What reference skills would you like to polish?

I’ve been asked to give a 3 day advanced reference course to working college reference librarians. I’m planning to spend one day teaching free databases/social networks like Google Scholar, Mendeley, Academia, SSRN, BASE, and ResearchGate.

But what to do the other two days?

Librarians — what skill would you want to learn or polish if you could do a short in-person continuing ed course?

Library users — Have you ever walked away from the reference desk unsatisfied? What did you want to find out that the librarian couldn’t help you with?

Does anyone already post this pic? I haven’t seen it anywhere. It’s the promotional still of the episode 9 “Sweet Revenge” (taken from TNT Drama website).
Love the blue jacket, is it a new jacket Sharon?You don’t know how much I would like to go shopping with you and Gavin… next time give me a shout darling, I’ll pay for lunch.
And Tao with a magnifying glass? I ship Tao with the magnifying glass…
I’m so looking forward to see this scene, because it seems that everyone is trying so hard to be serious (even Sharon is almost to the point of cracking up).

She looks like the flag of Israel. Thanks, Sharon. We appreciate your support of our country. :)
Seriously now, she looks frakking fantastic.

Maybe the disproportional death counts stem from one side’s willingness to sacrifice soldiers to protect civilians and the other side’s sacrifice of civilians to protect soldiers.

“If in the past year you didn’t CRY OUT when thousands of protesters were killed and injured by Turkey, Egypt and Libya, when more victims than ever were hanged by Iran, women and children in Afghanistan were bombed, whole communities were massacred in South Sudan, 1800 Palestinians were starved and murdered by Assad in Syria, hundreds in Pakistan were killed by jihadist terror attacks, 10,000 Iraqis were killed by terrorists, villagers were slaughtered in Nigeria, but you ONLY cry out for GAZA, then you are not pro HUMAN RIGHTS, you are only ANTI-ISRAEL.”

Question for tumblr librarians

I was having a conversation with some friends and they started asking about librarianish drinks, so librarians of tumblr, here’s my task for you!

Please reblog this post with the name (and recipe, if you’d like!) of your favorite cocktail(s) or alcoholic drinks! Let’s make a catalog (pun intended) of hard drinks that librarians love!

One of my favorites is the nice and classic bourbon and ginger. :)

Whiskey and ginger!

Highball (Canadian whiskey and ginger ale)

Seconded on the Highball. I also like Dark n’ Stormy (Dark Spice Rum with Ginger Ale) and Snakebite (1/2 hard cider 1/2 lager)

I’ll second the Snakebite and add Manhattans (or the occasional Old Fashioned).

Couldn’t possibly choose just one drink! I love J.K. Scrumpy’s hard cider, Belgian trippels, and the peach sangria from my favorite taco place. 

Laphroaig 10 year single malt whisky. Like drinking a cozy campfire.

Because it’s officially Trevor Tuesday!

I had something to say about that — and then I saw the third pic. Lord, is it hot in here, or is it just Trevor?

How are these?

nice…..

Well, today’s obviously Trevor Tuesday.

You say that like it’s a bad thing.

I have a rule — only reblog Trevor Eve on days that end in a “y”.
