But I don't FEEL like teaching a three hour EndNote class! #tantrum
I have 18 students enrolled in EndNote & I'm not sure I'm competent. #crisisoffaith #hyperventilating
@Suelibrarian @rockchicklib @haikugirlOz thx. yes. Breathe. I do know more than they do. I am smarter than endnote.
@fionawb I *hate* endnote. Passionately. Why oh Why did I say I would teach this class?
@andvanessa nope. it's a 3 hour special class coz they asked me to.
@andvanessa it's my first one flying solo is all. I usually have a safety net. But I organised this one at short notice & no backup
Well, that #endnote class wasn't nearly as evil as expected. It was so much more evil you couldn't have dreamed up a more evil situation.
#EndNote #Evil Part 1: Overhead Projector of Computer Screen goes kerfluey, have to do first hour without visuals. #EndNote #Evil Part 2: Half the class have brought their own (Mac) laptops which don't download export files the same way as windows
#EndNote #Evil Part 3: 1/2 class w Mac laptops don't follow along when I show them how to download filters so when we export they're lost
#EndNote #Evil Part 4: While I'm teaching with no visuals I have an IT guy failing to fix comp asking inane qs like "where's the remote?"
#EndNote #Evil Part 5: A couple of random undergrad science students decide to join the specialised database session I'm doing for PGs
#EndNote #Evil Part 7: Did I mention the computer went kerfluey because my colleague tried to make it better? #trainingroomfail
#EndNote #Evil Part 10: Due to rush, we had fifteen minutes to cover using word for referencing and in-text citations. #sigh
@malbooth I know. was in a mtg last week & future of libraries discussed. Someone said "if our future is teaching endnote we have no future"
