#libday6 for Tuesday January 25, 2011

  • Man MPOW’s twitter account to see if there’s anything this account need to act upon (questions, tweets worth RT-ed, announcement, etc.)
  • Worked on Electronic Resources and Libraries (ER&L) website, adding Michael Porter as our last keynote speaker
  • Testing out calibre, the ebook management application. I’d like to see the output of converting PDF into epub or .mobi format. Based on one experiment, forget it. You will need a PDF with good structure. Also, calibre apparently can’t convert Word documents as well. But, it can convert RTF nicely.
  • Standing meeting with supervisor.
  • Received queries from Technical Services about oversized-books that they’re working on. Withdraw one per GovDocs librarian’s input and keep another per Humanities librarian input.
  • Conference call with a vendor on their statistic package application. We covered updates and future releases.
  • Started creating individual page for each of code4lib 2011 programs for the Wednesday schedule.
  • Read the OCLC report “Perceptions of Libraries, 2010: Context and Community”. Still chewing on it. But you can read the conclusion (PDF) yourself, if you want to.
