Yup.  This and Divergent.  And Frozen.

And then they say “No, I don’t want to put a hold on it, I’ll just wait.” 

BITCH THERE ARE 214 PEOPLE AHEAD OF YOU IN LINE

Yep. They’ll be waiting until 2015.

I just took the What Kind of Librarian are you quiz.

I am a history/geneology librarian!

Reader’s Advisory Librarian (that’s my dream job!)

Picture books for visually impaired kids go 3D thanks to CU-Boulder research team

far-to-fall:

librarianbyday:

"A children’s classic that already is a candidate for the all-time best feel-good book, “Goodnight Moon,” has gotten a boost: A University of Colorado Boulder team printed the first 3D version of it, allowing visually impaired children and their families to touch objects in the story — like the cow jumping over the moon — as it is read aloud."

This is the best news I’ve heard all day!

That’s amazing!

Get To Know Your Tumblarians Tuesday: What's on your hold list?

lecieltumultueux:

Ean has a question for us all…what’s on your hold list? Is it a DVD that hasn’t come out yet, or a book that someone else just WON’T return?

I’ve been waiting for quite a bit for this book (POIROT 4EVA). It was on hold for someone for several weeks which was weird, so I didn’t bother…

I have holds at my neighborhood library and my work library that include:

  • The Magician’s Land by Lev Grossman - #4 in line, but we’re getting 7 copies. Yay!
  • Broadchurch - This looks excellent (though honestly I’ll watch anything with David Tennant)
  • a little YA: The Fever by Megan Abbott, We Were Liars by E. Lockhart, and The One by Kiera Cass
  • The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters - I completely forgot this was on my holds lists. This happens periodically, and I get a fun hold shelf surprise.

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.
