I'm starting a list that I'll update weekly (I hope) of things more important to the Library of Congress Subject Headings deciders than delineating the waves of feminism. Too bad no one has ever written a book on First (LC call # HQ1154 .B267 1987), Second (LC Call # HQ1190 .E89 1995), or Third (LC Call # HQ1115 .W644 2006) Wave Feminism!

Friday, March 14: Columbia Reference Symposium 309A Butler Library, Columbia University 8:30am-4pm.
As much as I try to ignore electoral politics and the U.S. president and stuff, I can't help but give the Democratic primary race some thought--about race and gender.
I'm attending and likely presenting at three conferences this spring, and I'm excited about each one in a way I rarely do about certain giant conferences that meet in such asinine places as Anaheim, California.
Here's my report back from ALA Midwinter 2008. I'll fill you in on my experiences with the Chinatown bus, radical librarian/radical techie love, the zine librarians meet-up, a white privilege workshop, Radical Reference, Movers & Shakers, and vegan eats.
