Pinned toot

Hello! Here's my :

I'm a by training and calling. Currently I am a manager in a mid-sized public library, and have previously worked in academic and special libraries as well.

My other interests include , particularly the Jacobite Database of 1745. For more information on , follow its creator @funkyplaid.

In my spare time, I write fiction and dabble in other things, all catalogued earnestly at cygnoir.net.

This seems like a good time for a PSA:

If in the future you see something on a public-facing webpage you want to make a durable record of for use as evidence, don't take a screenshot. Those are -- understandably -- widely considered too easy to fabricate.

Instead, snapshot the page with the Internet Archive. It'll log a timestamped copy of the page to their servers. Highly tamper-resistant.

archive.org/web/ ("save page now", bottom-right)

Did you know that communitywiki.org/trunk exists?

It's a new project where you can find people in the Fediverse and follow them by topic.

Also, you can request to be included. It's a really cool idea.
