Seattle\'s online services well received

Ben Ostrowsky Writes:

King County
Library System
Seattle has gotten some
great publicity in the
Seattle Times recently.

I can go to my local library and take out a wide range of
fiction and
nonfiction materials. But, when looking for information
on a specific
topic, the most useful books often reside at other
libraries, are checked
out or can\'t leave the building. Yet, if I search the
Internet at home, I
can usually find the information I need, instantly.

Well, maybe not all the information I need, or at least as
authoritative sources as I should have to be
well-informed. It turns out
the library has precious online resources that are
available only through
a library\'s Web site.
