08:22 am - Postmodern MLA
It's easy for librarians to take citation more seriously than the rest of the universe. This link arrived in my email box yesterday and reminded me that even postmodern bibliographers might consider lightening up. Let me know what you think: http://www.pmla.org/altsource.html

Good citing!

Gee, Joyce,

I think you could add that link to your school page! It would come in handy for some of the more avant-garde research projects completed by our students. Giggle!

Class?

Hmmm, I think I can use this site for my library class at Plattsburgh State as I try to teach them citations! Giggle, Sara

Great, Sara. That makes sense for your university students. I wasn't sure I could use that one with the kids at Springfield. I am so looking forward to Boston. Should give the gang access to our Live Journals for planning purposes?

Yes, it could work well for Boston. Do you remember what night Greenwood is? If it's Sunday, there is also a PorQuest reception and dinner invite I got from Donna. I'll have to remember where i put that invitation...

The citations will get the attention of college kids but I agree are not good for HS except maybe seniors--the ones who think they know everything but really only know the basiscs for college. They need to know that there are MANY formats that need to be cited that they've not encountered yet--but will ;-).

Have a great New Year's celebration--out or home. I'll be dancing to Double Axel along with Ryan, Christina, Anth, Tyler & Shawna, Rich and Karen (Frank's brother and sister-in-law), Linda (drummer's wife) and Chris (their son) and his newly pregnant wife Niki. Should be fun--and safe

Boston is sooooooon.

Joyce,
I was checking traffic on my site (pmla.org) and noticed you had linked to it and whatnot. I just wanted to thank you and say how glad I am you appreciated it enough to do that. I hope this doesn't seem weird, but it's such a kick for me that actual people from all over the world are digging something that I've created that I've been making an attempt to give a shout out to the folks who are linking to it in their blogs and message boards.

While I'm here, I might as well plug my other site: www.brainsnack.net

It's just a site for my Chicago tour guide business, but it has tons of photos and stuff about Chicago. If you're interested in Chicago you'll definitely dig it. If not, thanks again for mentioning pmla.org.

Regards,
Michael Corcoran
