by asking What would you most like to learn (someday)?…

I’d also love to learn ASL as well as French. And I’d like to brush up on Mandarin and Spanish.

It would also be fun to learn more about photography.
