I am Lois Reibach, a professional cataloger. I started this blog in order to give focus to my professional reading. I have been interested in authority control throughout my career, and I am excited to see the new uses of authority data. The blog title comes from the Wikipedia article on authority control. The sidebar will probably be in perpetual beta, but if I wait until it is perfect then the reports coming out of ALA will no longer be current. I did not go to Anaheim, but will point out reports of meetings within the focus of this blog.
