To add to our posts about libraries, other book-related matters, and wine-related repurposing, there’s this:

An obsolete card catalog repurposed as a minibar.

Need we say more?!

Do we have any of these? 

I just want a card catalog in my home.

Do this in my library, and you die.

I can’t tell you how much pictures like this make me seethe. All those books answer to gravity. All those crinkled pages. I also firmly dislike the habit of folding down a corner. Why would you do that? What did that book ever do to you that you feel the compulsion to mar a part of it like that??

I follow someone who attends Emerson College

and I’ve been trying to think for a while now why that name is so familiar to me. I finally succumbed to Google and oh, of course. When I was still planning on a career in publishing, I researched MA programs. My three schools were NYU, George Washington University, and Emerson. I’m still very intrigued by that world, but I think I’m headed towards book conservatorship. And yes, damn you Chrome, that is a word.

University of Texas’ Kilgarlin Center is now defunct, so I’ll have to start nosing around for other conservation/preservation programs.

Guys, guys!

Christina challenged me to find information on a Master’s of Music Performance from NYU because it was so difficult for her to find. I, of course, accepted and believe I have found the information in question in ten minutes flat. Nothing new, I’m like an information bloodhound who also happens to be fabulous.

BUT. I did turn up something new. NYU offers a dual-degree Master of Science in Library and Information Science in conjunction with Long Island University’s Palmer School of Library and Information Science. Which means I could have a specialist foundation. In New York! I could intern at MoMAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.

I’m going to print this out, tack it on my wall, and work my ass off towards it.
