The aforementioned Book Cart Drill Team has made it past the YouTube copyright folks.

This is great because you can actually hear the fun and clever lyrics, but you miss out on the crowd noise. There was a lot of it. Good job, ladies!

Enjoy!

My attempt at the Baby Got Books lyrics:

*parody of Sir-Mix-A-Lot's Baby Got Back*

Oh my god, Becki,
look at her books
they are so big
she looks like one of those librarians
who understands those librarians anyway
I mean, her books, they're just so they're so big they're just like out there
she's just so smart

I like big books and I cannot lie
you other brothas' can't deny
that when a girl walks in with an itty bitty waist
and a big book in your face
you check out
that's what it's all about
paying my overdues
I'm looking at the nonfiction
so I can improve my diction
oh baby wanna tell you my preference
meet me in reference
so don't be such a bummer
just give me your – call number!

ooh Dewey Decimals
you say you don't like LC?
well read me, read me
catalog and discard me

*Low Rider by War interlude*

so welcome to the school library
ya got a big dictionary
we don't want books unless you got good looks
you can sleep or read a magazine
if books just ain't your scene
I just can't help myself I like 'em in order
sit and read – don't loiter!
admin thinks it's funny
the budget ain't got no money
so ladies?
YEAH?
ladies?
YEAH?
do you wanna support libraries?
YEAH!
scan it, scan it
scan them barcodes
baby got books

*Reading Rainbow Theme sung by Tina Fabrique interlude*

*Single Ladies by Beyoncé Knowles parody*

if you like it then you shoulda put a hold on it (x4)

Day one was great, rainy and kinda gross, but great.

I didn’t go to many sessions, but had lunch with Megan Oakleaf who is one of my information literacy and assessment heroes.

A great day was capped by a perfect night with a little time spent at the all-conference reception and a night of walking the River Walk with my lovely friends from library school.

I ❤ conference!

Tomorrow (Thursday) the real learning begins.
