Also: should you decide you want more, or any of the below--or want to make some of your own designs (it's very easy, and I've found the quality of the products excellent)--you should know that Zazzle often offers coupon codes (always check at Retail Me Not before you order), and right now, up until June 22 11:59pm PST (that's tomorrow night), they are offering $10 off a purchase of $10 or more--if you spend 10 bucks, all you pay is S/H.
Here are some more designs from the Shelf Check Zazzle store (sorry for watermarks--Zazzle's doing, not mine):

Happy Pride Month! For a while I've mulled over how to be visibly out at the reference desk. I'm always out when it comes up in conversation with a patron, but I wanted a way to nonverbally indicate to queer or questioning patrons that there's a GLBTQ-friendly library person on board.
I've added a new button to Shelf Check's tiny Zazzle store for Pride 2010. You can buy it here for $1.45 (93 cents in bulk. I set all Shelf Check stuff at Zazzle's base prices). I'm going to get one to wear on my unfortunately-required lanyard. I think the text also works for libraryfolk who are straight supporters of GLBTQ equality (beginning with collection development!), queer outreach, and generally making the library a welcoming place for GLBTQ people:
Update: As of June 1, coupon code SHIPTHANKS10 at Zazzle gives you free S/H on orders up to $10.
I've been out of the loop for the past week due to preparations for my brother's fantastic Memorial Day wedding. Back soon. Meanwhile, have you seen "Librarians Do Gaga," by students and faculty from the U of Washington's Information School? Below or click to view.
