a press release relates to many things I am focused on because we are trying to do a version of them these days:
-digitizing an archive
-getting grants
-web design

and fills me with giddy anticipation for the day when UC Santa Cruz completes "The Virtual Terrapin Station"

and today 11/13/09, an update (thanks to Michael Casey for making my day!)

more crumbs...

I keep waiting so long these are outdated by the time I post them.

Do not miss:
the young librarians series

cool: flood maps (when the oceans rise)

free lunch:Freely Accessible Databases for the Public

cnn's take on elibraries (or not)...
but then Bobbi Newman says it best

more good stuff at Tame The Web
a library's code of conduct
(and let me say how much I support supervisors being singled out about COMMUNICATION...:
Communication will be my number one goal, so that everyone on staff understands who makes decisions, how decisions are made and what decisions they can make.)
