Here's what I've been up to over at Alaskan Librarian for the past week:

  • Political and e-communication advice from the Bible
  • Great Blue Heron perusing menu
  • OPAL Highlight: Meet the Millennials: Risk Takers and Rule Makers
  • Try an Alaskan Experience
  • Gulls and empty blog

Please comment here or there as I'm still a regular visitor to LISNews.

In addition to starting the stories above, FGI volunteers started a new feature, a news aggregator. We have loaded up a lot of news feeds from online magazines, blogs and a few from the Government Printing Office and brought them together in one place for you to read them. Just look for the "news aggregator" link on the left hand side of the page.

The news aggregator gives you the option of reading all the sources we at FGI find useful, or reading just ones from these four catagories:

This feature is very much in beta, so please check it out and offer us feedback and new sources, particularly blogs done by government document departments or librarians. Help us build a more useful tool.

I missed a week of updating you on my activities at Alaskan Librarian because I spent a lovely weekend in Anchorage last week.

But here is my mostly weekly exercise in shameless self-promotion. Please come over and discuss. Or discuss here:

I was off in Anchorage last week, so this "New Discussions" covers the past two weeks.

Still, here's what I've been posting about since September 1st:

After a week hiatus and some interface changes at Free Government Information, New Discussions is back.

Starting this week, I will will only comment on FDSys activity if it seems significant, or if the main site or blog goes dark for longer than a month. If you don't already subcribe to the FDSys blog at http://fdsys.blogspot.com, you should be.

One of the new features of FGI is being able to see the five most e-mailed items. As of this Monday, the most e-mailed items were:

  • “Google for government spendingâ€? blocked by unknown Senator
  • GovMine on the Subway
  • 50-State Blue Book updated - now includes South Carolina info
  • Federal Depository Libraries - GovDocs for Jocks
  • Best titles ever!

As plain as I can make it - war bad for terror

In light of mdoneil's recent assertions of world peace through annihilation, I thought I'd try one more time to explain how the President's policy of "fighting them there so we don't have to fight them here" has been a measurable failure.

I'd prefer comments on AlaskanLibrarian, but I'll check back here Friday to see what discussion , if any is going on here.
