Four plus months after the passing of our beloved Partners, we were finally ready to welcome a new kitty into our lives. In fact, we're planning on having two.
Day One of the GLBT ALMS conference at the CUNY Grad Center. (ALMS stands for Archives, Libraries, Museums, and Special Collections, btw.)
I arrived at the conference in time to attend my friend Emily Drabinski's panel on Library of Congress Subject Headings (LCSH).
Just so's you know, I'm going to make a post for each workshop I attended, rather than one superlong post about the whole event.
Anyone else plotting a better use for your "Economic Stimulus Payment" than buying stuff?
I'm determined to donate mine to a cause specifically fighting government aggression, oppression, and/or repression.
This post is part of the Radical Reference Library of Congress Subject Heading Suggestion Blog-a-Thon.
While I am over the top that you have adopted the -WAVE FEMINISM headings, I think you could do better on the references. Per my blog post comment of February 2008, this is what I suggest...
I have to admit that although it was heady at first, the wind is a bit out of my sails on this whole LCSH watch thing now that the -wave feminisms are in, even if they really do need some cross-references. So now perhaps my next target subject heading is Freeganism.
I'm particularly excited this time around to welcome Fair use (Copyright) to the wonderful world of Library of Congress Subject Headings, but as you can see I've also got some questions and quibbles.
Today instead of picking apart the Library of Congress Subject Headings Weekly List, I'm going through Sandy Berman's personal scorecard, an older version of which can be found on his website. I am using a version dated April 15, 2008. Stay tuned for an html version on the Radical Reference site, where there will also be info on a coordinated day of submitting subject heading recommendations to LC, on April 27, 2008.
Eric and I are hoping to adopt a cat and a kitten in the next few weeks. Until I can once get my hands on a furry little belly and worship a triangle nose, I'm occupying my kitty lust by coming up with names. I know we should wait and see what the animals are like before we name them, but I figure if people can determine their baby's name before they meet him/her, I can at least brainstorm some possibilities for our future felines.
Following is a list of the ideas we've come up with so far, and I hope y'all will comment on them and contribute some more.
