Troy Johnson writes "The book selection for September is "Library: An Unquiet History" by Matthew Battles. From the book: "What I am looking for," he writes, "are points of transformation, those moments where readers, authors, and librarians question the meaning of the library itself." Battles shows how throughout history libraries have been places of controversy and change."

With generosity and great intelligence, Blake Carver has given me this opportunity to run a new section of LISNEWS, wireless.lisnews.com.
Bill Drew writes "The LibWireless Discussion List is currently "broken" because of the SoBigvirus messages overwhelming the Lyris list serv it runs on. It is runoffoff a machine in Buffalo, NY maintained by a division of SUNY. There areover 40 lists from it and it just ground to a halt. That was on top of thepower failure last week.

RFH - Open Source Software Speaker
The next SLS Tech Summit is September 25, and we've had a few requests to do a session on open source software for libraries at the client workstation level, probably with a focus on public libraries. For example, how to deploy Open Office, Mozilla, Gimp, and anything else you think should be added to the list. We're looking for one or two persons who could speak to this issue, preferably from experience.
If you are such a person or know of one, please contact me. The caveat, of course, is that we can't really pay you with anything other than kindness, smiles, gratitude, and lunch. Thanks!
Any LISNewsers have some thoughts for her?
