A Month of Moving, pt. 3: Stupid Shit I Shouldn't Be Wasting my Time On

  • Entering bibliography from old notes and publishers' catalogues that I have stacked up.
  • And I shouldn't have kept those anyway.
  • ... from 2009?!? What the hell? Why didn't I thrown these away years ago?
  • I'm just gonna take this whole folder and... Ooh! There's a bib I got from my Revered Mentor in grad school on the subject he's a world expert in. Let's enter that now.
  • No. It's 18 pages long. Okay, back in the folder it goes. 
  • Along with this.
  • And this.
  • I'll enter them all online soon.

That sounds like a fabulous job for a student worker, should such a creature be available to you!

Or a scanner to PDF for future student workers?

What's an ILAF?

I always end up with piles of catalogs after conferences. And then a year later I realize that I haven't done anything with them. And they go in the recycling.

Precisely, Susan. The problem is I stick them in a drawer. Right now, I'm looking at a catalog from **2004.**
