Happy New Year! Problem books await.
Among its city plans and maps, today’s title suggests healthy eating and recovering from your plastic surgery in quiet Henderson, Kentucky. If only it were easier to catalog!
What do Nick Hornby, Joseph Conrad, and J.K. Rowling have in common? Under LC classification, they are a shelf-reading nightmare!
What site do you search for most often? If the search form is simple enough, you might be able to use an OpenSearch browser plugin!
The OCLC online save file is handy for storing and sharing original records in progress, but its behavior discourages saving often. You can eliminate some of this hassle by using my new Connexion macro to save your records!

I am in the middle of constructing another, so comments are most welcome.

To be clear, I don’t supervise programmers; my group is entirely catalogers.
