I came across a great photo of the old library being torn down. The new library is visible through the wreckage.

About four years ago, there was a bus or van that used to travel around the country printing books. I think they were printing out Gutenberg books for folks. I can't remember the details.
Does this sound familiar to anyone? What became of the project? This reminded me of it.

I'm almost done with this week's This Week in LibraryBlogland but I can't finish working on it till tonight. I'll be posting it by tomorrow morning. Sorry about the delay.

I think I need to seriously trim the TWiL reading list. Part of the joy of Twilling is seeing patterns between disparate posts, finding conversations in the biblioblogosphere. But now, there's so much to read--adding several blogs to the list every week, for thirteen weeks, it starts to add up. It's turned into a chore. The TWiL joy is gone.
Time to do some culling.

Sorry about not posting This Week in LibraryBlogland the past couple of weeks. I started two new projects, which took extra time in start-up, and then my mouse-related elbow trouble flared up, which slowed everything down. But everything's been figured out, so I'm back now.

Copied from Boing Boing: Hundreds of internet web sites are gathering hundreds, and probably thousands, of entries about missing persons or persons who want to let others know they're okay. The problem is: the data on these sites has no particular form or structure. So it's almost impossible for people to search or match things up. Plus there are dozens of sites - making it hard for a person seeking lost loved ones to search them all.

Sorry, but it looks as if this week's This Week in LibraryBlogland is going to be a day late, maybe two. Too many errands to run.

Does anyone know how to make the library bookmarklet work on a Mac (OS X)? I dragged it to the links bar okay, but nothing happens when I test it. I've tried it on Firefox and IE with equally null results.

Just a quick drive-by post (because I keep forgetting to write up a proper FPP when I have the time to do it properly) re the MGM DVD settlement: is this something that libraries could also take part in? Does anyone have any details about how this works?

(Note: I don't know that the writer worked at the library; it just says it happened at a library.)

3,000th entry! No, not here, on my Livejournal.
Yeah, I scare myself, too.

Back on October 8, I said I was going to cross-post here the library-related stories I posted on my Livejournal . In case anyone noticed that I had stopped: Blake invited me to become an LISNews author. So, instead of posting stories here, I've been posting them to the front page since Tuesday. So far, no one's complained, so I figure I'm doing it okay.
