Daily Thoughts 05/15/2012
This morning, I updated the Twitter and Facebook accounts for the library. I also checked the displays and the book sale. I also had a chance to read through the latest issue of Publishers Weekly and prepare some order lists for the future.
I addition, I spent a little time on Codecademy, I am currently working on advanced CSS which is confusing at best.
Teach Yourself Code is a resource site for learning Ruby on Rails. http://www.teachyourselfcode.com/
I am planning on going to the Digital Show and Tell that is part of Book Expo America on June 7, 2012.
There is also a Librarian Dinner and a Librarian Luncheon presented by the American Association of Publishers. It will be a nice place to network. It is part of a series of events focused on librarians and publishers.
I walked around a bit today and looked at the shelves. The shifting project in the oversize books is well on its way to getting finished. I also followed up with some of the publicity which came out for the author event with Ellen Datlow, John Langan, and Laird Barron.
I also checked on the computer classes today. They are going well. Most of today has been about making sure details are taken care of.
Are Publishers Waking Up from their Dream About Apps?
Apps are interesting. Very few libraries have tablet computers right now. There are far more e-books and e-readers than tablets in libraries.
