One of the coolest #library displays I've seen: with my son at the #Bibliothèque et Archives nationales du Québec (BAnQ). I walked right past but at my son's eye-level, he spotted it. Just in the stacks, a little projector hides behind some cut-out books and projects ghosts onto this display, which appear to glow.
Operated on my Olympia Splendid 66 tonight. Some keys stopped before making it to the platen. This grooved metal piece (not sure what it's called) wasn't aligned. Rather than sliding into the grooves, the typebars hit the raised tongue portions of the metal. It was really hard to get to. Though it now works again, I need to find out how to secure this grooved metal piece so that it doesn't get out of place in the future.
Inspiring start to the 2018 Digital Library Federation Forum #dlfforum w/ a talk by Anasuya Sengupta about decolonizing the Internet, good thinking on the perspectives producing & access knowledge. I'm hearing lots of interesting digital scholarship work, & nice to see the Concordia Library with so many other new DLF members welcomed.

This creature neither understands nor cares that I'm finishing up some research leave. Lunch is over, back to work. #dogsofmastodon
Great Mordecai Richler display at the Concordia #Library right now! It includes items from our special collections and I especially like that it includes his #typewriters! https://library.concordia.ca/about/news/#guid=http://library.concordia.ca/about/news/#i06_June_2018_11:00:14_EST (more here: https://www.concordia.ca/artsci/english/research/mordecai-richler-reading-room.html)

Wow, sitting in a barbershop, with a 1972 National Geographic and i saw this ad. Feed your kids sugar, it's good for them.
