Quick, Random Tips for a Wednesday

July 27, 2011

Happy Wednesday! I hope you are having a good day, dear readers. Many of you might be aware that it is the week in the life of the librarian (or something to that effect) this week. It’s kind of taking over Twitter (at least in the librarian bit) and the blogs. I don’t want to bore you with a recounting of my workdays, plus I don’t really have the time as I’m trying to get a lot of stuff done before being gone from the library for the first week of August. So today, I have a few very helpful links to share and then it’s back to work for me. So let’s get going.

First, as a small infographics redux, check out Stephen Abram’s Searching for and Making Infographics. I can’t wait to try out some of the infographic design tools. And who doesn’t like looking at well-designed infographics?

Then, if you’re like me and facing multiple piles (physical and digital) of stuff to do before the weekend, you’ll definitely want to check out Lifehacker’s article, Boost your Productivity, Cripple your Technology. It completely works. I got so much writing done this weekend by just shutting off my computer and getting out a notebook. I do need to go buy some more paper now, though…

For those of you who have completed spring cleaning and now have a pile of slides and negatives that need to be digitized on the cheap, check out an easy DIY option using cardstock instead of an expensive slide scanner.

Finally, when you need to figure out what to make for dinner, check out Punchfork. It’s another lovely recipe site, pulling in some of the best recipes from around the web.

Have a wonderful rest of your day and I’ll be back on Friday with more tech, library, and archives musing. In the meantime, don’t forget to read and submit your photos/recipes/etc. to League of Evil Baking Librarians. Allons-y!

    Thanks for the Punchfork ref; I hadn’t seen that before! And thanks for the link love for The League. Once my partner in crime gets back from his conference in Philly, we will begin hatching more evil plans ๐Ÿ˜‰
