I just noticed it\'s been way more than a year since we last nominated folks for our Top Librarian Personalities On The Web.
Please Contact Me, and/or discuss below, with your ideas for this years list. I\'ll be soliciting nominations for the next couple weeks, and post the results sometime in late June. I will also post a reminder before voting closes.
Not much to report in this one, other than to say this is the 7,000th story posted to LISNews.
Thanks to everyone who has made this possible:
Bob Cox, Jen Young, Lee Hadden, Steve Fesenmaier, Charles Davis, Charley Hivley, Gary Deane, and the thousands of other people who shared a story, or two with us over the years.
Special Big thanks to all of the LISNews authors: Aaron,
I\'ve created 6 news RSS feeds for LISNews. The current Feed won\'t be moving, but the rest of the new feeds in all in The New RSS Directory. All feeds are updated once an hour.
I\'ll be adding new feeds as I have time, but don\'t be afraid to ask for something new if you have any ideas.
If this makes no sense to you, go read RSS For Non-Techie Librarians by Mr. Steven M. Cohen. If you\'ll be in DC for CIL \'03 Steven Stuffy Cohen and Jenny Shifty Levine will be speaking on how to use RSS.
If you\'re reading this, you\'re looking at the new LISNews server. So far, the onlything that has gone wrong, that I know of, was the loss of a few comments.
No comments were deleted on purpose, I deleted all the comments for a few hours, by mistake, so I had to restore from a back up that was about 16 hours old.
Other than that, all is well.
Be sure to let me know if you\'d like to host a site with us.
Merry Christmas to All, and to all a good night!
Everyone say Congratulations to LISNews author Ieleen, who got married last week, and ended up on the Front Page Of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution thanks to her unusual wedding.
\"Lee Gregory took the hand of Wendell Neal in holy and unusual matrimony Friday upon the checkered platform of Atlanta Motor Speedway\'s victory lane. No organ played \"Here Comes the Bride.\" Rather, the couple was serenaded by the roar of jet driers trying to prepare a wet track for the day\'s practice and qualifying runs.\"
Over the years we\'ve had some funny from the X-X-X-X dept\'s around here. I\'ve done a bit of digging, and pulled out all the depts that end in *brarian, and posted the collection below for your Friday enjoyment.
I\'m not sure if anyone actually reads them regularly or not, but here they are...
And so on..... -- Read More
I think 5,000 stories is quite a collection, we actually have a larger collection than the first library I worked in. When I started the site almost 3 years ago, I never imagined how far the site would go, or how far it would take me.
The best thing about LISNews is the people that run it, and that ain’t just me. I’ve never referred to this site as “Blake Carver’s LISNews” because it’s really not my site, I may keep it going, but I don’t think I make it great. Starting the site was the easy part, keeping it running isn’t always easy, but so far it’s been fun. The truly hard work is done by the people who do the little things that make LISNews great. -- Read More
