Morphing into a new being

Now that I am retired I have decided to let this work-related blog lapse. Bye bye Jaygee Library Log. It's been a great nine year journey since March 2007.

But very soon I will be starting a new blog about my family history research, and life story writing.

More information and the link will be posted here this space

My new blog is Julia's Life Writing at

This will be a spot for my creative writing and family history books.

Pawlett Press is the imprint I am using for my self-published works, although some of my other writing appears in a Katharine Susannah Writers' Centre (KSP) Past Tense Group Anthology published in print form by Wild Weeds Press.

I have decided to stick with Blogger for my new blog as I already have several other blogs with them, so it makes sense.

The benefits of ORCID

I attended an ANDS webinar on ORCID today: Linking people to their research using ORCID. One of the speakers was Dr Laurel Haak, Executive Director of ORCID (USA).

ORCID "provides a persistent digital identifier that distinguishes you from every other researcher and, through integration in key research workflows such as manuscript and grant submission, supports automated linkages between you and your professional activities ensuring that your work is recognized."

ANDS have some info about ORCID on their website too.

Here is a similar presentation to today's ANDS one (which will probably go up on the ANDS site soon), from Laurek Haak, posted recently to SlideShare:

Video on Keynote for iPad

At our next session with the faculty learning advisors I'll be showing Keynote, which I have just downloaded. I've been looking around for some videos to help me get started using Keynote on the iPad and found this one, which is pretty good.
