Hey there, arty library folks: LISjobs is looking for a logo! (Deadline: July 7th.)

It's a good summer to visit libraries virtually: the American Museum of Natural History research library has a great online exhibit titled "Picturing the Museum" that's chock-full of gorgeous black-and-white photgraphs, the British Library has joined Flickr and posted some fun images of what goes on behind the scenes, and the Chicago Public Library has undergone an "extreme" upgrade which now enables users to renew books online, peruse a kids-only catalog, and more.

You can also print out your own summer reading bookmarks from Worldcat, courtesy of OCLC, and ponder what the "library in the new age" will mean, exactly. I hope it means lots of crazy futuristic architecture, myself.

And finally, a call to action. Author and generally awesome person Terry Pratchett has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's, which is just plain rotten. While we can't do much about the diagnosis, we can help him in raising money for Alzheimer's research. He's donated half a million pounds so far, and the Match It For Pratchett organization has raised quite a bit so far! Spread the word.

Tomorrow: links from others!
