The value of critical appraisal

This week I am wrapping up my last evidence summary for the (open access) Evidence Based Library and Information Practice Journal. I'm feeling quite nostalgic about it. I joined the evidence summary team in mid-2012 and have completed two 2-year commitments. It's been a key writing activity for most of my pre-tenure time here at UL.

End of a metadata era

Changes are happening! Since 2009, I have had responsibility for all things metadata at University Library. During the last 7 years, the Digital Libraries Team has gone through two name changes and an enormous amount of growth to become the Center for Digital Scholarship. Though it is somewhat bittersweet for me, the current level of productivity and diversity of projects coming out of the Center made this the right time to hand off metadata management responsibilities to someone for whom metadata would be her sole responsibility.

Preprints in Poetry: Why am I doing this?

First, a confession:
Yes, I write poetry. In fact, I've written poetry slowly but persistently for more than three decades. Most of it is complete garbage; some of it has been published in literary journals. But a great deal more, of modest quality, has never been published, submitted or shared. The last fifteen or so years have been largely dedicated to a single form--five couplets, generally not rhyming; ghazals, loosely understood and (at times) loosely "after" Ghalib.
