Has international World Cup fever inspired you to look for some books from around the globe? If so, check out NYPL’s Literary World Cup featuring authors from each competing country. It’s a great way to find some new writers to enjoy! 

What a clever idea to promote your collection and encourage your patrons to read fiction in translation!

I love this!

Have you been harassed, sexually or otherwise, at a conference? Experienced transphobia or homophobia or ableism? Felt unsafe? Experienced unwanted physical contact? Received fatphobic comments? Been stalked, either physically or virtually? Have you witnessed any of the previous situations? OR, have you only had pleasant conference experiences? Please fill out this survey

At only 10 questions long, this survey exists to document Code of Conduct violations at ALA conferences. Consider filling it out if you have EVER attended an ALA conference. Any anecdotes and/or stories appreciated.

I need a few helpers…

katemacetak:

This Wednesday at noon EST I am giving a webinar to the North Carolina Library Association about Tumblr! 

I’d love it if a few people could reblog/like a post we’re making during the presentation, as well as someone to send us an Ask! 

Also, I was wondering if a few folks would be willing to record a short 30 second-2 minute video talking about how/why they use tumblr—ideally I’d like one professional blog (a tumblr for a library/institution), and one personal blog. (A presenter at ALA had these short video clips from people and I’m stealing her idea…)

Message me if you’re interested!

"No one lives a single-axis life. We all embody multiple axes of identity and oppression throughout our lives that often affect us simultaneously. As Flavia Dzodan said, “My feminism will be intersectional or it will be bullshit.” To treat librarianship and its communities as a single-axis phenomenon renders those who occupy the intersections invisible and therefore ignored."

Pro-tip for Tumblr reblogs

catagator:

When you try to reblog something and you can’t get the full text of it into your reblog, does it annoy you? Because it annoys me when I try to do that. I want to share the entire thing, not a couple sentences that cut off and require a click through (I’m lazy, which is why I have a dash!). 

There’s a solution friends. It took me a long time to figure out, but now I am going to show you the trick:

image

When you hit “reblog,” scroll up to the very top of the post you’re reblogging. On the right-hand side, do you see that wheel? Right next to the wheel, there is a drop down menu that lets you select HOW you’re reblogging.

Rather than reblog as a link, which is what the default is, you can reblog it as a text. Then you have the full reblog in one spot. 

Easy.

Yup.  This and Divergent.  And Frozen.

BITCH THERE ARE 214 PEOPLE AHEAD OF YOU IN LINE

Yep. They’ll be waiting until 2015.
