Today I had my first Dog Poo + Wheelchair experience, and so PICK UP AFTER YOUR DOG OKAY.

It's not just people's shoes it might affect, when dog poo gets on wheelchair wheels it will probably end up on the disabled person's hands and sleeves too! PICK UP AFTER YOUR DOG.

I wonder if it would be possible to replace Libguides with a static site generator and markdown files. 🤔

What better job to attend to than cleaning out this folder at 4.39pm on Friday?

any recommendations for me as I look for a cheapish, basic midi keyboard?

Every library I have worked at, all the staff referred to the library management system in ALL CAPS, despite the fact that the majority of people now working in libraries weren't born when ILS vendors stopped using acronyms for product names.

FOLIO is actually a regression back two generations of naming conventions.
