I had a very similar reaction when I saw The Sisterhood of the Travelling Pants. I couldn't bring myself to see the second one.
I'm enjoying this series. Keep it up.
Yes, problem #3 is a concern, but only a minor one. I generally prefer reformatting any content that is delivered as a Word doc, and because it doesn't retain that formatting, it makes my job a great deal easier.
Hi Beth! We're so glad you enjoyed the comment. But rest assured, we don't hate your father. We treat everyone equally at VPL, even if they have questionable taste in sports teams. :)
Agreed, which is why a time-based contest - i.e., "If you become Mayor of Library X by date Z" might work best. Another option that might work well would be to award the person who becomes Mayor most often within a specified date period.
Yeah, I'm excited about the idea. I just hope it's something we're able to put into practice, if even for a little while.
Yep, I've seen it, though I've never worked with it personally. I like the idea - but the conventional wisdom I've been hearing is that systems like Koha and Evergreen aren't well suited for library systems as large as mine. I don't know how true that is because I haven't done the legwork, but in just looking at the list of libraries who are using Koha, I don't see anyone that's a comparable size.
Still, it's good to see competitors adopting these kinds of features for catalogues. I think the major vendors are definitely taking notice.
Not if you're prone to motion sickness. :)
I was right there with you until you took a cheap shot at another host.
