You’ll find the sheets with the heart on it at the customer service desks in the Liverpool Public Library, and on our website and social media. We want patrons to tell us what they love about their library. The plan is to compile a list of what we do right for this year’s New York Library Association Library Advocacy Day. That’s the time set aside by NYLA for those library advocates from across New York state to meet in Albany to tell their representatives why funding is important.
Changes are coming to your Liverpool Public Library. Much like work you see being accomplished on those popular HGTV shows, our main floor is set for a renovation. In fact, some of those same terms have been thrown around inside these walls in the corner of Tulip and Second streets in the village of Liverpool as we consider the best way to configure our services. Open concept, anyone? More designated spaces? Now you have a chance to pitch in with the process.
Cheryl Costa keeps a close eye on what people see up in our skies. And the writer from Central New York will share stories and statistics at her program “UFOs” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 8, in the Liverpool Public Library’s Carman Community Room. Costa is well known in Central New York as the author of the popular Syracuse New Times blog New York Skies, in which she chronicles what’s going on in the world of unidentified flying objects.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
