Welcome to Confessions of a Science Librarian!

Checking my referrer logs this morning I see that I've been named today's Blogger of Note by the Blogger team. It's quite an honour and I'd like to thank them for giving this humble blog that very kind recognition.

Please stick around and check out some of the other stuff you can find here. Probably my most famous and well know series of posts are:


Thanks for dropping by and enjoy your visit!

congrats on the nod from blogger. I'm a library school dropout and always enjoy reading about the paths of other specialty librarians. It's truly an amazing profession, and thanks for sharing yours with us strangers!

Hi John,

Thanks for blogging! I think your site is incredible and have added it to one of my lists. I a studying archivist, working as a clerk in a public library and doing usability on digital interfaces over the summer for the University of Michigan's library.

Look forward to learning more about the travails of science librarianship.

as a custodian of scientific knowledge your skills are crucial. the guarders of knowledge have brought mankind through many a dark age. Most days you are content with your decision to become a librarian.

But other times you get to wondering 'what if?' What if you had become a ninja instead?

Congratulations on making Blogger of Note. I find that your blog is very intersesting.

John Dupuis said...

Thanks, again, everyone for your kind words.

As for being a ninja -- I was always thinking more along the lines of Conan the Barbarian or The Warlord!

Hi there, fellow librarianite!

I had one question which is probably stupid but there are no stupid questions...?

How does one check their referrer log? Never heard of that.

BTW...interesting blog.

John Dupuis said...

Thanks, everyone!

Keith, by referrer logs I mean the application I use to track the number of hits the blog gets and where they come from. I use both Xtreme Tracking and Google Analytics. XT is a lot more bare bones but I check it more frequently -- often first thing in the morning when I discovered the traffic surge yesterday.

GA is more detailed and elaborate but I don't check it all that often. It's also a lot newer than XT which I've been using for around 5 years. GA I've been using for about two years.

For an example of my referred logs, check here.

The Unique Visitors page will give you a real feeling for the size of the surge the last couple of days compared to my usual traffic levels.

Congratulations - I see you started the blog six years ago, well before I knew blogs existed. Just shows the importance of library professionals keep abreast of modern technologies.

Your world and what you do is just so far away from my world and what I do. It is amazing to me all of the different people that make the world go round. And the depth to the jobs. It is so evident from the work that you put into your blog that your library is so lucky to have you.

This blog is so well written. So you must put so much into your job. KC
