Daily Thoughts 3/11/2011
I requested The Atlas of New Librarianship by David R.Lankes through interlibrary loan. I also read a little more of The Accidental Taxonomist. I am learning about the process of creating terms in taxonomies.
This morning I did some tabulation for the survey. I am starting to compile what people are saying. It is quite interesting. I also checked on the Twitter account, did some more weeding in the mezzanine and checked the displays.
I made calls for next week for our poetry networking event on March 17, 2011 at 6:30 p.m. as well as pulled graphic novels for the graphic novels club on March 16, 2011.
Two items came in for me. The first is the movie, The Social Network which I have been looking forward to seeing for a little while. The other item is murach's HTML, XHTML, and CSS by Anne Boehm. I have to learn some XHTML if I am going understand taxonomy and content strategy better.
After reading the New York Times Book Review, I put the book, Moonwalking With Einstein The Art and Science of Remembering Everything by Joshua Foer on hold. I have always been fascinated with the idea of memory castles and eidetic memory.
I also am looking at the February 15, 2011 Kirkus Reviews slowly because it is on interactive e-books. I am probably going to read this slowly.
We have our demonstration station set up for the Sony Reader Library program. I am looking forward to the library get ereading devices.
This evening, I watched the Social Network on dvd. It is a very interesting film. It is very believable. I liked the excess in the film. The characters were very well done.
