- Marie Kennedy is the Serials & Electronic Resources Librarian at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, CA. This blog is about organization, librarianship, and sometimes monkeys and/or bananas.
I’m going to forgive that comment from the article cited below because a monkey controlling a robotic wheelchair with his mind is a pretty incredible thing.
In this year, according to http://www.chinahighlights.com/travelguide/chinese-zodiac/monkey.htm, “Great unexpected fortune will find its way to Monkeys in 2016, so they will not have to worry about food and clothes.” That’s nice.
Also, “People born in a year of the Monkey often spend more time at work.” Yeah, we know: guilty. “Therefore Monkeys need to remember to take breaks to save their energy during their busy schedules.” Okay, we can do that.
Cheryl and I have recently signed on to write a second edition of Marketing Your Library’s Electronic Resources. Hurrah, I know! We are excited to update components throughout the book and add new marketing plans. Before starting to do any actual re-writing I thought I’d take a look at all the book reviews that have been written since the publication of the work in 2013. Wow, what a gold mine your reviews have turned out to be. I’m poring through what you’ve written to see what you suggest being moved to different sections, things you’d like to see added, making notes of what NOT to change with the second edition.
If you have reviewed our book, THANK YOU. Your words inspired librarians across the world to purchase the book for their collections and hopefully have nudged a few to begin creating marketing plans for e-resources at their libraries. Now your words are helping to shape the second iteration of the work. We wouldn’t want to do this without you!
