Protecting Your Library From Ransomware Attacks

As a kid, one of my favorite stories was O. Henry's "The Ransom of Red Chief," about a ransom plot gone awry: the kidnappers are so overwhelmed by the young "victim's" mischievous antics that they end up paying the child's parents to take him back.  And readers of a certain age might associate ransom with a comedy of errors, perhaps John Goodman's character throwing a satchel of dirty laundry during a fake ransom drop gone awry in "The Great Lebowski."

Book Review - "Working as a Data Librarian: A Practical Guide" by Eric O. Johnson

A data librarian is a librarian who specializes in helping people find and use data.  While I'm not a librarian myself, I do help librarians find and use data, so when I saw this book mentioned on Twitter, I was quick to hop on our local library's OPAC and request a copy.  Quick summary: a fantastic introduction to the strategies and tools used by data librarians!
