Dearest readers on the Internet,

The Active Librarian has released its 2nd issue. We hope you'll take some time to peruse its contents.

Josh Sopiarz reports on a topic all librarians must at some point consider--veteran outreach. His comprehensive list of veteran-specific resources alone is worth the price of admission (well, if there were a price of admission). Forrest Foster and Carl Leak describe their experiences with organizing an open-mic event. And various contributors present a "primer" for purchasing and configuring 3D printing technology.
