Hey everyone!! I was wondering if my fellow library school students can help me out. I am in the midst of putting together some data for my Master\'s thesis on methods that library school students use to keep up to date in the field. I have put a questionnaire online (http://www.freeonlinesurveys.com/rendersurvey.asp?id=296). It takes a few minutes to fill out and would a great help to me. Please, students enrolled in library school only. Thanks. Steven M. Cohen.
Someone writes \"A librarian the other day told me they were a master librarian. I have looked around the library web pages and found titles for the librarians that have the overall responsibility of a particular library, go by general titles as chief librarian, head librarian, university librarian,campus librarian. Since library functions are always changing, I have two questions.

Marcia Geyer writes \"I am seeking information (and willing to share what I receive so we\'ll all be better aware). The subject of my inquiry is, what are other academic libraries or the university I.T. staffs that support them doing to measure utilization of their local LAN and licensed gateway resources? I\'d like to establish contact with anyone who is doing measurement of either the information resources being used or the server and library\'s network resources being \"spent\" to support the information retrieval through the library -- even better, any attempts to correlate information access and resources used to facilitate it.
