Library friends: has your institution used SERU in lieu of licensing for electronic resources? I’d love to hear about your experiences.

Replying to @savasavasava

Lean toward hopeful! There’s so much more to be done than that book could contain.

Sun May 04 22:16:28 +0000 2014

A re-query, for my library friends: Has your institution used a SERU agreement for digital resources? If so, what were your experiences?

Mon May 05 19:51:50 +0000 2014

For that matter, if you have made the decision not to use SERU, I’d love to hear anything you’re willing to share about that, too.

Replying to @samplereality

It’s one of many compromises that the process required. The good news is that this structure is *way* more flexible than b4.

I like that! The good news is, though, that you have lots of possibilities, rather than one “media” group.

Hey, laptops *were* amazing after only having 20lb “portable” computers. My first PowerBook was a revelation.

Fri May 16 17:53:35 +0000 2014

Things I love about my phone: I have dropped it repeatedly, and yet it shows only minor signs of abuse. Also, it mostly does what I want.

Fri May 16 18:38:55 +0000 2014

Things I loathe about it: a battery that is becoming flakier by the day. A stupid plan that won’t let me tether. International data roaming.

Fri May 16 18:39:48 +0000 2014

Those last two mean I’ll be changing providers soon. But the battery thing is making me antsy to get a new phone. And yet I want to hold out

Fri May 16 18:41:26 +0000 2014

until fall if I can, to get the next-gen device.

Fri May 16 18:42:01 +0000 2014

All this by way of saying that I am increasingly impatient, and I think it’s making my phone-dropping habit worse.

It’s partly inertia, partly keeping everything working together, and partly resentment at the idea of buying all my apps again.
