I don't know how many of you have used it, but Zotero has been amazing for Bibliographies and now has an app! You can visit https://www.zotero.org/
Have fun playing and creating and oh yeah, you'll be called a genius when you share this tool with others!

Fell off and got right back on...

So things are hectic, long-distant, immediate family members are seriously ill, kids need to be delivered here and picked up there; a good night's sleep and complete rest is non-existent.

I challenge you to share your best keep secret to staying in shape, and getting a good night's rest.

If you have a bad or hectic day, what do you do to dust yourself off and get back on with life with a positive mindset?

Thanks,
Sharon

Great Expectactions

Not very creative, I know, so sue me. (You won't get much if you do.) :-P

Anyway, I am very excited about our courses this semester. The management class looks like a challenge, but I expect it to be fun as well. The collection development class has been interesting so far.

What do the rest of you think? What do you expect to 'get out' of these courses?

What the Freak?

Let me get this straight....

The same people who can provide us with all of our class information MONTHS in advance, down to the days we have class, are incapable, 3 months later, of providing us the same info for our other class?

I called today. THey said we'd know one way or another on Monday.

We'll see.

We'll see.

I'm not holding my breath.

Free At Last!

Or, at least until Mid May.

I must confess to some nervousness about next semesters course offerings. I'm looking forward to our databases class.

Basically, we get to learn how to control other companies databases remotely, thus beginning us on a path to world domination that only ends with...

Eh? What's that?

Oh, we don't learn that?

Oh....

Back to the drawing board.

Seriously, for me at least, this will be the first PR class I've taken. I have my books already for book classes, even though they don't start for another two weeks. (In my baccalaurate days, I was known for buying books literally minutes before classes started; of course, I lived on campus then.

But, on a side note, I think that we of the Turnip Truck have earned a break; who's up for the Midnight Showing of Revenge of the Sith? Anyone?
